Sleep Number Shows Us a Glimpse of the Future with Their Sleep Number 360

CES 2018 is kicking into full gear and one of the biggest highlights so far has easily been by Sleep Number.

Last year we raved about Sleep Numbers announcements and how they help to identify and warn users of heart attacks, sleep apnea, and most importantly, adequate sleep. So with the Sleep Number 360 Smart Bed, courtesy of the biometric sleep technology built, you’ll have an effortless sleep almost immediately.

“We envision a future where higher quality sleep transforms consumers’ health and wellness,” said Shelly Ibach, Sleep Number president and chief executive officer. “Sleep Number’s 360 smart bed’s robust SleepIQ technology platform integrates sleep science, sophisticated biometrics and artificial intelligence to provide consumers with effortless adjustability and tangible improvements to their health.”

So this week at CES, The SleepIQ technology platform is one of the largest, most comprehensive databases of biometric sleep data in the world. WHat does this mean as a user? This means each night, the SleepIQ technology reads hundreds of measurements per second, tracks sleep sessions, and analyzes it based on four billion data points. Other interesting things that the SleepIQ has the potential of doing is:

  • Detecting irregular breathing or heart beat patterns, like sleep apnea or a heart attack – and alert emergency services.
  • Identifying the flu or other epidemics as they spread locally, and communicate this information to health officials and the public.
  • Plays a role in monitoring patients outside of a hospital by sharing the related personal data with your doctor to support a diagnosis.
  • Monitors recovery following medical procedures, so you can recover at home instead of at a medical facility.
