When we don’t get a good night’s sleep, we can usually tell simply by the way we feel the next day—we’re tired, unproductive, unable to think clearly, etc. But it’s much harder to pinpoint why we didn’t sleep well, or at what point during the night things went wrong. And while there are a number of “sleep trackers” on the market which promise to deliver useful data on our sleep patterns, the only true measurement of sleep—or at least the gold standard for objectively measuring sleep—involves multiple sensors attached to the body, which disrupts comfort, and therefore disrupts sleep. What if there was a different solution—one that didn’t involve physical contact with the body at all, but could still capture, analyze, and make sense of all the data associated with sleep? Now there is. Roy Raymann, Ph.D., joins the podcast to discuss a new technology 13 years in the making that could forever change how we collect sleep data.
He’s the Vice President of Sleep Science and Scientific Affairs at SleepScore Labs, and he brings over 25 years’ worth of research experience to the table. Dr. Raymann discusses all the details of this new technology, which utilizes radio waves (sound waves), algorithmic operations, and data processing to not only capture the micro-movements we make during sleep, but also analyze and make sense of them. Perhaps the best part is that it doesn’t require contact with the body at all, which means sleep won’t be disturbed by the sensors and wires that were previously used to study it.
