Newton, Mass. (PRWEB) November 15, 2010
Specialty retailer Brookstone is adding the Zeo Personal Sleep Coach to its full line of sleep solutions – which ranges from pillows to sound machines – to ensure a more restful night’s sleep. The evidence is overwhelming that Americans do not sleep enough; now for the first time, there is a product to track and improve the length and quality of a night’s sleep. The Zeo Personal Sleep Coach is the world’s first science-based solution designed to help consumers understand how well they sleep and teach new ways to achieve a better night’s rest.
The National Institutes of Health recommends that healthy adults sleep seven to nine hours every night, yet one in three Americans report they regularly sleep 6.5 hours or fewer. This nationwide trend of sleep deprivation has spurred a need for new products that help consumers understand and improve the quality of their sleep.
“Our customers understand the numerous benefits of getting a good night’s rest, which is why we carry a dedicated line of sleep products,” said Brookstone CEO Ron Boire. “We are excited to debut the Zeo Personal Sleep Coach in our stores because it is the only product that provides both personal sleep information and effective tools to help improve sleep.”
Developed in collaboration with leading sleep scientists, Zeo is a two-part system that tracks sleep through a lightweight headband and bedside display, and analyzes the data through an interactive website and coaching service.
“Sleep is a fundamental necessity of overall health and wellness and Zeo is the only product that can provide in-home information on the quality of sleep,” said David Dickinson, president and CEO of Zeo Inc. “We are thrilled to partner with Brookstone because they are a leader in bringing innovative technologies to the customer and have a true passion for providing excellent sleep solutions.”
The Zeo Personal Sleep Coach is now available at select Brookstone stores throughout the U.S., in Brookstone catalogs, and online at http://www.brookstone.com, among other retail and online destinations.
