For optimal health, it’s recommended that you get at least 8 hours of sleep every night. However, many of us fail to achieve a good night’s sleep almost every night. Several factors may affect your sleep quality, such as snoring, insomnia, and body position to name a few. But how do you know which factors are affecting your sleep and how can you prevent those in order to get a quality sleep? Not to worry. Colorado-based startup SomnoHealth aims to help you get at the bottom of what’s keeping you up at night with its EverSleep sleep tracker.
Eversleep is a wearable sleep tracker that you wear around your wrist at night, and it continuously monitors your blood oxygen, pulse, snoring, motion, and respiratory function. The device helps you understand what’s disrupting your sleep and how to fix it. It’ll also help you discover techniques, tips, and products specific to you. EverSleep gives hospital-grade measurements to you at home without doctors, clinics, or prescriptions.
“We help you sleep. It is just that simple,” EverSleep CEO and Co-Founder Chris Crowley told MedGadget’s Michael Batista. “Our engineering founders have developed 40+ FDA cleared medical devices, and our clinical founder has personally reviewed 30,000 individual patient sleep studies. We fill the gap between crude fitness bracelet sleep measurement and a full overnight hospital sleep laboratory stay.”
