At Sleep Junkie, we take a comprehensive approach to testing and reviewing the majority of our sleep products, ensuring that our readers receive the most accurate and up-to-date information.
Our product methodology includes the following steps:
- Why You Should Trust Us: Our team consists of seasoned sleep experts with years of experience researching, testing, and evaluating sleep products. Our testers represent a diverse range of body types, sleep positions, and personal preferences, ensuring that our ratings and recommendations are inclusive of all sleepers.
- Hands-On Research: Our hands-on research integrates a multitude of individual tests, allowing us to gain a holistic view of each product we evaluate. We physically test mattresses by lying down on them, getting on and off of them, and sitting along their edges.
- Our Product Testers: Our diverse testing team is made up of side, back, stomach, and combination sleepers with a wide range of body types, ensuring our ratings and recommendations cater to all sleepers regardless of their weight or sleep position.
- Motion Isolation: Our testers assess motion isolation by having one person lie on one side of the mattress while another person moves around on the other side. The team’s experience and diversity ensure we obtain reliable results from this testing approach.
- Temperature Neutrality: Our team evaluates temperature neutrality by considering how the mattress feels during a normal night’s sleep and examining the materials and construction of the mattress to determine how they promote airflow and dissipate heat.
- Expert and User Comments: We incorporate comments from product testers, brand reviews, medical experts, influencers, and users, offering a well-rounded view of each product and helping readers make more informed decisions.
- Expert Review Board Validation: Our Expert Review Board reviews the test results to ensure accuracy and relevancy to the latest sleep information.
- Comparative Analysis: We compare the test results of the reviewed products with their competitors, highlighting unique features and aspects that set them apart.
- Updates and Re-testing: We periodically update the reviews and re-test products if there are significant changes in the product design, features, or if new models are released, ensuring that the information provided remains up-to-date and relevant.
- Continuous Improvement: We periodically review and update our testing methodology to stay current with industry trends, emerging technologies, and consumer preferences.
- Data Analysis: We combine testers’ feedback with industry trends, search engine data, and technical information from government, academia, and industry sources. We use this data to identify patterns and inform future tests.
By following this detailed and thorough process, Sleep Junkie aims to provide our readers with reliable and trustworthy product reviews to help them make informed decisions when it comes to their sleep needs.
