The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has declared sleep deprivation a public health epidemic.
Over 1 billion people worldwide suffer from sleep disorders like sleep apnea.
Up to 4x health risk The consequences of sleep deprivation may include: chronic fatigue and daily underperformance, heightened risk for diabetes, depression and cardiovascular disease and increased likelihood to be involved in a serious accident.

The Science Behind Beddr
Many factors can affect the quality of our sleep. The Beddr SleepTuner combines both quantitative and qualitative measures to offer an insightful sleep assessment.
The SleepTuner sensor measures many of the same essential parameters of sleep breathing as sleep labs. Oxygen has been a cornerstone of sleep measurement since the beginning, as it is a key indicator of respiratory function.
Breathing issues during sleep can impair oxygen levels, resulting in disrupted sleep and increased physiologic stress. Sleeping position is typically the strongest driver of oxygen variability in those with sleep breathing issues. The SleepTuner records and analyzes oxygen and sleeping position data to provide insights about your sleep.
Qualitatively, the SleepTuner app helps users record and understand other factors influencing their sleep quality. These include things like alcohol consumption, sleeping pills, and allergies which can affect sleep breathing. By combining data with sleep journaling over multiple nights, Beddr offers deeper insights into sleep issues, and the ability to discover what actions result in the greatest improvement.
