Users will be able to get personalized tips on how to improve their sleep, according to a news release.
“Our technology, which has been proven in the hospital environment, answers the market need for accurate wellness tracking and empowers and motivates users,” said Liat Tsoref, vice president and general manager of the Digital Health Business Unit at EarlySense.
“Improving sleep performance is the cornerstone of improving overall health, and improved fitness supports better sleep. Quality sleep at night translates to being more actively engaged during our day-to-day lives and to experiencing a new level of control and insight into our overall well-being,” Tsoref said.
