Sleepiz developed a revolutionary sleep disorder-screening device. By using wireless technology, the device can measure vital human signs at medical accuracy without touching the patient - enabling non-contact clinical grade home diagnosis of sleep apnea.

Since their founding, the Startup has seen continuous progress and received support in different disciplines. For instance, in its early stages, the team completed two pilot studies with their Minimal Viable Product (MVP) and attained the first clinical validation. In August, Sleepiz received € 50,000 for winning the EIT Health Germany’s Headstart Awards. In an interview with EIT Germany, the startup founders revealed that the startup received funding from Horizon 2020 and Innosuisse. Additionally, the startup has closed partnerships with large hospitals and with world-renowned research institutions in Switzerland.

To date, Sleepiz has proven the technology in a clinical context and is currently in the process of obtaining the necessary medical approvals.
