The first smart ring to deliver sleep improvement programs

The Smart Ring for Better sleep

In 2007 a group of volunteers would participate in a world first sleep trial. Their experience would change their lives forever.

Once poor sleepers, these volunteers would experience dramatic improvement. They were able to fall asleep sooner and have less wakefulness across the night.

The sleep conditioning technique used has been designed into a small smart ring called Thim. The same University sleep scientists whom carried out these trials were so passionate about these results – they worked along side our team to bring Thim to the world.

What started as an experimental sleep trial in 2007 is now the worlds most advanced wearable for sleep. Sleep well tonight, get the most from tomorrow.

Using your Thim smart ring

When ready for bedtime – place Thim on any finger. Thim will emit a soft vibration to gently wake you after 3-minutes of sleeping.

This process is repeated, providing a series of short 3-minute naps. It’s this process of falling asleep and then waking which conditions you to sleep better – as demonstrated in two University trials. In the morning , most users do not remember being woken. This is because drifting between the earliest stages of the sleep cycle are subtle.

These naps are delivered during the first stage of your sleep cycle – typically the first hour of bedtime. After this, you’re able to enjoy a long nights rest.

This conditioning program is a simple technique used by sleep clinics for over 10 years. Our team worked with Professor Leon Lack to imbed this program into a wearable device which you can use in your own home.

From the sleep lab

Published insomnia research from the scientists demonstrates that on average, users experienced a: 

       28 minute reduction in time awake 

       30 minute reduction in sleep onset latency

       67 minute increase in total sleep duration 

Sleep tracker. Actionable insight  

Thim will also monitor your sleep stages and sleep quality throughout the night. You can track sleep after you finish a sleep conditioning session, or elect to track sleep only.  

Much like a FitBit sleep tracker, Thim uses movement to track sleep. But Thim collects data from your finger, not your wrist. Your finger provides greater range and frequency of movement. Thim captures this extra movement and interprets those results through a unique sleep-tracking algorithm. 

These results are displayed on the dashboard of your smart phone so you can see how Thim is improving your sleep – and how lifestyle choices also affect your sleep and performance. 

Specifically, your dashboard will show: 

  • Sleep efficiency score 
  • Sleep onset latency (time taken to fall asleep each night) 
  • Stages of sleep and their duration 
  • Frequency and duration of waking episodes 


Thim has been recognized for outstanding innovation by the National Sleep Foundation – the peak body for sleep scientists, clinicians and consumers in the USA.

This recognition is testament to work of the sleep scientists whom began this journey back in 2007 and their remarkable efforts to find a insomnia solution. 

Thim has also been featured by leading medical publications:

Techniques previously used in the laboratory have been replicated in the new device, called Thim, to help people learn to fall into a longer, deeper sleep pattern” – Medical Express Journal, 2017 

Thim is more much than a sleep tracker. Thim is a FitBit, which actually improves sleep.

We’ve blended the latest in sleep science with organic design. We wanted this technology to represent the ability to disconnect and dream. Thim connects to your smart phone via Bluetooth low energy technology. This allows you to program your device. It also allows your sleep data to be transferred from your device to your smart phone in real time.
