Pleasant sleep program technology

Sanyo Electric has developed an "electric blanket/sheet" able to control temperature during sleep in consideration of human mechanism. For example, the blanket temperature can be set at 34C during the introduction phase of sleeping, then lowered to around 30C during sleeping, and raised again just before awakening.

The technology helps "users fall asleep in a short period of time, sleep well, and wake up feeling refreshed," said a Sanyo spokeperson. The tests revealed that it takes only about 15-25 minutes for a subject to fall asleep, who previously needed 30-40 minutes without using the blanket. Three out of five subjects found their awakening as improved, thanks to this pleasant sleep program technology.

The electric blankets will hit the market on September 1, 2005. One of the products will feature a heater able to reduce electromagnetic wave discharge. Hopefully they will also do something about the rather depressing color of the blanket.

From Tech-on.
