How to make a healthy bed
CNN's Senior Medical Correspondent, Elizabeth Cohen, visited Purdue's Herrick Labs in April to film a segment about the indoor air quality of bedding materials with Assistant Professor Brandon Boor.
For the CNN story, Prof. Boor re-created an experiment that measures the amount of particulates that are aerosolized when we toss and turn in bed. In Herrick Labs' Perception-Based Engineering lab, Elizabeth Cohen tossed and turned in a bed, while Prof. Boor monitored the particles that were suspended into the air. He then offered some advice for people who want to keep their beds and bedding materials as clean as possible.
