We spend a third of our lives sleeping, yet most people still know relatively little about sleep and its implications for our bodies. With their breakthrough wearable technology that improves deep sleep quality, Hugo Mercier, CEO of Rythm not only studies our sleep behaviour but actively enhance our deep sleep, which improves both cognitive and physical performance throughout the day. Rythm is France’s speaker at Ideas from Europe.
By actively influencing user behaviour, the device goes beyond typical wearables that only monitor and report physical activity, making it the world’s first active wearable. When sleepers exhibit brain activity indicating they are in deep sleep, the headband stimulates sound to enhance the quality of deep sleep. Rythm’s Dreem brings numerous sensors including electroencephalogram (EEG) to monitor and analyze brain electrical activity in real time.
“The brain is the most complex system known today, and within that field of study, sleep is a new domain that presents a variety of complex problems and solutions,” said Hugo Mercier, CEO & Co-founder at Rythm.
Hugo Mercier will represent France at the Ideas from Europe semi-finals in Tallinn this November. He will try to convince the jury of the importance of his innovative idea and why Rythm should be on the Ideas from Europe stage in the Knight’s Hall in The Hague in April 2018.
