Problems sleeping at night aren’t exactly uncommon. In fact, a high percent of the U.S. population struggles to get enough sleep — whether it’s due to an especially busy schedule or from continuously tossing and turning at night. There is some good news, however. New technologies may help solve the problem. Here are a few to look into:
Wearable Sleep Trackers
“Popular apps and wearables can track how long you sleep, how long it takes to fall asleep, and how often you wake up at night. In other words, these sleep trackers often help consumers get to the root of the problem. These trackers may help U.S. men and women determine whether they have the symptoms of sleep apnea, for example. Wearers may be able to show doctors readings from wearable technologies, instead of going through the time-consuming process of a sleep study.
It may sound a little hard to believe, but several manufacturers are working on sheets and pillow cases that maintain a constant temperature of 65 degrees. In spite of fluctuations in household temperatures. The sheets use special fabric to regulate sleep climates.
Adjustable Electric Beds
Adjustable beds have been available for a while now. The popular Craftmatic® brand for instance, has sold over one million adjustable beds and mattresses. The Craftmatic® brand continues to improve them, and come out with even better models as time goes on. Many Americans prefer electric beds to flat mattresses. What’s more, adjustable beds may have extra features. For example, Craftmatic® Adjustable Beds, are equipped with optional heat and soothing massage.
Technology may help us overcome our sleeping troubles. Wearable technologies are more convenient than sleep studies, new sheets may be temperature controlled, and electric beds may help promote comfort.
