Methodology of Measurements for Features in Sleep Tracking Consumer Technology Devices and Applications (ANSI/CTA/NSF-2052.2)
Sleep is very important. Good, quality sleep supports healthy brain function and contributes to healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels. It also protects your mental and physical health. Ongoing sleep deficiency can lead to chronic health problems, and can affect how well you think, react, work, learn, and get along with others. Because sleep is so important, consumer technology companies have developed a range of products to help you determine how much sleep you’re getting, and the quality of that sleep. This standard is one of several standards that, together, help companies determine how the accuracy of their consumer sleep products. through providing a high-level discussion of how various components of the sleep process can be recognized and measured. It’s a precursor to ANSI/CTA/NSF-2052.3, which describes how to determine a consumer device’s effectiveness at recognizing or measuring these components.
