From research lab to mass market

  1. 1. THE SCIENCE OF BETTER SLEEP Solving the sleep epidemic with neurotechnology.
  2. 2. Bad sleep, a major health issue. 15%have sleep apnea and 80-90% remain undiagnosed 10%of the global population suffer from insomnia. 35%of the global population have a poor sleep quality. Bad sleep over a long period of time is correlated with the apparition of certain serious diseases, like: CANCER CARDIOVASCULAR IMMUNE SYSTEM SCHIZOPHRENIA DEPRESSIONALZHEIMER
