Better sleep, naturally

As the leader in tech wellness, Therabody is committed to conducting scientific research to develop products that support a better quality of life. Getting a good night's sleep is a global issue¹, and because sleep is the foundation of optimal health, we started here.

THE PROBLEM

Up to 45% of the world’s population has a sleep disorder.¹

The wellness industry is saturated with products claiming to improve sleep, but few have proven effectiveness, so, we got creative to find out what we could do to help solve for this growing issue.

THE STUDY

How a consistent Theragun routine affects sleep and other biometrics.

In partnership with Therabody, Biostrap Labs evaluated how a consistent Theragun routine affects sleep. Participants followed Theragun Recovery and Sleep protocols while wearing a Biostrap wrist sensor to provide data on their recovery and sleep.

73 healthy participants

A sample of 18-40 year olds who exercised a minimum of 3x a week for more than 30 minutes.

5-week study length

Evaluated Theragun Sleep and Recovery protocols using the clinically validated Biostrap biosensor wearable technology and validated surveys to gather data.

Free-living design

Monitored 2 weeks without Theragun protocols, 2 weeks with protocols, and 1 week return to normal lifestyle. Participants were told not to change any other parts of their lifestyle.

THE RESULTS

Biostrap Labs scientists found that a majority of participants’ sleep improved upon completing the Theragun protocols 30 minutes before bed, with benefits maintained one week after discontinued use. Statistically significant results included:

White background

100% of participants
reported improvements in overall quality of life

White background

56% of participants

WHY BIOSTRAP LABS

Real solutions. Real science.

In any study, data integrity is critical. Biostrap's wrist-worn sensor is designed for clinical research, capturing high-fidelity biometric data including heartbeats analyzed for 29 unique parameters to provide objective insights on sleep, health, performance, and recovery.

Additionally, Biostrap is referenced in 14 publications and has 22 clinical studies validating its biometric measurements against gold standard medical diagnostics and use cases in specific medical conditions.
