A new study analyzing nearly 700 nights of sleep has revealed that participants using a mattress topper showed improvements in sleep quality, along with other self-reported benefits, according to a release from sleep science and technology company SleepScore Labs.

Objective sleep was measured using SleepScore Max, a non-contact monitor designed to unobtrusively measure sleep at home. During the study, participants tracked their sleep while using their existing mattress with no topper for three weeks. 

Following this baseline period, participants continued to track their sleep while using their same mattress with the addition of the Dormeo Premium Mattress Topper for five weeks, including a two-week adjustment period. This sleep data, along with daily survey responses, provided insights into the impact of the topper on sleep quality and participant experiences.

According to SleepScore Labs, 100% of participants reported feeling comfort and support when using the Dormeo Premium Mattress Topper, compared to 25% who reported comfort and 46% who reported support when asked about their mattress before receiving the topper. Additionally, participants reported feeling cooler at night (125% increase) and more well-rested in the morning (104% increase) when using the Dormeo Premium Mattress Topper.

The sleep data also revealed that participants experienced a 12% reduction in nighttime awakenings when using the Dormeo Premium Mattress Topper compared to when they slept on the same mattress with no topper. For participants who added the Dormeo product to their existing innerspring mattress, significant improvements in deep sleep were seen.

“We are thrilled to now have the objective evidence to substantiate what we have been hearing over and over again from our customers; our topper is changing lives. Our mission at Dormeo is to improve lives through better sleep through innovation, and that is exactly what we are doing with the premium mattress topper,” Scott Reid, CEO of Dormeo North America, the manufacturer of the mattress topper, in a release.
