Sleep is a natural state and a basic requirement for health and well-being. However, there are many people who do not sleep restfully. Every year, an increasing number of people suffer from insomnia. "Somnuz", a combination of app and actigraph (wristwatch), is designed to help with diagnosis and therapy. First, the user fills out a questionnaire, consults with a doctor via video call, and is loaned the wristwatch and sent it. The Aktigraph is worn for a few weeks and provides information about the user's movement activity, which can be used to make statements about the quality of sleep.
Once the diagnosis is complete, the watch is returned and the sufferer begins a cognitive behavioral therapy accompanied by the app. This can be progressive muscle relaxation or autogenic training, for example. "Somnuz" is mainly intended for insomnia sufferers, but nevertheless also offers everyone else information and tips about sleep.
