Atlanta-based Serta Simmons Bedding LLC partnered with sleep technology company SleepScore Labs, headquartered in Carlsbad, California, on a new sleep study that measured sleeper satisfaction with one of the latest iComfort by Serta models. Self-reported results from an unspecified number of participants who slept on the CF4000 mattress showed that 80% found the bed improved their overall sleep. Respondents also said they fell asleep faster, felt cooler in bed and achieved better sleep throughout the night without waking up, compared with their previous mattress, which also was a foam bed.
Consumers can download the free SleepScore Labs app or upgrade to the paid version and begin tracking their sleep by placing their phones on their bed stand each night. The noncontact app uses sound waves to analyze and deliver a trove of sleep data, as well as a daily SleepScore.
“A study like this opens a lot of doors for further research and development of not only mattresses, but other bedding products in the market,” said Colin Lawlor, SleepScore chief executive officer. “We’re thrilled to partner with Serta Simmons Bedding on future studies to bring this type of research into their future product development.”
JD Velilla, SSB head of sleep experience, said: “As the leading bedding company, we’ve always been focused on providing better sleep, and we want to understand how to take that further with our products to unlock the true potential behind a great night of rest. It’s about understanding and exploring new ways to really impact someone’s sleep health and recovery.”
