The Science of Sleep

We are used to thinking of sleep as almost involuntary.
Something that happens - or doesn’t - outside of our control. Through science, however, we have discovered exactly how to access quality sleep, every time.

65% of humans have disrupted sleep of some kind

While the causes of this disruption may vary, the brain wave patterns for sleep, deep sleep or lack of sleep are well known. We discovered how to stimulate the brain to replicate the patterns that will enable falling asleep or deep sleep in order to improve an individual’s sleep experience.
We integrated this knowledge with cutting edge AI technology that connects to a wearable EEG device and reports on an individual’s brain activity during sleep. This constant data feed enables the device to tailor the brain stimulation in a way that will prove most effective for each individual.

Fully Adaptive
Closed-loop System


Our sensory technology enables a simple, at home EEG. Combining EEG data with advanced computer science, Cognyx can read and learn brain patterns with stunning precision.


AI and machine learning allow our algorithms to adapt to each individual user need. Because no two people sleep alike.


The Neural Activation System is a new proprietary system that adapts your brain function based on information analyzed in the sensing stage.

What is an EEG?

Tell me about these brain waves and what exactly you do…

An EEG is shorthand for an electroencephalogram.

A diagnostic test that tracks and records brain wave patterns. Traditionally, this test was quite unwieldy, involving professional application, small metal disks attached to your head with sticky stuff and connecting to a machine with wires. 

The brain is made up of about one billion neurons that transfer information through chemical and electrical processes. Many neurons join together to create the conditions for a good night sleep. By studying these connections and specific brainwaves that are unique to each phase of sleep, Cognyx can stimulate the neurons to perform in the desired way, initiating and maintaining high quality sleep that is natural to each individual.
