NSF and LARK Partner for Sleep Health Education
The National Sleep Foundation is pleased to announce its partnership with LARK, creator of the award-winning sleep monitor, silent alarm clock, and personal sleep coach, to educate consumers on the importance of sleep and the best practices for sleep health.
“We’re excited by the potential of the convergence of technology and interest in sleep,” says David Cloud, CEO of the National Sleep Foundation. “LARK is at the cutting edge of consumer sleep devices and by working together, the National Sleep Foundation and LARK can help everyone understand how to make the most of their time in bed.”
LARK worked with top sleep experts to design an actigraph wristband that detects wearers’ unique sleep patterns and wirelessly uploads them to their iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Users get an immediate picture of how they’ve slept and analysis shows what “Sleep Type” they are and the easiest ways for them personally to improve. LARK offers a premium subscription, LARK Pro, which actively coaches people towards improving their sleep. The LARK wristband also features a silent alarm that wakes the wearer gently by mild vibrations.
“LARK is excited to be working with such a luminary in sleep,” said LARK CEO and founder Julia Hu. “Sleep is absolutely the foundation for health, happiness, and success, and yet it is a challenge and mystery to many. We applaud The National Sleep Foundation for educating the public about sleep. Our goal is to work together to empower everyone with information and personalized methods to help them get a great night’s sleep, and to enjoy a better morning.”
NSF and LARK are collaborating on ways to bring personalized awareness to the public. Their first initiative will be to provide National Sleep Foundation educational materials for LARK products branded with the distinct National Sleep Foundation logo.
LARK products are available at all Apple Stores and at LARK.com. LARK Pro subscriptions are available on LARK.com.
