  • About

    We're a team of engineers, designers, and users who believe good sleep will improve the lives of millions. With the use of Sana, the world’s first truly smart sleep mask, we optimise your pathway to complete sleep, even if you suffer from severe insomnia.

    Our founder developed the first version to save his life after a life-threatening car accident. Since then we’ve tested 14 prototypes against 700+ users, and excited to be alumni of the hardware startup accelerator HAX in Shenzhen, China.


    Sana is the only solution available to help those with severe sleep problems, such as those caused by high anxiety or pain. Sana measures and tracks your overall state of health and vitality over time and uses this measure to tailor the device to get you to deep relaxation and sleep fast.

  • Sana Sleep

    Your complete, natural, deep sleep in 10 minutes

    What happens when a 19 year old kid crashes a Jeep, breaks his back and is given a 5 year life expectancy due to the severity of chronic nerve damage pain caused?

    He invents a device to save himself, and then goes on a life-long quest to develop the tech to help potentially millions of others.


    This is the story of Sana, a wearable device that allows the wearer to put themselves to sleep in 10 minutes.


    Based on 24 years and 700+ individual trials of EEG-based research now converted into a device that anyone can use to put themselves to sleep anywhere. The team is focusing on the hardest core cases of PTSD induced insomnia and Chronic Pain insomnia, in order to help those in greatest need first. Clinical trials are scheduled for 2017 with USCF chronic pain clinic, data analysis with Stanford Sleep Labs and PTSD with the UK military. This will be available to the general public from early 2018.

  • How It Works

    Take a look into how Sana works

    Light & Sound Stimulation

    No more counting sheep

    Through neuro-modulated light and sound stimulation, Sana guides your brain through the sequence of patterns (pat. pending) present in the very best natural sleep cycles - putting you into a deep and natural sleep.

    Heart Rate Variability Monitoring

    Small changes, big impact

    With an HRV sensor on the forehead, we can monitor the minor fluctuations in your nervous system, which allows us to tailor the Audio-Visual stimulation to your nervous system’s unique responses (pat. pend.). It also provides us with an incredible metric so you can track your overall health and well-being.
