Online therapy for curing insomnia and improving sleep
We are, Vigilantes do Sono. We provide a drug-free self-treatment therapy that helps people improve their sleep by changing behaviours and adjusting bed-sleep environment connection. It is based on a scientific method known as "Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Insomnia" (CBTi). During 2 months, the patient is guided by a chatbot called "Sonia". Daily, Sonia teaches sleep techniques and monitors the patient's sleep and habits. During the treatment users have a community to connect to peers to share experiences and help each other on this sleep improvement journey and can be accompanied by their health care professional via technical reports. What differentiate us from other alternatives is that we are cheaper than alternatives (10x-100x less expensive) and we maintain frequent interactions with user, optimizing people behaviour change. It is also healthier and more sustainable then using medicines. Our preliminary results (soon to be published in a scientific paper) show that people that follows our therapy increases total sleep time by 79 minutes and reduce time to fall asleep in 30 minutes. Those results are better than most medicines and in-person therapy. Other studies suggests that improving sleep via CBTi also improves depression, anxiety, menopause, cognitive performance, and overall well-being.
