Our goal is not to build the best mattresses in the world, our goal is to improve sleep"CEO & Founder Dr. Dennis Schmoltzi
Emma has now revealed a new smart mattress called the Emma Motion or as they call it the worlds most advanced mattress. This mattress is engineered to challenge the status quo and bring a personalised experience by adapting to your sleeping preferences.
It will first be launched in the Dutch and French market but we will be sure to keep you updated as to when it will be here in the UK.
Emma Motion Mattress Construction
The Emma team has dedicated over 2 years in developing a mattress that works while you sleep and is made and designed in Germany.
The Emma Motion is designed to register how the sleeper is positioned and respond in a way to ultimately always make sure that your spine is correctly aligned. This is particularly interesting for complex sleepers who frequently change sleeping positions throughout the night.
The Emma Motion Mattress is currently made of:
- A cover (predominantly polyester with some polypropylene)
- Diamond degree technology foam and viscoelastic foam
- Infinite AI Sensor Mat
- Motion fields inside an HRX foam
How The Emma Motion Mattress Layers Work
The top Proven Diamond degree technology foam includes millions of heat conducting graphite particles (graphite is slowly becoming popular is some of the mattresses in the UK market) this is designed to regulate the sleeping climate by dissipating excess body heat.
The Infinite AI Sensor Mat, just below the top comfort foam layers is made from a dense grip of sensors (some say a network of 360 sensors) which can detect the slightest pressure movements. As your body moves during sleep these sensors analyse and process the data in realtime and with the help of AI it can translate the data into your current sleeping position.
In order to achieve these results Emma has programmed a neural networks with several terabytes of data which help ensure that the recordings are as accurate as possible.
The next move would be that the Silent Move IQ technology interprets this data and transmits it to the dual motion fields which then adjust. These fields are strategically placed at the shoulder and hip area to help ensure the correct spinal alignment. This will then either relieve pressure or add support depending on your sleeping position. This is designed to be done both smoothly and silently which we can image to be an extremely difficult task.
This is the gist on how the Emma Motion is engineered to work but we will have to see the true results once it hits the market.
To add to this mattress, Emma will also come out with the Emma Motion Control App which is designed to give the user customisability. It allows the sleeper to adjust the settings to the right degree you find comfortable. These settings will be remembered (sort of like with the seats of fancy cars) and executed night after night.
