Kinetic PT - July 2019

Everyone with a smartphone has heard time and time again that looking at your phone before bed is a bad idea. According to the National Sleep Foundation, “The use of electronic devices in the bedroom further disrupts the natural pattern of the sleep-wake cycle” primarily because of the blue light emitted from the screen. While most scientific data pertaining to sleep recommends you place your phone in another room overnight, those who toss and turn regardless of phone location might benefit from using technology rather than tucking it away. Here are three FREE sleep apps that might help you get to dreamland faster. PZIZZ While there are many apps that claim to help people fall asleep quicker, very few are programmed to prevent sleepers from growing bored of the same monotonous soundtracks. Pzizz combines music, sound effects, and binaural beats, and an embedded algorithm generates a slightly different track each time you use it. SNORE REPORT Many troubled sleepers who are able to fall asleep are jolted awake shortly afterward. The inability to stay asleep throughout the night can stem from a multitude of factors, but snoring

tends to be the most common. The Snore Report app records through the night to detect any snoring sounds and then provides the user with an overview of the previous night’s recording, including an index to determine snore intensity. Using this app might not help you fall asleep faster, but it could offer helpful information about why you aren’t able to stay asleep. SLEEP CYCLE ALARM CLOCK Instead of setting an alarm to jolt you out of sleep at a specific time, choose a window of time to wake up with the Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock. The app will sense your sleep movements and ring an alarm when you’re in the lightest stage of sleep. This way, you’ll wake at the optimal time, feeling refreshed rather than groggy.

“I am so grateful for Kinetic and their staff, but I’m especially grateful for Amanda. This young lady has the ability to move you to greater heights than you think possible.

“Having fun and getting healthy describes my experience with all the staff at Kinetic. I’ve been greeted each time with smiling faces which helps with recovery. I truly thought I would never use my right hand

Approximately three months ago, I had a total knee replacement at the age of 91, and that isn’t easy. Amanda worked hard, and through her caring guidance and expertise, and my determination, I am walking and about to run. Amanda, I will be forever grateful. Thank you.” – Christine Masur

this well after such a short time. I couldn’t even sign my name on my first visit, and now here I am writing my story. Thank you so very much! Big hugs to all, especially Amanda.” –Rosemarie Beu
