According to the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention
, one-third of U.S. adults
reported receiving less than the recommended amount of sleep. The National
Sleep Foundation
reported that two-thirds of the workforce
experiences suboptimal sleep at least a few times a week. To help people
achieve a better night's sleep, SleepScore Labs tests sleep technology,
products, and services in real-world conditions to help consumers find
effective solutions catered towards their specific sleep needs.

"Evening exposure to regular LED light, which contains a high amount of
the blue spectrum, is capable of disrupting sleep by minimizing the
melatonin secretion that naturally occurs in the evening and helps you
sleep," said Roy Raymann, Ph.D., Vice President of Sleep Science and
Scientific Affairs, SleepScore Labs. "The Good Night® LED
Sleep-Enhancing Light minimizes the amount of blue light spectrum
emitted and therefore helps prevent blue light-induced decreases in
melatonin secretion in the evening. This might help people fall asleep
easier and maintain a regular sleep schedule, which is key to good
sleep."

SleepScore Labs is backed by over 12 years of comprehensive research and
development, including more than six million nights of objective sleep
data. SleepScore Labs' sleep measurement technology, powered by ResMed,
has extensively been validated against polysomnography (PSG) – the gold
standard in sleep measurement.

"We are always encouraged when results validate the benefits of creative
sleep solutions like the Good Night® LED Sleep-Enhancing Lights, as they
demonstrate the value of our unique ecosystem and provide an expanded
selection of effective sleep aid options to consumers," said Colin
Lawlor, CEO, SleepScore Labs. "As our user base continues to grow, so
will our technological advantage in using big data to advance the
science of sleep."

The Good Night®️ LED Sleep-Enhancing Lights were tested over 1,750
nights of tracked sleep with multiple users and were found to benefit
several key aspects of perceived and objective sleep. The study garnered
the following results:

  • Over half of users reported better sleep in general.
  • Over half of users reported shorter time to fall asleep.
  • Half of users felt more rested when waking up the next day.
  • 90 percent reported they would continue using the lights after the
    study concluded.

"Inclusion in SleepScore Labs' validation study program provides a great
opportunity for us to build more proof points around our products, as
well as identify new customers to reap the benefits of these products,"
said Fred Maxik, founder, Lighting Science Group. "The simple fact is
that regular use of our specialty spectrum lighting helps people achieve
better sleep, ultimately leading to better health."

Lighting Science Group also offers the companion Good Night®️ Bedside
Table Lamp through the SleepScore Labs website to further support a
natural sleep cycle and improve overall the quality and duration of
sleep.
