Tempur Sealy Research Grant

THE FOUNDATION is very excited to issue this Research Grant Call for Submission on a sleep study for the largest Manufacturer of Mattresses worldwide, Tempur-Sealy. We have proposed to do this one year study or studies in order to conduct research within the Royal College of Chiropractic Sports Sciences (Canada) related to sleep, musculoskeletal disorders and athletes. This research grant is open to any Members of the RCCSS(C).

Sleep has important implications to the health of all Canadians. There is a paucity of scientific evidence on sleep products, sleep hygiene and how they may impact athletes and their performance. Sports specialist chiropractors work specifically with athletes (professional, Olympic, and recreational) to improve their health, facilitate their recovery, and improve their athletic performance. Recently, the importance of sleep on athletic performance and its impact on recovery are timely topics of scientific inquiry.
