New Airsleep App Turns iOS Devices into an In-Flight Sleep System Using Patented Dreamwave Brainwave Technology
Free
for a limited time, new app activates delta waves to guide travelers
into a deep and satisfying sleep that can be customized to a trip’s
length

Miami, Fla. – July 31, 2013 – Airsleep,
a new sleep aid app specifically designed with the traveler in mind,
instantly turns your iPhone, iPod or iPad into an in-flight sleep system
that gently guides you into a deep sleep using patented Dreamwave
Brainwave technology. The technology is based in the latest brainwave
science that blends ambient sounds with low tones to activate delta
waves, the low frequency brainwaves of 4 Hz and below that the brain
produces when in the deepest stages of sleep. The app allows travelers
to customize their sleep to their mood and length of travel. The Airsleep
app is compatible with iOS 5.0 or later and is available for download
at the iTunes store for free now through Dec. 31, 2013. It comes
preloaded with three different calming sounds, all backed with Dreamwave
Brainwave technology that activates the delta waves present during
restful and restorative slow-wave sleep.

Thoughts => Does it work? Hard to tell. In my brief tests
at home it did feel soothing, but I am not sure if it will keep me
asleep on an airplane or on a car road trip. I’ll try and test it out
some more and give some feedback. The technology sounds interesting and
plausible. 

Slow-wave
sleep plays an important role in sleep as one of its most restful and
restorative phases; without it, travelers can quickly become fatigued. Studies
of how travel affects sleep reveal that travelers on trips crossing
more than two time zones that last two to four days registered a total
sleep loss of almost eight hours by the time they returned home, the
equivalent of one full night’s sleep. Airsleep’s Dreamwave Brainwave
technology activates delta waves to alter brainwave patterns in a
natural, healthy way to achieve a deeper level of relaxation and sleep
that many travelers go without.

Since the human ear can’t hear a 4
Hz tone, Airsleep activates delta waves using binaural beats. Airsleep
achieves this by playing two slightly different audio tones that are fed
to the brain via stereo headphones; one tone is panned hard left, the
other hard right. For example, Airsleep can create a 4 Hz delta wave
tone by setting the left tone at 100 Hz and the right at 104 Hz. Played
together, the tones sound like a single, low, monotone and slightly
out-of-phase hum. These frequencies are so close together the brain
identifies the difference as a single 4 Hz delta wave. The Airsleep app
allows users to adjust this ratio, based on length of travel, to create a
variety of low Hz tones. Airsleep also designed the brainwave tone to
mix with other calming sounds of nature and ambient music.

After
takeoff, Airsleep gets to work. Once the flight crew gives permission to
turn on your electronic devices, log into your downloaded Airsleep app
and tap “Depart Now” to start your sleep system.
Choose from three
preloaded calming and ambient sounds, Rainy Day, Beach Sleep and Desert
Wind, or browse from the Airsleep library of sound banks available for
purchase ($0.99, each bank comes with three unique sounds). Airsleep
provides full functionality of all free and pre-purchased tracks offline
while in airplane mode.

The
pre-set sounds are designed for both pleasant listening and highly
effective relaxation or sleep. Users who want to explore delta waves
more deeply have the option of listening to only the brainwave audio and
can change the preset mixes by opting for the Control Freak upgrade,
which lets travelers customize any Airsleep sound on their device to
their preferences.

Once your sound is selected, move the duration
bar slider knob to adjust the amount of time you’d like to sleep. Users
can adjust the time anywhere from one minute to 10 hours to match trip
length down to the minute. The shorter the trip, the faster Airsleep’s
Dreamwave Brainwave technology will bring users into a deep sleep,
providing passengers with the option of a quick power nap or a full
evening’s rest, perfect for overseas flights. Once the program is set,
users simply close their eyes as they wait to drift off to sleep. The
sleep system will play uninterrupted until you schedule it to stop. When
it’s time to wake up, Airsleep offers wake chimes options that include
harps, bells, chimes, xylophone or a gong to lift users out of their
sleep, leaving travelers well rested as they arrive at their
destination.
