Thanks for your interest in our research
About 10% of the adults suffers from a particular sleeping disorder. Sleeping disorders may have all kinds of unpleasant consequences, both for the individual and for his or her environment. Therefore, in the SleepCare project we investigate automated and personalized self-help therapies in the field of sleeping disorders.
The project focuses in particular on insomnia, i.e. a persistent difficulty initiating and/or maintaining sleep. A computerized coaching system will be developed that assists a person in sleep improving exercises on a personal basis. T
he final version of the sleep coach will make use of mobile applications (apps) on a smartphone.
The Sleepcare project is a collaboration between research groups of the University of Utrecht and Delft University of Technology. Sleepcare is supported by Philips, Stichting Technische Wetenschappen (STW), and Nationaal Initiatief Hersenen en Cognitie (NIHC).
