Sleep Number recently announced My Daytime Alertness, a new health and wellness daytime alertness feature. Insights from this Sleep Number 360® smart bed feature, along with the brand’s other wellness features, help sleepers continuously achieve higher quality sleep and improve their overall health and wellbeing.
My Daytime Alertness was inspired by the trusted Karolinska sleepiness scale, a measure of self-reported sleepiness and alertness. The new feature provides advanced, real-time insights that pair each sleeper’s personal sleep data with self-reported information and sleep science. After waking up, each sleeper indicates how alert they feel using a sliding scale. From there, the response is paired with their sleep data and sleep science facts to provide a personalized tip for how to attain better quality sleep. The feature comes on all new Sleep Number 360® smart beds; current 360® smart bed sleepers can now enjoy My Daytime Alertness via an over-the-air update.
Sleep Number has leveraged and learned from over nine billion hours of sleep data gathered from over 1.2 billion sleep sessions, generating comprehensive, longitudinal data at scale. Sleep Number’s proprietary SleepIQ® technology is embedded into every 360® smart bed and automatically collects and analyzes billions of data points while conducting one of the largest real-world sleep studies every night.
The SleepIQ® update also features simplified navigation, making it easier to access other wellness features such as Circadian Rhythm Insights, Heart Rate Variability and Monthly HealthIQ™ Wellness Reports.
“Guided by our resolute belief in the life-changing impact of quality sleep – and propelled by years of deliberate investments in sleep health innovations – our 360® smart beds continue to deliver increasing value to all of our smart bed sleepers,” said Shelly Ibach, President and CEO, Sleep Number. “We are excited to offer this latest feature to connect quality sleep to daytime alertness as part of your individualized digital health insights.”
