Project Details

Description

The objective of the project was to investigate the effect of ventilation on sleep quality and next-day well-being. The uniqueness of the study was that the subjects slept in their own beds. The results show positive effects of a higher ventilation rate on the subjectively assessed freshness of the air, on the subjects’ mental state and their feeling of being rested. There was also a positive effect on performance and on sleep efficiency measured by actigraphs. It is the first time that it has been proved that higher air quality has a positive effect on sleep and next-day performance.
