ResMed has launched the S+, a personalized sleep solution that uses patented bio-motion sensors, designed to measure an individual’s sleep stages and environment, and deliver personalized feedback that helps improve sleep from the very first night. The devices is the world’s first non-contact sleep system, according to ResMed.
The S+ monitors breathing patterns and body movements without requiring uncomfortable wristbands, mattress strips or electrodes. The system also captures the light, noise and temperature levels in the room and allows consumers to log factors such as caffeine and alcohol intake, as well as exercise, to analyze patterns over time and deliver personalized sleep strategies.
The SleepSensor technology is clinically proven, and the connected system sends real-time data to a consumer’s smartphone or tablet and shares daily sleep scores and charts based on individual sleep patterns and lifestyle.
The capabilities of the S+ go beyond those of fitness devices available on the market, ResMed says, because the S+ algorithm provides personalized suggestions informed by more than two million nights of proprietary sleep data.
“Millions of Americans are already counting their calories or miles walked, but it’s impossible to track and measure the quality of your sleep without assistance,” said Don Darkin, president of ResMed’s sleep-disordered breathing business unit. “Using our patented SleepSensor technology that connects direct to your smartphone, the S+ allows for more accurate in-home monitoring, and represents a quantum leap forward in sleep science to achieve better sleep.”
The S+ works with Apple iOS and Android compatible devices. The free S+ by ResMed app offers easy-to-read sleep scores and analysis along with helpful interactive tools that provide a range of options for a path to better sleep.
According to ResMed, the S+ will be available for the suggested retail price of $149.99 at Bed Bath & Beyond stores beginning in mid-October and online at mysplus.com.
