Some common insomnia related researches are listed below:

Insomnia and Sleep technology test

Sleep technology test is a new invention in the area to improve sleep disturbances or chronic insomnia. Scientists believe and have shown evidence through studies that this test is helpful in treating insomnia by measuring and improving the timing, quantity and quality of sleep. It is helpful in tracking the frequency of sleep. Several renowned scientists have also stated that this test helps to detect sleep patterns of an insomniac in different progressive weeks and then treatment is given accordingly to improve the sleep. The test is also known as the S+ technology.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Insomnia (TMSI)

Multiple pieces of research are conducted to treat insomnia. An on-going research, known as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), is helpful in detecting possible ways to manage insomnia. TMS is supposed to reduce depression and is a brain stimulation technique. In this technique, evaluating insomnia and brain dysfunctioning is an important aspect. Trails are being conducted associated with this study to get a positive long-term outcome.

Recent drug-related studies to improve the health of insomniacs

A study revealed that a drug APD125 is given to insomniacs to reduce sleep disturbances. Another drug Suvorexant is, especially, given to treat insomnia in patients who are already suffering from Parkinson’s disease. A clinical trial of 20 Parkinson's disease with insomnia patients was helpful in studying the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of Suvorexant.

Another proven trial is the study of the effect of E2006 drug in insomniacs. Double dosage of this drug is given to the insomniacs in a randomized manner to evaluate its effect and look for future results.  Another trail shows positive effects of Ramelteon- with or without Multi-Component Behavioral Therapy on sleep. Several other types of research on drugs are conducted to reduce the effects or symptoms of insomnia.

Marketing evolution for insomnia therapeutics

A new market study for insomnia therapeutics released for 2017-2025 includes all the validated industrial data and complete estimation of what holds in the market, what are current growth factors, considerate opinions, facts, etc. It also foresees the future trends that build up the market on insomnia therapeutics.

The main features of this market study are that the companies involved in building up the market and this study depends on the area where the business needs to be extended, possibility of market breakdown, competition analysis, etc.

Another study, which relates to how the market works, segregates the marketing strategies into pharmacological and non-pharmacological types. According to this classification, the market structure and scenario is built accordingly. By studying or evaluating statistical data and regional analysis, growth in market due to insomnia can be easily predicted.

Does yoga and acupressure help in reducing the effects of insomnia?

Recent studies and experiences shared by people have gained some light that relaxation techniques are efficient in treating insomnia. Yoga includes physical exercises, several breathing techniques, and meditations for better health and social well being.
