Philips Showcases Breathing and Light Therapy Innovations to Improve Sleep Quality at IFA

At this year's Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA), taking place in Berlin, Germany from September 2-7, Royal Philips is presenting innovations that empower people to live healthier lives across the health continuum, from prevention, to diagnosis, to treatment. During this year's show, Philips will highlight its vision for transforming the future of sleep. With more patients seeking medical care for sleep disorders1, the world is waking up to the challenge of healthy sleep, its impact on overall health and the need for a good night's rest.

During IFA, Philips will present innovations that help people get the rest they deserve, including the Dream Family solution designed to improve the sleep therapy experience for people with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). More than 100 million people worldwide2 are estimated to have OSA, a serious condition that is treated with positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy. The Dream Family, comprised of the DreamWear mask, DreamStation PAP device and DreamMapper patient engagement app, is designed to engage sleep apnea patients with one of the most comfortable and effective therapies available. With the most comprehensive suite of connectivity options among all PAP therapy systems, Dream Family works as a connected solution to keep patients engaged in their therapy and linked to their care teams.

The components of the Dream Family were inspired by feedback from more than 900 patients, as well as insights from clinicians who treat sleep apnea. This input, combined with Philips' more than four decades of experience developing revolutionary patient-centric solutions, led to the award-winning design of the Dream Family. Since their launch in October 2015, DreamWear and DreamStation have been honored for excellence in design, including recent iF Design, Red Dot, Good Design Australia and Core77 accolades.

"Sleep therapy can be challenging, and our goal is to help people across the globe get a better night's rest – whether they live with a chronic sleep condition or are struggling to achieve eight hours a night," said John Frank, CEO, Sleep and Respiratory Care, Philips. "Next to nutrition and exercise, sleep is the third pillar of health and now we are looking to the future for all people who need help with improving their sleep quality. We intend to make good sleep possible for everyone."

In addition to the Dream Family, Philips will be showcasing two light therapy solutions designed to improve the experience of getting out of bed. These include:

·         EnergyUp Energy Lights: Philips' EnergyUp lights help combat energy dips caused by jet lag, long hours inside an office or general fatigue. The EnergyUp Natural White light mimics the natural energizing power of daylight, and is clinically proven to increase energy levels and mood to help users stay sharp3. With its highly portable design, the EnergyUp Intense Blue light is easy for people to use when traveling or at the office, the environments where people are most likely to experience fatigue.

·         Wake-up Light: Inspired by nature's sunrise, the Philips Wake-up Light creates a gentle, refreshing wake-up experience to wake the user up gradually. It is clinically proven to provide a more energetic wake-up in the morning4, and provides a relaxed, easy wake-up and reduces sleepiness after waking up. Available in a variety of options and price points, the technology allows users to simulate the sunrise and choose the preferred sound for their wake-up.
