CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, November 21, 2023 / — SleepScore Labs, the global leaders in sleep science and technology services, and Therabody, the cutting-edge wellness technology company, are pleased to announce the transformative findings of their collaborative research. The validation study, conducted by SleepScore Labs, analyzed 676 nights of objectively measured sleep and revealed that the use of Therabody SmartGoggles is associated with improved sleep quality and sleep duration. Additionally, the research participants reported reduced anxiety and stress, as well as increased relaxation.

The research highlights the positive impact of the Therabody SmartGoggles on multiple sleep outcomes. The study measured objective sleep using the PSG-validated SleepScore Max, along with questionnaires examining self-reported sleep.

The results demonstrated that participants slept longer and experienced a longer duration of deep sleep after using the SmartGoggles before bed, compared to their baseline sleep. Furthermore, they woke up less often and spent less time awake during the night after initially falling asleep. SleepScore, an overall sleep quality measure, also improved when SmartGoggles were used before bed.

In addition to the objective improvements in sleep, participants reported feeling reduced anxiety, decreased stress levels, increased relaxation, and greater sleepiness immediately after using the SmartGoggles before bed. These self-report measures further support the effectiveness of the Therabody SmartGoggles in promoting relaxation and reducing stress. Participants also reported a significant enhancement in sleep quality and feeling more well-rested in the morning when they used the SmartGoggles before bed.

Importantly, sleep improvements were observed without the need for invasive or pharmacological interventions, which can often be uncomfortable, expensive, and accompanied by adverse side effects. Instead, the Therabody SmartGoggles provide a non-invasive, non-habit forming consumer product that can serve as a novel solution for individuals seeking to improve their sleep.

The impact of sleep problems on the global population cannot be underestimated, as they can lead to a range of physical and mental health issues. With evidence-based and non-invasive consumer products such as Therabody SmartGoggles, individuals now have access to an accessible, effective, and easy-to-use solution for improving their sleep quality and overall well-being.
