Katie Couric Discusses Importance of Smart Sleep in “Tech for Good”
Podcast from Sleep Number Booth

LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–


What:

  At CES 2019, Sleep Number (NASDAQ: SNBR), the sleep innovation
leader, advanced the conversation around the importance of quality
sleep on individual performance and the impact of smart technology –
such as the 360 smart bed – on a healthy life. Sleep Number convened
several high-profile events at their booth, which once again
showcased the power of sleep and the company’s 360 smart bed:
 

● The “Sleep as the Competitive Edge” panel discussion included
NFL and Olympic athletes, sleep experts and influencers, who
shared the impact of sleep on performance and overall health and
wellness.

 

● As a purpose-driven company committed to improving people’s
lives, Sleep Number also hosted journalist and author Katie Couric
for a series of “Tech for Good” conversations. Katie spoke with
innovative technology leaders, including Sleep Number President
and CEO Shelly Ibach, about how their companies are using
technology to deliver life-changing impact. Couric highlighted how
Sleep Number’s 360 smart bed uses the Company’s proprietary
SleepIQ technology platform to automatically adjust the comfort
for each individual sleeper throughout the night. Ibach also spoke
about how SleepIQ technology helped her late husband during his
fight with cancer, and how it may be used in the future to predict
health issues such as sleep apnea or cardiac events.

 

● A multi-year award winner for its CES booths, Sleep Number’s
multi-level brand experience brought to life the importance of
better quality sleep. On the first floor, the company featured a
multi-user “Sleep Number Quarterback Challenge,” a virtual reality
simulation that illustrates the impact of sleep on physical
performance. In less than 90 seconds, players could see and feel
the difference that quality sleep can make on performance. On the
second floor, a new 360 smart bed “ride” took groups of people
through a three-minute immersive ‘planetarium-style’ experience
into the science behind the 360 smart bed. Visitors were able to
see, hear and feel the bed intuitively sensing and automatically
adjusting under the largest horizontal LED screen at CES.
