“The it bed is made for the millennial customer who believes quality
sleep is essential to their health, wellbeing and overall performance,”
said Shelly Ibach, president and chief executive officer,
The it bed is a CES Innovation Awards honoree in multiple categories: Fitness, Sports and Biotech, and Home Appliances. The bed was recognized for its:
- SleepIQ® technology — SleepIQ technology integrated into the bed tracks your sleep, offers insights and makes suggestions for the best sleep of your life. Touch-free, biometric sensors track your whole body hundreds of times per second (heart and breathing rates, presence and restfulness). Based on your individual SleepIQ® data, the technology learns your routine, and uses adaptive algorithms and predictive modeling to recommend adjustments to your daily habits and environment.
- ActiveComfort™ technology — The it bed has dual, foam-filled air chambers that respond to individuals’ constantly changing needs and adjust to your ideal level of comfort, firmness and support (your Sleep Number® setting).
- SleepIQ® API — With SleepIQ API (Application Program Interface) on the inside, you can connect to your world outside and track items important to you — individualized comfort, exercise, nutrition, environment, schedules — to make you smarter about your sleep.
Based on your daily activity, SleepIQ technology makes recommendations for your best night’s sleep. For example, after a hard work out, SleepIQ technology might suggest a different Sleep Number setting and going to bed earlier to recover. And research shows that when Sleep Number customers adjust the firmness of their bed, they are 58 percent more likely to improve their sleep quality.
“Today, we collect more than a billion biometric data points a night, and this next step in expanding our technology platform will further strengthen our data analytics to deliver even better individualized sleep solutions for our customers,” said Ibach. “This is an exciting time where we see people adopting technology to improve individual health and wellness faster than ever before.”
The it bed will be exclusive to Sleep Number and will be available at itbed.com
