Inventor Richard Mills has created the SleepCogni, a device intended for the treatment of insomnia, according to The Star.

The device, which features a hoop on an arm over the bed, produces sounds and light patterns designed to send people to sleep. It also monitors heart rate, mental alertness, skin temperature and movement.

Richard, who lives in Oughtibridge, said: “I became convinced it wasn’t just the hour before bed that explained why I couldn’t fall asleep, it was the whole modern lifestyle. SleepCogni has proved successful in clinical trials and is endorsed by those who have seen it in action.”

Martyn Ware developed the sound element of SleepCogni, while Sheffield Hallam University ran clinical trials which show 50 per cent of insomniacs reported better quality sleep while 40 per cent slept longer.
