smart bed: Since the first iPhone implemented the ‘smart’ concept in mobile phones in 2007, in these 15 years we have seen how all the things we use every day have become ‘smart’, such as the television, the car, the washing machine, the lights, the blinds and yes: even the bed. Because there are’smart beds‘ or smart beds, such as those manufactured by the Sleep Number company.
A smart anti-snoring bed
Using the framework offered by the CES event, the first major electronics show of the year, Sleep Number has released the latest version of its 360 smart bed. The company has incorporated more features into the product, such as the ability to regulate body temperature.
The graphite infused foam mattress can cool or heat each side of the bed to maintain each person’s desired temperature throughout the night. The Climate360 mattress also has this function. The smart bed can also warm your feet to help you sleep.
Like the current model, it has a snore detection function. This allows the bed to lift your head to reduce moderate snoring. In addition, the bed can be fully tilted to open the airway and help you breathe more easily, keeping your spine properly aligned.
Designed to adapt to your needs as you grow
One of the central ideas of the latest model is that it is designed to adapt to your changing needs. For example, it can be raised or lowered to help people who are pregnant, have an injury, or simply grow old with getting in and out of bed. The bed is able to monitor parameters such as heart rate and respiratory rate and whether the person has had a good night’s sleep.
The 360smart bed provides sleep tracking and details things like sleep duration and quality. Over time, it can potentially check for signs of insomnia, sleep apnea, or cardiac events and alert the sleeper to possible conditions. According to the creators, software updates will add more functionality and knowledge over time.
