The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveals that about 70 million people in the U.S alone are suffering from chronic sleep disorders like short sleep, insomnia, snoring, and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The number of patients with sleep complaints is increasing at an exponential rate, making sleep disorder care a major issue in healthcare. If left untreated, these issues can lead to severe health problems.
One of the biggest sleep disorders that people often suffer from is snoring. A new wave of technologies is helping the healthcare industry comprehend and enhance sleeping habits and eliminate sleeping disorders. Various reports suggest a strong growth of sleep care wearables in the near future, given the growing cases of sleep disorders which are only aggravating with time. Technology enhancements have led to the development of anti-snoring pillows. Smart Motion Pillow is a trending sleep gadget that has artificial intelligence (AI) infused into it. This AI-based pillow offers a snore-free sleep by tracking the head position and the snoring sounds. When the individual begins to snore, the airbags present in the delicate cotton of the pillow inflate automatically. The inflation adjusts to an angle and height, so the individual naturally tilts her/his head gently and gradually to stop snoring. No jolt movements—the AI-infused pillow’s increase is subtle and quiet; it follows an easy and smooth lifting mechanism.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared shift work a possible carcinogen. Considering this update, the healthcare industry today is focusing on helping people re-adjust better to the changing schedules of their work. Researchers have found out that light therapy is one of the best solutions for these disorders. PocketSky is a light therapy wearable that is trending this year. The device collapses to the size of a ballpoint pen, and it can be worn like glasses. It emits blue light to the user to help facilitate circadian alignment.
