Wearable button helps track light intake for healthier sleep
Everybody has a circadian rhythm; it’s the mechanism in your body which lets you know when to wake up, and when you need to go to sleep. However, when this body clock is interrupted, it can impact your sleep quality and could impact both mental and physical health.
The winner of the AXA Health Tech & You Sleep Tech Challenge category, London-based company LYS Technologies, recognised that light exposure through the day and night influences the body clock, therefore influencing the quality of sleep. This realisation began the journey towards the development of their innovation.
