Abstract

Many people in our modern day society face the reoccurring issue of waking up multiple times throughout the morning either by setting multiple alarms, snoozing an already set alarm, or by not getting out of bed. This process, also known as sleep fragmentation, has countless negative effects on a person’s life. These effects include disrupting your sleep inertia, feelings of grogginess, and general discontent throughout the day. If persistent, sleep fragmentation can lead to health issues including obesity, depression, and heart disease. The Pressure Alarm is an alarm that solves this problem by requiring the user to get out of his/her bed and stay out of it for an extended period of time. This prevents further sleep because the user audibly hears the alarm in bed and is required to perform physical activity which will wake them up. Alongside of this, the user cannot go back to bed without hearing the alarm once more, keeping the user awake and ready for their day.
