We investigated the most effective rocking motion for inducing sleep in adults. We prepared ten types of rocking motions, including two types of mother’s rocking motions. The sleep-inducing effect of all the rocking motions was evaluated using Thurstone’s paired comparison method (Case V). From statistical analysis of the subjective experimental results we found that, of the ten types of rocking motions, the linear motion component of a mother’s rocking motions (Type 2) was the most effective for inducing sleep in adults.
