Catching up on your beauty sleep is an essential part of keeping up with day-to-day life in our highly globalized world. However, many suffer from insomnia and sleep disorders, which is why the ReST bed is something of a revelation these days. It’s actually a smart mattress that lets you customize your sleeping arrangements for optimal comfort. The basic gist of its technology is that it automatically adjusts the positioning of the mattress by sensing how you’re lying on it (on your back, on your side, etc.). This shape and pressure profile – better known as sleep data – are stored and updated for the best real-time adjustments.
