Sleepfit fuses technology with evidence-based medical expertise to improve the health and wellbeing of its users. The app screens, educates and triages people with sleep issues and disorders into personalised pathways to improve their sleep. This may include help with poor sleep habits driven by lifestyle and behavior choices, or it may identify and assist individuals with a sleep disorder such as insomnia, obstructive sleep apnoea, or restless legs syndrome.
dacadoo supports its users by improving their overall health and wellbeing. The majority of its users feature high on dacadoo’s patented Health Score. However, some users show signs of a sleep disorder or want to improve their quality of sleep. For these individuals, Sleepfit will provide content to dacadoo’s platform, using sleep goals focusing on how to improve the user’s quantity and quality of sleep within a timeframe of up to four weeks. If users continue to exhibit serious symptoms of a sleep disorder, dacadoo will refer them to Sleepfit to initiate a focused program that may last for a longer period of time.
“Our partner program with Sleepfit expands our user base and provides them with additional services that strengthen their health and wellbeing,” Peter Ohnemus, founder and CEO of dacadoo, said in a statement. “Going forward, we intend to add further collaborations that will help us to expand into areas of mental wellbeing and developing preventive measures to address diseases such as dementia or Alzheimer”.
According to recent studies about 45% of the global population suffers from sleep problems that affect their health and wellbeing. Besides the health implications, the economic costs of insufficient sleep are enormous.
