Sleep Number has introduced its next-generation smart beds and Lifestyle Furniture, sold separately but optimally used together to help sleepers achieve their best sleep.
The new smart beds evolved from the original Sleep Number 360 smart beds and incorporate advancements based on learnings from over 19 billion hours of longitudinal sleep data from the 360 smart beds. The beds use embedded, research-grade sensors and artificial intelligence to learn the biometrics and sleep patterns of each sleeper and automatically adjust to meet a person’s changing needs.
The adjustments cater to each individual with no action required by the sleeper and deliver Sleep Number’s firmness adjustability for personalized sleep. Additionally, Sleep Number’s Lifestyle Furniture—an upholstered bed surrounded with an adjustable table and support bar—provides accessories to support varying life stages, including aging and recovery.
Announced at CES 2022, the new Sleep Number smart bed optimizes the combination of Sleep Number’s longitudinal data, one’s own personal sleep data, and the latest in sleep science to:
- Monitor vital personal health data, including average heart rate, average breathing rate and motion, and sleep trends using research-grade sensors.
- Balance temperature and automatically adjust to a person’s individual shape, sleeping positions, and movement on each side of the bed based on their unique sleep needs, since science shows sleep needs change day-to-day with different activities and over time by life stage. For the first time, all smart beds will feature cooling properties thanks to a breathable layer to detract heat.
- Continuously analyze and personalize sleep insights in partnership with sleep health experts, which individuals can use for preventative and proactive health care.
“Our mission to improve lives by individualizing sleep experiences is fully realized with next-gen smart beds,” says Shelly Ibach, chair, president, and CEO of Sleep Number, in a press release. “Sleep Number was founded on individuality: Science tells us no two people are alike, and no two nights’ sleep are the same. We are setting the precedent that what you sleep on is vitally important, and beds should evolve with a sleeper’s changing life and health needs. We’re proud to build upon our legacy of award-winning wellness technologies and make next level sleep more attainable for every sleeper, during every life stage.”
The smart bed ecosystem benefits from an advanced, connected health platform that was introduced with the launch of the Sleep Number Climate360 smart bed in October 2022. The platform combines advancements in embedded software capabilities, artificial intelligence, and machine learning algorithms, as well as newer chip technology.
Over time, the smart beds may be able to identify out-of-norm events and alert sleepers to pattern changes and, in the future, may also detect illness and alert sleepers to potential health conditions including insomnia, sleep apnea, or cardiac events, according to a press release from Sleep Number.
Features of the new Lifestyle Furniture include ambient lighting on the back of the headboard to support one’s circadian rhythm; individual reading lights that adjust in color and intensity and rotate; built-in, individual speakers that mask in-bed and environmental noise; and a support bar designed to provide extra support when entering or exiting the bed.
