Our Story

How it all began

Sleeprate was established in 2006 by Dr. Anda Baharav an MD, researcher and sleep expert. Dr. Baharav spent years researching the connection between heartrate, sleep and stress at Tel Aviv University. She discovered that changes in the heartbeat directly correlate with various sleep stages during the night. Dr. Baharav decided to take this discovery and turn it into a service.
This is how Sleeprate was born.

Making sleep solutions accessible to everyone

Sleeprate was set up as an alternative to sleep clinics. Its founders wanted to make it as easy as a pregnancy test, with the goal of bringing a first-class solution to as wide an audience of people as possible.

Pioneering the Use of Wearables for Sleep Monitoring

Sleeprate hit upon the idea of wearables a long time before the concept made it into the mainstream market, and even before the technology was available.

As early as 2011, the company was using pulse chest belts for tracking sleep patterns. Today Sleeprate is BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). It works with any compatible heart rate wearable or tracking device, such as Apple Watch, Fitbit, and Garmin.

The first mobile self-help sleep monitoring,
assessment and improvement program

Our patented solution links heartbeats and brain activity to provide accurate and validated sleep measurement and assessment. The core technology utilizes behavioral sleep medicine (CBTi) practices developed and implemented at Stanford University’s Behavioral Sleep Division.

Based on these practices, together with 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. Put simply, Sleeprate is a custom-tailored, step-by-step program that helps improve mental and physical performance by “rebooting” your sleep system.
