When it comes to health, we often hear people talk about diet trends like quinoa, kale and oat milk; or even the latest exercise methods to check out, like CrossFit and Flycycle. However, not many people talk about sleep as an essential element in living a healthy lifestyle. In today’s fast-paced and hectic environment, technology is enabling us to do more every day. However, where smartphones and online streaming services will probably reduce your sleeping time, Slumberland has instead decided to use technology to help you get a better night’s rest. To that end, it has introduced the latest MyZmartBed. First, let’s take a look at why sleep is so important. Sleep is not only essential so your body gets to rest, but it is also crucial for the health of your brain as well. There are a few stages of sleep. The first is where you fall into a light sleep, often drifting in and out of it. Then as your brain waves continue to slow down, you will fall into a deep NREM (non-rapid eye movement) phase. This is the most restorative phase of sleep.
During this time, your brain will work to convert short-term memory into long-term memory and this is the time where your brain releases the growth hormone into your body which is important for cell reproduction and repair. Then, at last, you will go into a REM (rapid eye movement) stage where you dream.
Studies indicate that when you regularly get an optimal amount of sleep, you lower the levels of stress and inflammation to your cardiovascular system, which in turn reduces the risks of strokes or developing heart conditions. Also with more sleep, your brain becomes healthier, improving your memory and ensuring that it is more effective and productive throughout the day.Thus understanding the importance of sleep, Slumberland has developed the MyZmartBed designed to give everyone a level of comfort, tailor- made to fit their body shape and sleeping preference. By using the MyZmartBed app, Wi-Fi connection and a pump, the bed will automatically detect the five core zones of your body including legs, posterior, lumbar, shoulder and head areas, and adapt the bed accordingly so your body gets full support throughout the night.
This system works by utilising a patented MyZmartBed’s Sensor Layer with over 2,000 sensor points per side spread throughout the bed to cover. This technology comes from Responsive Surface Technology (ReST) and won the 2015 CES Innovation Award along with the 2019 NSF SleepTech® Award.
There is a reason why Slumberland is calling its MyZmartBed the world’s first smartbed is because it offers a functionality unlike any other. Through the app, users will be able to fully customise their sleeping habits deciding whether they prefer a firm or soft bed, or even programming the bed to give a certain area more or less support. And for those that want a no-frills user experience, they can set it to automatic and the bed will do the rest. Best of all, each side of the bed is also capable of its own set of settings thus giving you and your partner a personalised sleep experience.
For those who love tracking their sleeping patterns, the Slumberland MyZmartBed app also records sleep data, giving you the necessary information to know how well you are sleeping. Understanding your body positions and movements throughout the night may help you and doctors diagnose if you are sleeping properly or have sleep disorders like apnea, insomnia or restless leg syndrome. At the end of the day, Slumberland can’t control the number of hours you sleep each night, but what it can do is exponentially improve the quality of the sleep you get.
The Slumberland MyZmartBed is available at a promotional price of MYR39,880 and the package includes the mattress, bed frame, delivery and installation, and 10-year warranty.
