Sound sleep and respiratory health – new innovations from Philips

Share article:

Philips SmartSleep Deep sleep headband was founded on 10 years of sleep research by industry leading experts and supported by four years of Philips research and development. It’s ideal for patients who:
 
  • Are between 18 and 50 years old
  • Sleep less than 7 hours per night due to lifestyle
  • Have no issues falling or staying asleep
  • Sleep well when asleep
Philips Deep sleep headband is a closed-loop, EEG-based system that uses highly sensitive sensors not only to detect deep sleep, or slow wave sleep, in real time, but to enhance it via acoustic stimulation2,3,4 without causing arousal. It has been shown that SWS is significant because it has beneficial effects on the restoration of cognitive function and positively influences memory consolidation and learning capacity during the day. By improving slow wave sleep with acoustic stimulation, sleep quality is enhanced and daytime energy is increased without additional sleep time.1
Note that Philips Deep sleep headband is not for those who suffer from serious sleep conditions such as insomnia or obstructive sleep apnea.
