What is the relationship between Somnox and Royal Auping?

When the four Somnox founders invented the Sleep robot during their studies, Auping helped them to produce a number of prototypes. When these were well received by people suffering from insomnia, the founders of Somnox decided to start their company and decided to further develop the Sleep robot in collaboration with Auping. Together, the companies developed the first prototypes, from a concept to a truly Auping-worthy product launched in 2019.

Sleep Robot

How does the Sleep Robot work?

The Sleep Robot simulates breathing rhythms. Your breathing naturally adapts when there is contact with a different breathing pattern. As a result, the Sleep Robot can slow down your breathing. This makes you relax, making it easier to fall asleep. 

 

In addition, the Sleeping robot can function as an external point to focus your thoughts, which reduces your worries and stress thoughts. Sounds (through guided meditation or a simulated heartbeat, for example) are also used as extra options to give you an ideal night’s sleep.

Does the Sleep Robot work for me?

The Sleep Robot is meant for people that experience sleeplessness caused by stress-related problems. People that worry at night, about their work or family, and fall asleep after staring at the ceiling for hours or not at all. The Sleep Robot can also be of use for everyone that uses medicine to fall asleep, but would rather do this in a more natural way.

Technology in the bedroom, isn’t that harmful?

That depends what you’re talking about. Sleep experts are indeed advising against bringing your mobile phone, laptop and television into your bedroom. In multiple reports, it has been found that the blue light these gadgets produce has a negative influence on our biological clock. Blue light activates the brain, while we want it to relax to fall asleep. In addition to that, there are the messages and push notifications you receive on your phone. It is very difficult to fall asleep when a phone is constantly buzzing on your nightstand. 

 

But our Sleep Robot doesn’t have all that. No push notifications, screens or blue lights that activate the brain. We use scientifically developed technology that helps your body and mind relax.

How do I keep the Sleep Robot clean?

Keep your Sleep Robot clean with the washable sleeve that comes with the robot. This cotton sleeve is washable up to 60 degrees Celsius in your machine. The grey thicking around the Sleeping robot is removable and can be dry-cleaned if necessary. PLEASE NOTE: never wash your sleeve or thicking while the Sleeping robot is still inside.

Doesn’t it bother the person that is sleeping next to me at night?

We also tested the Sleep Robot with people that share their bed with a partner and the results were just as positive as with people that sleep alone, with next to none complaints from their partners. It even helped them sleep better too, without someone next to them twisting and turning all night. 

Does the Sleep Robot help with sleep apnea or Restless Leg Syndrome?

We haven’t done any research yet that proves this. The Sleep Robot uses breathing as one of its main functions but not with the intention to cure sleep apnea or RLS.

Do I need to keep holding the Sleep Robot at night?

No, it’s not necessary. As soon as you fall asleep, you will automatically let go of the Sleep Robot in most cases. That is not a problem. If you wake up during the night, you can try and hold it again and press the button in the middle: that activates the robot.

How was the effect of the Sleep Robot tested?

Extensive scientific research, user tests and feedback from experts in the field of sleep disorders form the basis of the Sleep Robot. We discovered that the subjective perception of sleep quality was increased and that less time was needed to fall asleep.
