Back pain is one of the leading causes of sleep deprivation, which is something we all want to fend off, as it leads to a significant number of health issues. Unfortunately, it is a universal impairment of our modern society.
Sleep experts have various solutions meant to help us lower or eliminate our back pains during rest, and so does technology as well. Smart mattresses, controlled by easy-to-run apps, are becoming more and more popular. Their primary purpose is to offer us our well-deserved good night repose.
I’ve seen a lot of such apps trending on the market and most of them present approximately the same features: sleep monitoring sensors, night-time noises recording, smart alarms, data collecting and even the ability to give out suggestions on how to improve our slumber habits.
But there are also the mattress-controlling apps, which turn our beds into smart bunks. That way, they can help us not only understand our sleeping problems but also get a better rest and defeat the pain. Here are three of the best mattress apps I found to be extremely valuable:
Eight Sleep Tracker
The package consists of an app and the elaborated sensors’ layer which the app controls and the algorithm that makes everything function. All together, they will turn your mattress into your best friend. You can enjoy the dual zone warming feature and the advanced sleep tracking system. By gathering information about your sleeping habits, heart rhythm, breathing rate, etc. (even for two people separately), the Eight Sleep Tracker will identify the reason for your restless sleep. Tossing and turning in bed may be caused by back pains; the app records your movements during the night and makes practical suggestions on what you could improve.
Smart Duvet Breeze
The app controls a bloating-air mat (which goes inside the duvet cover of your mattress), through a control box that you’re supposed to hide under the Smart Duvet self-making bed. The air gets pushed into the mat; you can choose warm or cold air to be driven into the mat – or both of them, but independently for each side of the bed, according to individual preferences. The right temperature and the proper back support will create a sound sleeping environment for your body, which is a big help for all those suffering from back pain.
