Do Restless Legs Mean Restless Nights?: A Study by the Eight Sleep Lab

Eight is committed to understanding and optimizing sleep through technology. With over 20,000 Americans sleeping on our smart mattress, we’re re-thinking how sleep research is done and finding new ways to leverage data to drive meaningful insights.

About the study: Users who sleep on an Eight Smart Mattress were invited to opt in to participate in a study about how RLS effects sleep.
