Smartwatch therapeutic for nightmare disorders
NightWare developed a smartwatch device that delivers digital therapy to alleviate the effects of traumatic nightmares associated with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The machine-learning application offers treatment without pharmaceuticals and runs on the Apple Watch.
The company’s app can collect high-resolution biometric data, analyze sleep patterns, pinpoint the onset of a nightmare and provide vibrotactile feedback to arouse the patient without completely waking them to enable more restful sleep, according to the company.
Nightware has obtained FDA breakthrough device designation and submitted for clearance in May 2020. –SW
