Sleepify selected for the Go2China programme in Shenzhen
We met Rasmus Nilsson, CEO of the Swedish medtech company Sleepify, accelerated by EIT Health, who told us all about one of the most fundamental needs of human beings – sleep – and about the unique heavy-weight sleeping blankets that his company have developed to cure sleeping disorders related to neuropsychological dysfunctions, stress and anxiety. Thus, we all know that a stable night’s sleep is an effective way of achieving healthy living. Research has proven that 90% of patients experience an increased sleeping quality and with the use of the patented sleeping aid products developed by Sleepify one can shorten the time-to-sleep, increase deep-sleep, and decrease REM-sleep.
