BioSmart Sciences with headquarters in Sacramento, Calif., debuted a collection of sleep-improving mattresses and pillows at the winter Las Vegas Market Jan. 28-Feb. 1.
The Bios Anti Snore/Anti Sleep Apnea Pillow retails for $129.95 and was clinically tested at the Center for Human Sleep Research at Stanford University. The contoured pillow allows sleep apnea patients to adjust neck height to help keep airways open and has surface contours that hold users in the correct back- or side-sleeping position.
Six Bios mattresses, priced from $2,000 to $4,000 in queen sizes, have stretch-knit covers and polyurethane cores with four to six “performance layers,” some with synthetic or 100% natural latex.
According to a company news release, the patented beds use “science-based designs” that purposely do not incorporate memory foam for improved pressure relief, spinal alignment and the prevention of “heat build-up.”
BioSmart reported that independent pillow trials with protocols developed at Stanford yielded a 78% reduction in snoring events and a 24% reduction in symptoms of mild obstructive sleep apnea. Clinical trials of Bios mattresses yield a host of findings from better, deeper sleep to reduced aches and pains on awakening.
