How did it all begin?
SleepRate was established in 2006 by Dr. Anda Baharav, an MD, researcher and sleep expert. Dr. Baharav spent years researching the connection between heart rate and sleep at Tel Aviv University. She discovered that changes in the heart beat directly correlate with various sleep stages during the night. Dr. Baharav decided to take this discovery and turn it into a service and so SleepRate was born. You can learn more about her and the rest of our team here.
The core technology utilizes behavioral sleep medicine practices developed and implemented at Stanford University’s Behavioral Sleep Division. Based on these practices, Dr, Baharav’s in-depth knowledge and experience, and the input of countless experts and medical advisers, SleepRate’s unique solution for better sleep-life balance was developed. Quite simply, it’s a custom-tailored, step-by-step, program that helps improve mental and physical performance by “rebooting” your sleep system. You can learn more about it here.
SleepRate is based in Sunnyvale, California and Petach Tikvah, Israel. Feel free to contact us to learn more, or even come and visit us – we’d be happy to see you in person!
