New Addition to Family of Mobile Biofeedback Apps with 20 Million Users — Sleep Time by Azumio — Now Available for iPhone
PALO ALTO, Calif., March 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Azumio(TM), Inc., a leader in mobile biofeedback applications and personal health data management with 20 million users, today announced Sleep Time(TM) by Azumio as the latest addition to its suite of bestselling iOS(TM) health software solutions.
Sleep Time is the premier intelligent alarm clock and sleep analysis solution now available on the market. Utilizing the iPhone® accelerometer and newly developed sleep tracking algorithm, Sleep Time senses your subtle movements throughout the night, graphs your sleep cycles and wakes you up at the best possible time to make you feel refreshed and empowered.
There are several different sleep phases monitored by Sleep Time: Awake, Light Sleep and Deep sleep plus REM (Rapid Eye Movement – the stage where dreaming occurs). The average healthy person is awake approximately 10% of a normal sleep cycle time with Deep plus REM making up 55% and Light equaling 35%. Sleep Time lets you graph how your sleep patterns change over time and how they equate with a normal sleep pattern.
Programmed by the same team that created the chart-topping Instant Heart Rate app and benefiting from collaboration with researchers from Stanford® University, Azumio biofeedback apps are redefining the user experience through always-on, smartphone-only and easy-to-use connected health apps.
“There is a recognized corollary between the lack of good sleep and a healthy heart – Azumio has fulfilled the need for an accurate, state-of-the-art algorithm for sleep analysis that is consumer-accessible as an integral part of a complete mobile health solution – I think Azumio have totally hit the mark with Sleep Time,” said Dr. Paul C. Zei (MD and PhD), Clinical Associate Professor at Stanford.
Sleep data gathered by the app not only provides users with a window into the hidden world of their personal sleep patterns – it also allows for morning wakeups timed to your lightest sleep, allowing you to face the day rested and refreshed. Sleep Time also saves your sleep data and displays a detailed sleep graph and comparative statistics for every night you use it.
Leveraging the same technical innovations that catapulted other Azumio apps to the top of the App Store(TM), Sleep Time is not just a one-off, standalone product. It is instead part of a multi-faceted suite of biofeedback offerings that are designed to help you attain better overall health.
Achieving good sleep is an integral part of a healthy lifestyle – and not having it contributes to stress on both body and mind. This makes Sleep Time an ideal complement to Azumio’s bestselling apps for instant stress analysis (Stress Check by Azumio) and stress relief (Stress Doctor by Azumio) – use them all together for the best sleep experience and stress control opportunities.
Azumio is a leader in biofeedback health apps on mobile devices with more than 15 million downloads to date. Azumio is dedicated to improving people’s health and wellness by influencing behavior through the use of innovative mobile applications.
The venture-backed company is at the forefront of the rapidly growing mobile health app movement, which is expected to impact more than one-third of smartphone users by 2015. For more information, visit Azumio.com or follow http://twitter.com/azumioinc.
