believe sleep technology will help them be healthier.

“It’s a misperception that you need to have a sleep disorder to benefit from sleep technology,” added Cloud. “Sleep is a vital sign of health and wellness, even more so than diet and fitness. In NSF's most recent Sleep Health Index, more than 40 million Americans reported that poor sleep or lack of sleep impacted their activities at least once in the previous week. Everyone can benefit from better sleep. This represents a significant—and achievable—education and marketing opportunity for the sleep technology industry.”

The study results also illuminated another education opportunity made possible by engaging healthcare providers. While nearly 60 percent of survey respondents said a recommendation from their healthcare provider would be important in their decision to use sleep technology, only 18 percent of users reported they received such a recommendation. Given the significant health benefits of better sleep, from improved mood and memory to the ability to maintain a healthy weight, support from the healthcare community could have a critical impact on user rates.

The Consumer Awareness and Perceptions of Sleep Technology was designed and formulated jointly by CEA and NSF. The complete study is available for free for CEA member companies at members.CE.org. Non-members may download the full study at the CEA Store .
