Now the company — which made the 2019 CNBC Upstart 100 list, revealed on Tuesday — is making its most ambitious move yet: to get regulatory approval to detect sleep apnea, which would make Beddr a much easier alternative for detecting this common condition than the current method, which requires sleeping in a lab while hooked up to wires.
Beddr was named one of CNBC's Upstart 100 for 2019
This podcast contains a full overview and review of Beddr by co-host Mikah Sargent.
"Without enough sleep, work can feel unbearable. That's why Beddr, a wellness startup based in California, is now offering its flagship sleep monitors to businesses. Employees can be equipped with devices that track sleep, diagnose issues and offer solutions for each one."
"Beddr’s comprehensive approach helps people understand and improve their sleep in an engaging, personalized and evidence-based way by capturing gold standard data and providing easy access to sleep medicine and behavioral change experts."
"Employees using the Beddr benefit will have access to an expert-led sleep coaching program and a nationwide network of sleep physicians to provide targeted treatment options to help employees improve their sleep health. The program has the potential to save an employer up to $5,700 per employee, per year in productivity improvements, lower healthcare costs and decrease accident rates."
"In addition to the insights provided by the SleepTuner, Beddr’s four-week sleep coaching program pairs each person with a trained sleep coach who provides personalised guidance to improve their sleep hygiene. Designed by experts in behavioural coaching, sleep and chronic conditions, Beddr’s coaching aims to provide people with the foundation to build sustainable sleep habits."
Named a "Sleep Accessory We're Going to Bed With"
"Beddr’s sleep health program aims to address widespread sleep issues through a more comprehensive approach than an app or a device alone."
"Beddr has now enhanced its offering with improved data and insights, an expert-led sleep coaching program, and a nationwide network of sleep physicians to provide targeted treatment options proven to help employees improve their sleep health."
"Guarding your downtime and making sure you are not only getting a normal amount of sleep but good quality sleep is a good long-term strategy to protect your brain health,” said Dr. Jagdeep Bijwadia, a board-certified doctor of sleep medicine and chief medical officer of sleep health at technology startup Beddr."
"...the Beddr SleepTuner, which you stick to your forehead, is a dedicated sleep tracking device geared towards people who suspect they may have breathing issues."
"Ed Pienkosz, head of sleep coaching at Beddr says, “Research has shown that a room temperature between 60 – 67 degrees is the optimal range for comfortable sleep. As our bodies enter sleep our natural temperature dips slightly as it goes through the different sleep stages."
"Snoring affects 90 million Americans and the majority of these people “are unaware of why they snore or what snoring could indicate about their overall health,” according to Jagdeep Bijwadia, a board-certified doctor in internal, sleep and pulmonary diseases medicine."
