Help your patients personalize their sleep experience, and wake up feeling refreshed

Share article:

Active, healthy persons—high performers in both work and life—might need a little help winding down at the end of the day. A good night’s sleep is critical to meeting life’s demands and responsibilities. Accustomed to feeling in control during their day, many are looking for smart tech solutions that will allow them to better manage their sleep and waking.

 

Some people experience mild changes in energy levels in winter, with increased lethargy, low spirits, and sleepiness.  

Wake-up lights can simulate the natural power of daylight to help improve energy levels and well-being. Several independent studies have shown that the Somneo Connected wake-up light enhances the experience of waking up, improves mood, and makes users feel more refreshed in the morning.

Further research findings on wake-up lights and their effects

Here are brief summaries of three studies that evaluated how wake-up lights affect the sleep experience:

In comparing the waking experience using a wake-up light of different intensities (0 lux, 50 lux, and 250 lux) against waking without a light, this study found that waking up is of overall better quality with gradually increasing light levels prior to an alarm than without light. Improved energy levels, easier rising, and better mood, productivity and social interactions resulted. Further, sleep inertia, the transient period of grogginess after awakening, was reduced when a wake-up light was used.1

The effect of artificial dawn using wake-up lights during the last 30 minutes of sleep on the subsequent dissipation of sleep inertia was investigated. Subjective sleepiness was significantly decreased and subjective activation increased after waking up in the artificial dawn condition compared with control, in which lights were turned on upon waking. Artificial dawn accelerated the decline in skin temperature and in the distal-to-proximal skin temperature gradient after getting up. No significant effects of artificial dawn on performance, core body temperature, and cortisol were found. These results suggest that the physiology underlying the positive effects of artificial dawn on the dissipation of sleep inertia involves lightening sleep and changes in temperature after awakening.2
