Details

An Intelligent Sleep Mask with smart alarm that allows you to track your REM cycle and long term sleeping patterns.

REMzen - The Intelligent Sleep Mask

REMzen’s singular focus is giving people the best sleep possible. More than 70 million Americans suffer from diagnosable sleep illness. And this sad statistic increases each year with the proliferation of sleep disruptors in our lives. Exposure to blue light from smartphones and computers has disconnected us from the natural regulator of our internal clock–the sun.

Fortunately, REMzen has a solution–REMzen–the intelligent sleep mask. It’s an advanced personal sleep tracker and the world’s Smartest Alarm combined in a lightweight, and supremely comfortable sleep mask. The REMzen wakes you naturally, with spectral light therapy, at just the right moment in your sleep cycle to minimize grogginess and sleep inertia. It provides your body the missing link to the sun, so you can reap the benefits of a properly regulated sleep cycle.

Waking up at the right time, or not waking up at the wrong time, is very important during sleep

In addition, the REMzen tracks the quality of your sleep through REM-cycle analysis. Other wearables on the market tell you how long you slept. But that’s not enough. The REMzen goes further by monitoring many of the same biological signals that are analyzed in professional sleep labs. The REMzen is like a sleep lab you can bring home!

By tracking electrooculographic (EOG) eye tracking and movement, we can better identify REM sleep

With full access to your raw and processed sleep data, you can discover how to get the best possible sleep for your body. And, with the Smartest Alarm, wake up on the right side of the bed every time!

Product Features

  1. The REMzen Smartest Alarm wakes the user at just the right moment within a user-defined window of time. So you can be sure you won’t be roused too early or too late!

  2. Users of the REMzen will receive an automatically generated report of their sleep, including REM-cycle analysis and sleep duration, every time they connect the mask to their personal computer.

  3. In addition, users will be able to download the raw recorded sleep data, recorded in 10-bit digital resolution, so they can see their own trends and biohack their way to better sleep!

  4. The REMzen is battery operated and fully rechargeable. Download data and charge the battery via Micro-USB. Use the REMzen graphic user interface to set the Smartest Alarm waking window and view your sleep analysis. Device will connect to the internet from time-to-time to keep the firmware running up to date.

Why REM?

  • The REM cycle is arguably the most important phase of sleep.
  • The ratio of REM to non-REM sleep is strongly connected with overall quality of sleep.
  • Increased REM sleep has been shown to improve muscle memory and alertness, while a deficiency of REM sleep can be extremely detrimental to ones health.

Manufacturing Plan

Manufacturing the REMzen is accomplished in three phases:

  1. Fabrication and assembly of the electronics
  2. Assembly of the sleep mask chassis
  3. Integration of the two parts

We’ve partnered with industry leaders and proven producers to manufacture the electronics we’ve designed, so that we can ensure the highest quality possible. The electronics will be mounted within customized versions of the best-reviewed slumber mask chassis with handcrafted attention to detail to guarantee comfort and durability.

Risks and Challenges

We’ve worked hard to minimize any risk to the production of the REMzen. The electronics and related hardware are already in the very final stages of development. By using existing, top-rated sleep masks as the frame for the REMzen, we’ve mitigated the possibility of production interruptions delaying your purchase.
