ReST Bed™: the only truly smart bed

(ATLANTA, GA — July 5, 2017) – Sleep technology innovator, Responsive Surface Technology, LLC (“ReST”) has partnered with Matt Hanson, who holds the record for the fastest-ever Ironman time by an American. As part of his training and recovery, Matt sleeps on a ReST Bed™ which was designed to help athletes sleep better and recover faster.

In his first year as a pro, Matt set three course run records and was the 2014 Ironman Chattanooga champion.  In 2015, he was crowned North American Champion with his win at Ironman Texas where he set the overall course record. After winning Ironman 70.3 Cartagena in 2016, Matt has already won Ironman Texas and Ironman 70.3 Coeur d’Alene in 2017.

“Matt has quickly established himself as a superstar triathlete,” says Lloyd Sommers, General Manager of ReST. “As a former professor of Exercise Science, Matt fully appreciates the role sleep plays in recovery. We’re proud that he credits the ReST Bed™ with improving both the quantity and quality of his sleep.”

ReST has created the only truly smart bed – winner of “Innovation” and “People’s Choice” awards at CES, the world’s most important consumer electronics show. The ReST Bed™ promotes better circulation, which increases the amount of oxygen muscles can receive. The sleeper can customize pressure-relieving adjustments to the parts of the body that need them most that night.

Additionally, the ReST Bed’s™ patented fabric senses the sleeper’s unique shape and pressure profile – and then uses that data to ensure that the surface automatically responds to improve spinal alignment and head-to-toe back support.

“Recovery is one of the most important aspects of training.  And the number one element of recovery is sleep,” says Hanson. “Prior to sleeping on a ReST Bed™, after long training days, I was often unable to sleep because I was sore and couldn’t get comfortable.  This negatively impacted the next day’s workout. Because the ReST Bed™ has technology that allows it to automatically adjust to my body’s needs, I now fall asleep quickly, which means I’m getting eight hours of high-quality sleep. Being well-rested has even had a positive impact on my nutrition: I have reduced my coffee intake…which means I sleep better the next night – a virtuous cycle. I recommend the ReST Bed™ to all the athletes I coach.”
