Sometimes I receive information from PR companies about new products that are coming up in the market, and I am often approached to help with campaign funding publicity. This happens when companies come up with new products or services, and set up campaigns to help them fund the release of the product. I am always happy to post about a product that I think might be interesting for my readers.
A new campaign that is just starting today is EverSleep crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.
EverSleep Personal Sleep Tracker is the only consumer sleep tracker using the same oxygen monitoring technology healthcare professionals use.
Only EverSleep provides personalized coaching to help solve sleep problems. Users download a simple analysis engine app that details nightly sleep measurements and explains the causes of any abnormalities in snoring, insomnia, breathing disturbances (that can be caused by sleep apnea), pulse rate, micro-motions, and continuous blood oxygen levels.
EverSleep functions include non-intrusive measurement of blood-oxygen, severe and mild snoring, pulse abnormalities, sleep fragmentation, autonomic micro-motions, and time in bed.
A little bit of the history of the product: David Tobler and Chris Crowley are medical device engineers with successful careers focused on “pulse oximetry” oxygen monitoring technology. Craig Pickerill is a very successful sleep clinician and entrepreneur, building a chain of sleep laboratories throughout the central US. The founders realized that “ﬁtness bracelet” sleep monitoring doesn’t tell the user WHY they are sleeping badly. Free “snore” apps only tell you something that you already know, you are snoring! The consumer has to choose between an ineffective $129 bracelet, or an uncomfortable $1200 in-hospital sleep study prescribed by their doctor. The key to true clinical sleep lab monitoring is oxygen measurement – used to detect sleep apnea. Sleep apnea a medical description for interrupted breathing during sleep. Your body’s oxygen plummets and your pulse rate increases to compensate for the missing oxygen. These interruptions can be minor, or they can catastrophically “ruin” your sleep for the entire night. Thus was born EverSleep! With clinical grade oxygen monitoring, pulse rate monitoring, and extremely sensitive motion detection, we differentiate between many types of sleep problems. It’s a simple, comfortable, inexpensive consumer home health device that delivers much of the beneﬁt of a true sleep lab.
