Beddit App Brings Proven Sleep Science to Consumers

Launches Indiegogo Campaign to Finalize Wireless Sleep Sensor & App

HELSINKI--()--Beddit, makers of sleep tracking equipment used by professionals worldwide, announced today the launch of a consumer-priced sleep sensor on the popular crowd-funding platform Indiegogo. The campaign is used for taking pre-orders at discounted price and the funding will be used for finalizing the new consumer version of the Beddit sensor and mobile app.

Better sleep equals better performance in all aspects of life and also better health. Beddit’s proven sleep, heart rate and breathing monitoring sensor and analysis app can be used at home for personal training, stress management, athletic performance, optimizing wake-up times, solving sleep problems, and other conditions that normally would require sensors attached to the sleeper and expensive equipment.

While other smartphone-based sleep apps rely upon the phone's accelerometer and microphone to approximate sleep conditions, Beddit uses a method called ballistocardiography (BCG) coupled with a sophisticated sensor under the sheet to bring scientific accuracy to a smartphone-based sleep and wellness monitor. In addition, Beddit’s app uses proven algorithms to crunch your sleep data and offer personalized programs to achieve better sleep.

Every night while you sleep, Beddit automatically tracks your sleep quality, heart rate, breathing rhythm, movements, snoring, bedroom noise and light. You simply place the Beddit ultra-thin film sensor in your bed, under the sheet -- there is nothing that needs to touch your body, ensuring undisturbed sleep. Essentially, Beddit turns your bed into a Star Trek-style smart bed.

The sensor sends your sleep data over Bluetooth to the smartphone (iOS or Android) and in the morning, the app analyzes your sleep and gives you personalized coaching tips of how to improve sleep and optimize your recovery. All of your sleep data remains confidential in your phone but you can export it if you like.

As a pre-order on Indiegogo, Beddit is offered at $99, a 30% discount. The sensor comes in two colors, black and white. The final product will be available in November.

Sleep is an important part of our lives. After the success of Beddit Pro - used for sleep research and personal training in 19 countries - Beddit now brings this sleep science within everyone's reach at an affordable price.
