"Smart Mattress Company Collaborates with Mount Sinai on Sleep Sensor Validation Study"
New York City-based smart mattress company Eight is launching a high-tech sensor validation study in collaboration with David Rapoport, MD, professor of medicine, pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and director of the sleep medicine research program at Mount Sinai. The study will use devices found at the sleep center to measure sensor accuracy in Eight’s Smart Mattress product, which uses built-in high-tech sensors to track biometrics during sleep. Dr. Rapoport said, “I was interested in studying Eight’s sleep tracking technology because of the implications it can have in how sleep research is conducted.”
