Philips device was used for NASA research


The SmartSleep Deep Sleep Headband from Philips has been selected for research into improving astronaut sleep. TRISH, a research institute funded by space organization NASA, will use the Philips special headband for two studies.

For two months, 24 test subjects will use the sample of technology from the Dutch group at home. They will be subjected to all kinds of tests every day. In addition, a laboratory test will take place in which multiple sleeping conditions of space flights are simulated. Twelve test subjects are subjected to this, all of whom wear the Deep Sleep headband.

The Philips headband is a smart application to improve the quality of deep sleep for people who do not get enough sleep. The product already came on the market in the United States last year.

TRISH focuses on research into space health.

“At TRISH, we are always looking for emerging technologies that can reduce the risks to human health,” explains director Dorit Donoviel.

Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Wisconsin-Madison also participate in the studies in question. No financial details were disclosed.
