Custom8 develops smart bed

Custom8 developed a smart sleep system with 7 independent zones that are automatically adjusted for your body and sleep posture. The smart bed can adjust every module from extremely firm to very soft, while you are lying on the bed. It provides a correct ergonomic support and resolves your complex choice when buying a new bed.

Even with future body changes, the smart bed follows these changes by changing the settings of the 7 modules.

The smart bed can be equipped with a module that registers your sleep posture and actively adjusts the firmness of the different modules to achieve a perfect support all night long.

The future of sleeping systems

A very interesting story (in dutch) was published by Peter Vantyghem in the Belgian newspaper De Standaard about the future of sleeping systems (“Op zoek naar de matras van de toekomst“).

Even though we use them on a daily basis, few people in Flanders have attention for a good mattress or want to pay for it. Nevertheless the awareness is growing that a good night’s sleep, on a customized mattress, is worth a higher price. Sleep will become more hightech, and Flanders should join the movement.

BedTimes story: Mattress Manufacturing Reinvented

BedTimes spoke with a broad cross section of the industry to uncover how advances in digital technology are impacting the design and manufacturing of today’s sleep products. Many of these advances were on display in the machinery halls and component showrooms of the biennial Interzum Cologne trade fair held in May 2015 in Cologne, Germany. As you read, mark your calendars for next month’s ISPA EXPO March 9-12 in Orlando, Florida.

Read the full story in BedTimes about the mattress manufacturing reinvented and certainly give attention to the part about ‘Foundational’ technology!

Personal sleep scan by Equilli based on Idoshape sensormats

Equilli is a new player in the Belgian mattress market offering personalized sleep comfort. They have developed a sleep advice system (Personal Sleep Scan) for their modular mattress range. It is based on the indentation measurement from the Idoshape sensormat.

personal sleep scan measures the indentation contours

why use indentation for a personal sleep scan?

A pressure measurement provides information about the contact pressure between the skin and the mattress surface. It is very useful in the medical field where pressure peaks should be avoided for bedridden patients. It is also used in mattress shops as a measure of the comfort level of the sleep system. However, it provides no information about the deformation of the sleep system and thus about the shape of the spine.The deflection measurement of the personal sleep scan provides the necessary information about how deep the important body parts (shoulders, waist and hips) are sinking into the mattress at different sleep postures (back or side sleeping).
