Sleepme’s founders have bed tech in their heritage; president Todd Youngblood’s uncle invented the waterbed. The company’s app—controlled Dock Pro system also uses water, but in a very different way: continuously circulating water in a mattress pad to keep your bed at precise desired temperatures, triggering sleep and wake cues. “In an ideal world, you want to drop 2° in core body temperature to facilitate good sleep,” CEO Tara Youngblood says. A peer-reviewed study published this year also showed the tech effective at reducing menopausal hot flashes. The pad is available for one or two sleepers (the latter has two separate climates).
