About this project

Meet Sleepman:

Sleepman is the world’s first all-in-one wearable gadget that gives you:

Bio-Smart Alarm with unique functions: Sleep Enhancer that improves your sleep efficiency and Power Nap Alarm that offers a “quick recharge” when you feel tired or drowsy; Doze-Off Alert for early fatigue detection featuring driving and office modes;

...and more...

 

IN THE PRESS

IS SLEEPMAN FOR YOU? 

According to CDC insufficient rest is a public health epidemic! Nothing affects our mood, productivity and creativity as badly as a bad night’s sleep. By helping you sleep better, Sleepman can help you reduce stress and fatigue, eliminate daytime drowsiness, boost daily performance and improve your general health, memory and wellbeing.

 How Is Sleepman Different?

Sleepman monitors your brain activity through Electro-Dermal Activity (EDA) sensors on your wrist – the information it collects are your brain’s unique bio-signals. The advanced EDA bio-signal tracking algorithms that are used by Sleepman have been thoroughly tested and optimized for more than two decades.

EDA monitoring is the preferred way to read brain activity and bio signals because it’s highly accurate, non-intrusive and does not interfere with your neuro-activity. Sleepman goes a step further using self-adjusting algorithms that can adapt to your individual bio-signals.

Bio-Smart Alarm - always wakes you up on the right side of the bed  

The secret to waking up full of energy every day is in the timing. You need to be awoken in the right sleep stage, otherwise you feel groggy. Your sleep stages alternate continually during the night and are constantly monitored by Sleepman. It detects when you’re in your lightest sleep stage and wakes you up within a 20 minute window of your alarm.

 

Sleepman: feel the difference!

 Power Nap Alarm - daytime drowsiness and jetlag solution

Sleep experts found that 15 – 20 min power napping is the most effective way to recharge, improve alertness, memory and mood throughout the day.

Waking up at the right time is key – if you fall into a deep sleep, you’ll wake up feeling more tired than before. 

By monitoring your bio signals during your nap, Sleepman wakes you up just before you enter a deep sleep. 

 

Sleep Enhancer - helps to get better rest over the same time

Sleep Enhancer is a sleep intensifying massager designed to make your sleep more restful. It is a small external electrode with a sticky gel pad which plugs into Sleepman device and attaches to your palm. While you sleep, the device emits series of micro-current impulses which help to increase deep sleep from around 13 – 20% of overall sleep time to about 35 – 40%.

The Sleep Enhancer is safe to wear regularly throughout the night and the electromagnetic impulses can’t be felt by the user. When paired with Sleepman’s Sleep Tracker, you’re likely to see immediate improvements in the quality of your sleep.

Gel pads can be used up to 100 times

Doze-off Alert - increasing your safety

Sleepman Doze-Off Alert is designed for the early detection of fatigue to keep you safer whether you drive a car, operate heavy machinery or involved in any other alertness-demanding activity.  

In a driving mode it monitors the driver’s bio-signals, detects loss of concentration at the very early stages and warns the driver by vibrating, flashing lights and/or sounds prompting them to stop and get a rest to avoid accidents.

An office mode is designed for people who work long shifts or need to stay concentrated. It will warn you of drowsiness and offer to “quickly recharge” yourself with Sleepman’s Power Nap function.

Panic Alarm - help when you need it

Sleepman’s Panic Alarm can be paired with your mobile phone and pre-programmed to send an emergency message or dial an emergency number if you’re in trouble. This function is ideal for users who may have a medical emergency, get into an accident or run into a situation where immediate assistance is needed. Do not frantically search for your phone, just activate the Panic Alarm on your Sleepman. When Panic Alarm is triggered, a loud warning will sound and you will have 15 seconds to cancel if triggered by mistake. 

InsomniZap - helps to fall asleep easy

Do you have difficulty falling asleep or putting your kids to bed? Sleepman’s InsomniZap application is designed to aid in relaxing the mind so you can fall asleep faster.

InsomniZap is an interactive application for smartphones and laptops and works with iOS, Android, Mac and PC.

The application works best for children who have difficulty sleeping but is effective for people of all ages, who have trouble falling asleep or suffer from insomnia.  

InsomniZap uses an image-led game which is paired with your Sleepman device to monitor your bio-signals. Users are made aware of their activity levels through the movements of their virtual companion. The application teaches you to relax and ultimately fall asleep naturally. InsomniZap is an effective self-training tool and it’s also fun!

Heart Rhythms Monitor - checks you on the go

Sleepman’s heart rhythms monitor tracks your heart rate data, can detect variations in your heart-beat rate and warns you if hazardous arrhythmia is detected. Around 80% of sudden cardiac deaths is the result of hazardous ventricular arrhythmias which affect 14 million people in the USA. Arrhythmias can occur at any age but are often more common among older adults.

Sleep and Activity Tracker

Get your best night’s sleep, every night with Sleepman’s Sleep and Activity Tracker. Sleepman provides information on your sleep patterns, daytime activity and concentration levels. This information is transmitted to your smartphone via Bluetooth and presented in clear and easy-to-understand visual graphs.

You will be able to see how a good night's sleep and daytime power naps increase your wellbeing and easily adjust your routines to improve your daily performance and the quality of your sleep.

HOW WE GOT HERE

It’s fair to say that almost everyone could use better sleep which is what motivated our team to create Sleepman - a wellbeing partner for everyone! We have been working on bringing a good night’s sleep to the world for more than two years and now we are ready to share Sleepman with you.

We have refined and tested the most effective bio-tracking technologies and implemented them into state-of-the-art hardware and software, all in the comfortable design of Sleepman. Working prototypes of Sleepman were introduced at NBC4 News Health & Fitness Expo in May 2016.
