The Tech Blog Writer Podcast - Inspired Tech Startup Stories & Interviews With Tech Leaders, CEOs, Entrepreneurs and Innovators On This Daily Tech Podcast


Jan 11, 2018

At CES 2018, Sleep Number Corporation provided a glimpse into the future of health and wellness. From identifying and warning of a heart attack to detecting sleep apnea, the Sleep Number 360™ smart bed’s biometric sleep tracking technology and comprehensive sleep database are laying the foundation for an effortless sleep and health platform.

I invited Pete Bils from Sleep Number to find out more about how the 360 smart bed’s robust SleepIQ technology platform integrates sleep science, sophisticated biometrics and artificial intelligence to provide consumers with effortless adjustability and tangible improvements to their health.

We also discuss if this technology could also potentially:

  • Detect irregular breathing or heart beat patterns, like sleep apnea or a heart attack – and alert emergency services.
  • Identify the flu or other epidemics as they spread locally, and communicate this information to health officials and the public.
  • Play a role in monitoring patients outside of a hospital by sharing the related personal data with your doctor to support a diagnosis.
  • Monitor recovery following medical procedures, so you can recover at home instead of at a medical facility.
