A revolutionary way to monitor sleep  

ETH spinoff Sleepiz has developed the first contactless monitor, approved in Europe as a medical device, to measure breathing rate and diagnose sleep disorders such as sleep apnoea. People who suffer from poor sleep only need to request it online or have it prescribed by their doctor and place it next to their bed for three nights. The device then monitors nighttime breathing with 99% accuracy without any wiring. The data generated is simultaneously transmitted to a cloud platform and analyzed in the form of reports and trend analyses so that it can be discussed with an expert. Sleepiz is an extremely cost-effective and convenient alternative to the sleep laboratory and accordingly has the potential to revolutionize the market.
