CARLSBAD, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SleepScore Labs, the company behind the science of improving sleep, will present three new abstracts this week at the Rome World Sleep Congress 2022, a leading global sleep conference that brings together the best of sleep medicine and research to advance the field of sleep research and discovery. SleepScore’s presentations come after a remarkable year of research, development and analysis of their more than 85 million hours of objective sleep data collected from their suite of sleep tracking and improvement products. consumers. In 2021, the organization was recognized at SLEEP with 7 abstract publications. SleepScore Labs is the leading mainstream sleep science company in conference abstract publications, having published 17 sponsored studies since 2020.
Of the three abstracts that have been accepted into the World Sleep Congress, two will be presented in oral presentations by SleepScore Data Science Lead Luke Gahan and SleepScore Applied Sleep Scientist Elie Gottlieb, PhD. The first presentation focuses on the influence of age on the impact of external sleep disturbances on our nocturnal sleep. The analysis, based on data from more than 92,000 users, suggests that as we age, fewer environmental disruptors attributed to light, temperature and noise are reported. This research suggests that optimizing bedroom environments may actually have the greatest impact on younger populations than on older people.
“By sharing our ecologically valid big data science findings and publications at global conferences, SleepScore’s applied science allows us to be the bridge between public policy, academia, and consumer sleep research,” said the Dr. Gottlieb. “These longitudinal analyzes using SleepScore’s validated non-contact measurement technologies continue to advance the field of applied sleep research with the goal of advancing our understanding and improving the sleep health of the population while throughout life.”
The second summary presented looks at how our sleep changes with the seasons. As the days get longer, the study found that our sleep schedules change, including in the form of later going to bed and waking up, which ultimately results in reduced duration and efficiency. sleep compared to the winter months. The study further revealed that in the summer, weekend and weekday sleep patterns are quite similar, a trend suggesting that social (external) and biological (internal) factors may be at play.
“Our access to large datasets at SleepScore Labs provides us with a unique opportunity to conduct large-scale scientific research,” Gahan noted. “The combination of our data science expertise and our PSG-validated sleep tracking technology allows us to perform analyzes that would have been virtually impossible to perform just a few years ago. In this analysis, we were able to build a detailed picture of how Americans’ sleep changes over the course of a year, giving us a better understanding of what has the biggest impact on sleep from month to month.
The sleep science society has submitted 14 new abstracts to SLEEP 2022 and continues to grow its repository of sleep data, enabling the development of original research both to help advance our broader understanding of sleep and to provide insight. cutting-edge sleep science to product innovations from strategic partners. .
