The first smart ring to deliver intensive sleep re-training
The smart ring to fall asleep faster
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 University sleep scientists who carried out these trials were so passionate about these results, they assisted our team to bring THIM to the world.
The sleep improvement program developed from this research is now known as Intensive Sleep Re-Training and 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 soon after you have fallen asleep.
Falling asleep, repeatedly, can condition you to sleep better. Each attempt at falling asleep and then waking up is called a sleep trial. In University studies, sleep trials have been shown in most people to reduce to improve sleep. THIM delivers these sleep trials during the first 1-hour of your bedtime. 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 minuteincrease in total sleep duration
Track your sleep & monitor progress
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 a greater range 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. 85% or above is considered an excellent score.
Sleep onset latency (time taken to fall asleep each night)
Stages of sleep and their duration
Frequency and duration of waking episodes
THIM was nominated by the National Sleep Foundation – the peak body for sleep scientists, clinicians and consumers in the USA – for a prestigious Sleep Tech Award.
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, that can actually improve sleep.
wearable sleep device
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 to send your sleep program and transfer your sleep data back from the ring. No need to stay connected, THIM can operate independently throughout the night.
Universal – 4 interchangeable band sizes included
Integrated rechargeable 26 mAh lithium-ion battery
Mini-USB cable (included)
The app is free for both iOS and Android. THIM requires Android (operating system 7 or later) or iOS (operating system 11 or later).
