From the world of digital technology new functions, wearable devices and smart objects are coming, which can monitor our bodies while we sleep and - if necessary - set on or off alarm bells.
Digital sleep well-being and the "Wind Down" function
We've often heard of people checking their phones before bed and, without realising it, one or two hours have gone by Sameer Samat, vice president of product management at Google.
Wearables to combat insomnia
An example comes from the Australian Flinders University, where "Thim", a device that helps you fall into sleep, was born. It has the shape of a ring, so it is comfortable and easy to wear at night.
They recommend using it for at least seven consecutive nights. "Thim" also includes a "nap" mode. According to Leon Lack, this should last 10 minutes, the perfect time to recharge your energy in the middle of the day. Sleeping too much, or too little, leaves you feeling tired.
With a simple timer, "Thim" will help you rest in the right way.
Smart fabrics for a comfortable night's sleep
Eight's product is a smart mattress cover that learns to adjust the temperature of the bed to the preferences of those who sleep there, even setting different temperatures on the two sides of a double bed. The smart bedspreads understands, among others, the quantity and quality of our sleep, our wake up time, the kind of heartbeat we have, how is our breathing and the bedroom’s humidity level, communicating the data via smartphone to try to improve our habits.
