“Smartbeds” are beds that tailor their degree of firmness and lying comfort to your body and sleeping position. The customised support and relief this creates promotes quicker and better regeneration of the body. As with a tracker, the smartbed also records sleep data, which can be tracked and analysed via an app.
The innovative technology originally comes from the medical industry and was developed especially for bedridden patients. In the USA, “smartbeds” are already available on the market for end consumers and have already proven their value to, for example, professional athletes, those with health problems and people who need to be particularly physically capable. Due to the positive effects on sleep and general health, smartbeds will soon also be available in Switzerland. In 2020, BICO will expand its range to include my zmartbed, and thus bring the first European smartbed onto the market. The degree of firmness of the innovative mattress can be regulated individually to any setting desired, with the 5-zoned structure adapting to the different areas of the body. 2 000 integrated sensors record every individual sleeping position 200 times a second, and automatically and dynamically ensure highly tailored support and relief. The bed is controlled using an app, which also analyses the sleep data recorded and thus makes you aware of the quality of your sleep. If desired, the technology can be incorporated into a box spring bed or a standard mattress with a frame insert in a fully concealed and unobtrusive manner.
