Sleep tracking has become very popular, but none provide proper analysis nor actions toward improvement. CBTi is a validated method for improving poor sleep habits but requires manual input and time commitment.

Market Analysis: CBTi vs Sleep Tracking
CBTi Features                    = our app can help accomplish.

Sleep Restriction

Training to optimize time asleep vs time in bed. Consists of calculating time user sleeps each night and restricting their time in bed to that number. Evaluated each week and increased steadily as sleep efficiency increases.

 

Stimulus Control

Training the users mind to perceive their bed as a stimulus for only sleep and sex. Consists of keeping away from the bedroom until they are ready to fall asleep and getting out of bed if they are having trouble sleeping.

 

Sleep Hygiene

Involves changing lifestyle habits that can prevent healthy sleep such as napping during the afternoon, smoking, and not exercising.

 

Improving Sleep Environment

Keeping bedroom quiet, dark and cool, hiding the clock from view, etc.
