Hugo Mercier

The first non-invasive wearable device designed to improve sleep quality through sound

Year Honored
2017

Region
Europe

"Hugo Mercier has set his sights on tackling an epidemic that affects nearly one-third of the population: poor sleep. As a co-founder of the neurotechnology company Rythm, Mercier has developed the first active, non-invasive sleep wearable, called Dreem. This wearable improves sleep quality through neural stimulations that promote deep sleep using sound and promises to provide a newer, better, safer, and more effective solution to address the widespread public health issue of sleep deprivation. After successfully completing clinical trials and 500 beta test with users, Dreem is already available for pre-order via Rythm’s website."
