SleepRate, a company that helps people sleep better to improve their quality of life, released a major update to its Sleep Improvement Plan to help people with Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome (DSPS) otherwise known as Night Owls get quality sleep. According to the American Sleep Foundation, DSPS affects 15 percent of teenagers and adults, oftentimes preventing them from meeting daytime obligations, such as arriving to work or school on time. Night Owl Syndrome also causes daytime sleepiness that can contribute to irritability, long-term health issues, lost productivity, and serious injury or accidents.
SleepRate detects if a person has DSPS, various forms of Insomnia, a combination of both, or other sleep issues by monitoring and analyzing a persons heart rate over the course of five nights. Once the issues are detected, a personalized Sleep Improvement Plan is generated based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBTI) protocols exclusively licensed from Stanford University School of Medicine, Psychiatry, and Behavioral Sciences. This affordable, non-pharmaceutical approach guides people through a series of sleep-related behavioral changes to readjust the biological clock, increase sleep drive, and reduce nighttime alertness to achieve healthy sleep.
