The CoolDrift, wearable sleep technology, uses continuous cooling applied to the wearer’s forehead to help them maintain an optimal temperature for getting to sleep.
Insomnia can have a massive impact on someone’s short-term and long-term wellness. Sleep deprivation can be extremely frustrating for the sufferer who has to cope with mood changes, weight gain, fatigue, and a compromised immune system. The root cause of insomnia can be a long list of things such as stress, mental illness, or lifestyle factors.
Traditionally, sedative sleeping aid medications are prescribed to help the patient get to sleep and stay asleep for a reasonable amount of time. They often aren’t the best choice for many and come with drawbacks, including side effects or addiction. More people are turning to natural sleep aids to manage their insomnia, and tech startups are making them more accessible.
Sleep apps are now a common aid for improving sleep, and more sleep trackers are hitting the market, such as Beddr. Ebb Sleep is another startup pushing sleep technology forward with its CoolDrift wearable device.
CoolDrift, is a headband worn across the forehead that delivers continuous cool temperatures to the wearer. Its algorithm ensures the device stays at an optimal temperature for the wearer to maintain quality sleep. The theory behind the product is that the cooling effect reduces brain activity. This reduces the feeling of fast-moving thoughts and calms the person for sleep.
It’s a drug-free, easy-to-use alternative to traditional sleep aids. Clinical studies have shown a reduction in the time taken to fall asleep after using the wearable sleep aid for a month. Two versions are available depending on the user’s needs. The CoolDrift Versa is a portable version designed for use while travelling or using around the home before bed. The CoolDrift Luxe is for people who want continuous cooling all night long.
