Introduced at CES 2018, Philips SmartSleep Deep sleep headband became Philips catalyst technology in to the world of consumer sleep enhancement as a wearable solution for individuals who do not get enough sleep due to lifestyle. This solution was the first of the SmartSleep product portfolio, which aims to provide consumers with a breadth of solutions to address sleep issues from insomnia to snoring to simply not getting enough sleep.
The SmartSleep suite of solutions is made up of existing Philips products—including the SmartSleep Deep Sleep Headband and the SmartSleep Sleep and Wake-Up Light (formerly Somneo Connected)—and during CES 2019, Philips will be showcasing three new additions: SmartSleep Snoring Relief Band, SmartSleep Better Sleep Program, and SmartSleep Analyzer.
Philips Smart Sleep Snoring Relief Band is derived from clinical positional therapy, leading to better sleep by adjusting a person’s sleeping habits over time. The sensor is worn in a band around the snorer’s chest and continuously measures sleep behavior to prevent the wearer from turning onto their back. It detects the position chang, and prompts the wearer to stay and sleep on their side.
Also, Philips has partnered with SleepRate to build the SmartSleep Better Sleep Program. Using a smartphone and the user’s wearable sleep tracking device, the Better Sleep program starts with an evaluation of the user’s sleep habits and environment, which will then be used to create a customized and personalized program to help solve sleep challenges. Philips Better Sleep Program includes additional Philips-specific content and behavioral support to help boost program adherence and build confidence. Rooted in the principles of clinical cognitive behavioral therapy, Philips Better Sleep Program is a customized and personalized program that helps to retrain sleep habits for sustainable results.
Finally, the new SmartSleep Analyzer provides personal analysis of users’ sleep based on a brief, online questionnaire and delivers results immediately upon completion to identify sleep challenges and recommend solutions personalized to the user. It developed in collaboration with sleep physicians, specialists, and researchers to identify the most common sleep challenges. Philips chief scientific officer and global lead for behavior change worked closely with scientists and researchers from the Alertness CRC, an Australian-based research collaborative focused on sleep.
