Setting Sleep Standards

NSF and the Consumer Technology Association™ (CTA), an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) accredited standards developer, partner to develop technology performance and measurement standards that inform the development of consumer sleep technology.

Conducting Custom Research

Want to know more about your consumers’ thoughts on SleepTech? Do you have a technology product you want to test in the lab or home environment?

NSF designs, executes, and analyzes custom research studies for organizations that want to know more about the public’s sleep. Using NSF’s validated, proprietary tools and survey instruments, NSF conducts US-based and global research to gather consumer insights about sleep & technology, and to evaluate SleepTech performance. NSF uses our HIPAA-compliant SleepLife® platform and mobile application to build a custom platform for data collection and analysis and to integrate with wearables or other devices. 

As the leading independent source of information on the public’s sleep health, NSF’s research results and insights have broad reach and impact. In fact, study results have been used in multiple global markets.
