Every month, the Wake Up! newsletter brings you latest on sleep health, sleep tips, sleep industry research and sleep product insign.
We are still receiving interviews and articles from the Court's launch in Singapore.
Sales sleep in-services have continued the past month. We've performed some polysomnograms (sleep study) on a couple volunteers and we have 2-3 more expected over the next month. It's been great for us to be able to spend some time with associates from both within the company and our clients. We truly enjoy being able to help everyone improve upon what they are already leading the industry in... bringing sleep science, health and wellness to the masses on the floors. Thanks to all of you that have taken the time to share your experiences with us.
Recruitment for Group 2 of the Low-Back Pain study has begun and we are starting to get data crunched on the first group. We hope to be able to get a preliminary idea of how the data is progressing in the coming month; however, it won't be reportable until we've finished the next groups' studies. Group 1 is anxious to finish up and most have expressed how interesting the experience has been. They're excited themselves to see how they have done on each surface; although, they have some idea already and most feel they can narrow their "favorite" surface for improved pain and sleep to a couple mattresses.
It's been just over a year since we reported on the Don't Let the Bed Bugs Act of 2009. New York City is starting to give the pests some additional attention as a study showed that 1 and 15 New Yorkers battled the bugs last year. Spikes in infestations have been seen across the nation, with New York City reporting 20 times the number last year compared to 2004.1
"The bed is a bundle of paradoxes: we go to it with reluctance, yet we quit it with regret; we make up our minds every night to leave it early, but we make up our bodies every morning to keep it late." - Charles Caleb Colton
