The Motion Pillow, an anti-snore pillow, has been featured as a CES Innovation Awards 2023 honoree. The Motion Pillow is made by the South Korean-based company 10 Minds. The CES Innovation Awards feature many products that range from robotics, medical technology, and of course, an anti-snoring pillow.
This marks the third time that the Motion Pillow has been a CES Innovation Awards honoree, having earned it in 2020, 2022, and now 2023. The Motion Pillow is a two-part pillow: the pillow itself and the Motion System. This piece of technology is able to detect when you start snoring. When you start snoring, the Motion System will automatically send a signal to the pillow to inflate airbags within it. This adjusts your head’s position and will stop the snoring.
According to 10 Minds, in a clinical trial, over 90% of users showed or experienced a reduction in snoring while using the Motion Pillow. Snoring is caused by the narrowing of your airway, and is affected by a variety of things, such as head position.
The Motion System is set up by learning the sounds of the user’s snoring during a brief learning period. Once the Motion System learns the sound of the user’s snoring, it will send a signal to adjust the pillow when snoring occurs. This is particularly impressive, because even if one shares a bed with a partner, the Motion System is uniquely tuned to the user. So even if the user’s partner is snoring, the pillow won’t won’t mistake that and inflate when the user isn’t snoring.
