Finnish organisation Beddit, based in Helsinki, has developed a sleep tracker which can be strapped to a mattress. It can sense breathing and heart rate, and claims to be far more accurate than most wearable sleep monitors.
Beddit was a hit on Indiegogo, raising $503,283. The Beddit is capable of calculating not only the quality but also the amount of sleep, down to the minute, using a technique called ballistocardiography (BCG), a scientific method for measuring cardiorespiratory functions.
Data is transferred to smartphone for analysis. One interesting feature of the Beddit is that the sleeper can be woken once it determines enough sleep has been obtained.
