According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, as many as 70 million
Americans are affected by chronic sleep loss or sleep disorders, resulting in $50
billion in lost productivity. Sleep is essential for both maintaining good health
and enabling people to function at their highest level.
The National Sleep Foundation points out that in general, most scientists believe
that a person's sleep environment can be a major contributor to insomnia. The sleep
environment takes into account sound (noise levels), light, current mattress condition,
Four years ago, the world's leading thermoelectric developer brought forward the
idea of a climate controlled sleep system. With over 10 years of thermoelectric
development and manufacturing experience under their belt, and a highly successful
Climate Control Seat system (prominently used in luxury vehicles) already in the
market place, it seemed only natural to apply their technology to help solve a
prevalent sleep issue- insomnia as a result of temperature.
This endeavor resulted in the creation of Micro-Climate Solutions, Inc., whose single
purpose was to bring a climate controlled sleep system to market. Micro-Climate
Solutions partnered with Mattress Firm, one of North America's largest bedding retailers,
and Sleep Inc., a luxury bedding manufacturer to complete the project.
After 4 years of research and development, Mattress Firm is proud to present YūMē™,
designed to provide individual, year-round comfort through temperature control,
luxurious comfort, and exceptional support.
