There are many people who suffer from insomnia, also known as sleeplessness, is a sleep disorder where people have trouble sleeping.They may have difficulty falling asleep, or staying asleep as long as desired. Therefore, in order to overcome this difficulty, Sana Health has come up with these new goggles that will put you to sleep within 10 mins.
The Sana Sleep “smart goggles,” will be available to the too-tired public starting in the second quarter of 2018, according to Sana Health founder and CEO Richard Hanbury.Sana Sleep looks like padded goggles, or a pared down and comfy version of a VR headset. It is being tested currently with athletes in training who want the most restorative sleep they can get while traveling extensively.
Hanbury explained this is how the device works: “It uses audio-visual stimulation to trigger specific patterns in the brain. In the same way that when you go into a nightclub, and hear fast music and see strobed lights, this produces an excited state in your brain, this device produces the patterns your brain needs in order to produce deep states of relaxation.”
The goggles emit pulses of light and sound. The wearer is conscious of the lights and sounds at the outset of each use, but becomes less aware of these as they drift off to sleep. The goggles measure things like a users’s pulse and breathing, and customizes the signals in response to the individual’s bio metrics.
The goggles must be trained, initially. After about 4 uses wearers (even those dealing with chronic pain issues) can get to sleep within ten minutes, and more importantly can sleep through the night.
“Sana is based on 24 years of sleep research and has gone through extensive subject trials. While bringing continuous improvement to the experience, the company will need to now spend some time understanding which distribution channels are the most adapted for its offering,” he said.
Sana is the only solution available to help those with severe sleep problems, such as those caused by high anxiety or pain. Sana measures and tracks your overall state of health and vitality over time and uses this measure to tailor the device to get you to deep relaxation and sleep fast.
