PEGASI Smart Sleep Glasses II is a smart eyewear device which improves sleep quality by physical light therapy. This specific wavelength green light stimulates human’s nervous system, which gives a signal to regulate the level of melatonin secretion and improves sleep quality scientifically. It only takes 7 days to see the changes. The brand-new collapsible frame makes it easier to enjoy PEGASI treatment anywhere.

 
 

Sleep problems have become a main factor affecting people's quality of life now. Irregular bedtime schedule, long-distance travel, and heavy work may result in disordered biological clock and thus affect sleep quality. Your quality of life may be affected at the same time.

NASA: Using Light Therapy to Increase Astronauts' Sleep Quality 

Timed light exposure treatment is recommended by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) as a drug-free method to control and improve sleep quality. In 2012, NASA used timed light exposure treatment to improve astronauts' sleep quality and proved that this method was effective.

PEGASI, a smart medical certified sleep glasses, brings this innovative technology to the public, giving people a brand-new experience of controlling the sleep quality in hand. The light therapy can help your body to manage the biological clock and regulate the circadian rhythm to improve sleep quality.

PEGASI glasses generate a specific wavelength green light and transmit it into our inner retina. Suprachiasmatic nucleus, the core controller of our body’s internal secretion on hypothalamus, adjusts the secretion levels of melatonin under different situations.

Melatonin: A Main Hormone Regulates Your Sleep Cycle

A hormone created by the pineal gland which helps your body to know when it's the time to sleep and wake up. Normally, your body secretes a high level of melatonin at night to help you fall asleep. And the secretion level goes down at sunrise. The amount of the light your body received determines how your body adjusts your mood and energy.

Once Suprachiasmatic nucleus receives the light signal from PEGASI, an order will be sent to the brain to inhibit the secretion of melatonin. This inhibition can last a few hours to help you stay away from sleepiness. Based on the ideal biological clock for most people, the best using time is 7 am - 9 am. After daytime, melatonin will be released drastically to help you fall asleep smoothly in the night. 

1. Wear the glasses correctly. The width of the nose pads can be adjusted.

2. Turn on: Click the button on the right side. 

3. It will turn off automatically after 30 minutes use, or you can click the button on the right side if you finish your treatment. 

4. Continuously use it for 30 minutes between 7 am - 9 am. You can see the changes in 7 days!

Tips: Normally, using 30 minutes between 7am-9am in the morning can help to improve your sleep quality at night. If your energy level is low during the day, choose to use this product as needed. For more details, please refer to the user manual or our official website.

Please note that PEGASI glasses only works when the specific green light casts on our eyes. Make sure your eyes are fully covered by the light. Otherwise, the light doesn't work at all.

Situations you can use PEGASI

1. Basically, as long as PEGASI won't block your vision and bring some risk while you doing something, such as driving, you can always use it. 

2. You can use it while running, exercising, brushing teeth, eating, and so on. Adjust the nose pad to make sure PEGASI won’t fall down while you using it. 

3. As long as your glass frame won't be too thick to block the specific wavelength light, and the lens is not blue light blocking, you can use PEGASI while wearing prescription glasses. 

4. You can watch TV, use phone or laptop while using PEGASI. Electronic screen won’t diminish the effect of the light.

1. Bye pills! 

PEGASI specific wavelength light helps to restrain melatonin secretion in the daytime and stimulate melatonin releasing at night. It works like a natural light, keeping your body work regularly. Forget about sleeping pills. You never need them anymore!

2. PEGASI Does Work!

Clinical Proof

PEGASI conducted a clinical trial at the First Hospital of Hebei Medical University. The results showed that compared with the control group’s time of falling asleep, the average time of falling asleep of the treatment group who used PEGASI smart sleep glasses was reduced by up to 37%.

Customer Reviews

Furthermore, the first generation of PEGASI Smart Sleep Glasses has been sold on the market for more than 2 years. Over 50,000 people have benefited from it around the world. 

CES Award

PEGASI Smart Sleep Glasses won the Innovation Award in CES Asia 2018 in Shanghai.

Choose the one depending on your situation.

We know you guys caring about the sleep researches and studies very much, and some of you may be the members of relative organizations and institutes. Now it’s time for PEGASI to make a contribution to public sleep studies.

When we hit the $80,000 goal, we will donate 20 pairs of PEGASI Smart Sleep Glasses to National Sleep Foundation, a U.S. nonprofit organization that promotes public understanding of sleep and sleep disorders, for study purpose. We would like to get a review from this professional organization of our product and provide resources for them on sleep studies at the same time.

The core team members of PEGASI are previous senior engineers from well-known companies such as Mindray and Huawei. Sam, CEO of PEGASAI, is especially experienced in medical product development. He went to Medical School at the University of Wisconsin-Maddison for education and worked for a long time at Mindray, one of the biggest medical equipment manufacturer in China. He's now leading this team to find a pure and drug-free method to improve sleep quality. And here is the invention of PEGASI Smart Sleep Glasses.

Professional and rigorous, this is how we devote ourselves to be in PEGASI project. After five-year of non-imaging visual study, we made a significant breakthrough in light therapy to improve people’s sleep quality. This technology has been applied to improve the sleep quality of astronauts, Olympic athletes and natural disaster relief teams to ensure that they could face the challenges at their best. 

We also have more than 10 patents including AI+ speech recognition technology, central control technology, autonomous light module technology, etc. We are working on AI+ sleep healthy smart bedroom development now and trying to build an international sleep ecosystem with the American Sleep Foundation and the China Sleep Research Association together.

Risks and challenges

We have been developing, manufacturing and distributing PEGASI Smart Sleep Glasses for over four years. We are confident that we have done everything possible to minimize risks and challenges to PEGASI's Kickstarter backers.

The first generation of PEGASI has been on the market for 2 years and has sold for more than 50,000 units worldwide. We have accumulated a ton of customer feedbacks and reports to make PEGASI II better.

PEGASI Smart Sleep Glasses II are almost in the final stage of mass production. We’re currently ramping up at our factory and are trying out best to meet the estimated delivery times.

Every company faces these challenges, but rarely do consumers see these challenges. Our biggest tool for battling these risks is having previous experience bringing prototypes from concept to full production, including working with contract manufacturers and shipping internationally. We know that building physical goods is a dynamic process with lots of room for hiccups along the way. We will keep an open dialogue with all of our backers through frequent, transparent, and thorough updates.
