SleepScore Labs built its unique ecosystem of sleep products and
services to help consumers find effective sleep solutions based on their
own specific sleep patterns. Following a rigorous evaluation and testing
process, SleepScore Labs data found that Swannies Blue Light Blocking
Glasses – when worn when looking at electronic devices before bed –
improved sleep by filtering out the blue wavelengths from laptops,
tablets, and energy-efficient light bulbs that can interfere with sleep.
After using Swannies glasses in the evening, users fell asleep faster,
slept deeper, and felt more rested the following morning.

"SleepScore Labs' ecosystem is advancing the science of sleep health by
validating the efficacy of sleep-related products. In a market crowded
with options, product validation is an essential part of our mission to
help people sleep, feel and live better," said Colin Lawlor, CEO of
SleepScore Labs. "Our large and rapidly growing user base contributes
helpful insights that are in turn leveraged to evaluate whether or not a
sleep product is useful in supporting a better night's sleep."

Validated products and services within the SleepScore Labs ecosystem are
scientifically evaluated and tested using SleepScore by ResMed
technology. SleepScore Labs is backed by over 12 years of comprehensive
research and development, including more than six million nights of
objective sleep data with results extensively validated against
polysomnography (PSG) – the gold standard in sleep measurement.

"According to the CDC,
one-third of U.S. adults report that they usually get less than the
recommended amount of sleep and the NSF reports that two-thirds of the
workforce experience suboptimal sleep at least a few times a week," said
Roy Raymann, Ph.D., vice president of sleep science and scientific
affairs at SleepScore Labs. "Nighttime light exposure, especially to
so-called ‘cool white' light, which is very prominent in LED lighting,
is likely to contribute to these numbers. LED lights at home and the use
of mobile devices with LED screens during the evening are very common
nowadays – and using blue light blocking glasses can help to counteract
the sleep-disturbing effects."

Swannies Blue Light Blocking Glasses were tested over a period of more
than 600 nights of tracked sleep with multiple users and were found to
produce statistically significant improvements in several aspects of
perceived and objective sleep. For the nights that the study
participants wore Swannies glasses in their homes before bed, the
following benefits were observed:

  • Deeper sleep: Sleep measurements showed a 7 percent increase in the
    amount of deep sleep.
  • Better sleep: 73 percent of users felt Swannies improved their sleep,
    with a 37 percent improvement in feeling more rested in the morning.
    Data also showed that subjects were awake during the night for 24
    fewer minutes on average.
  • Falling asleep faster: Respondents reported falling asleep 11 minutes
    faster on average, with a higher feeling of sleepiness at bedtime (33
    percent improvement).

"The SleepScore Labs ecosystem enlists a powerful process to validate
the benefits of using Swannies to improve sleep quality and combat
sleepiness in the evening," said James Swanwick, co-founder of Swanwick
Sleep. "The data speaks for itself – people are falling asleep faster
and sleeping deeper after wearing Swannies in the evening before bed."
