NEW YORK, December 2, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Sleeprate, a leading sleep platform, and Garmin International, Inc., a global leader in consumer wearables, today announced the first mobile self-help sleep assessment and improvement program that aims to help consumers sleep better, track their recovery, and optimize workouts.
Under the collaboration, Sleeprate will use the Garmin Health Companion SDK to access health and activity data from Garmin wearable devices. As a result, users will gain a deeper and more accurate look at how physical performance and sleep are related.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 108 million people in the U.S. suffer from sleep deprivation, which is defined as less than the recommended 7 to 8 hours of sleep for adults. By this definition, roughly 30 percent of Americans are sabotaging their fitness goals because they are not getting enough sleep.
CEO and founder of Sleeprate, Dr. Anda Baharav, says this new integration will allow Sleeprate to give consumers better insight on how their individual exercise habits are affecting their sleep and create customized behavioral goals to realign the body's internal clock for a better night's sleep.
Users will get deeper insights on what is happening while they are sleeping and e-coaching to fix their poor sleep habits.
"One of the most important elements of overall health is sufficient and quality sleep," said Dr. Baharav. "People can exercise and eat healthy, but if they don't get enough quality sleep then they won't get the full benefits of the workout."
Sean McNamara, manager, Garmin Health, says that working with Sleeprate will help Garmin Health continue its mission to improve the health of Garmin users and create products that are an essential part of customers' lives.
"This collaboration brings together industry-leading products and data and from both wellness and wearables leaders," said McNamara. "The Companion SDK used by Sleeprate will allow consumers to get a deeper understanding of how exercise and sleep influence each other, providing an engaging solution that helps address sleep difficulties."
Garmin Health provides enterprise solutions that leverage Garmin wearables and the high-quality sensor data they produce for applications in the corporate wellness, population health, and patient monitoring markets.
Sleeprate is a personalized smart, step-by-step program that helps improve mental and physical performance by rebooting users sleep system. The program links heart rate and brain activity to provide an accurate sleep measurement and assessment, followed by an individually tailored, adaptive sleep coaching program. The technology uses behavioral sleep medicine practices with content developed at Stanford University's Behavioral Sleep Division to create a unique solution for a better sleep-life balance. The program is the winner of the National Alliance of Healthcare Purchaser Coalitions Award.
Clinical research has found Sleeprate has an 80 percent success rate of helping people fall asleep faster, and staying asleep throughout the night.
