A randomized controlled trial reveals improvements in sleep quality and stress reduction for users of the Dein Schlaf Dein Tag app.


Summary: SleepScore Labs announced positive results from a randomized controlled trial of its digital sleep improvement program, the Dein Schlaf Dein Tag app. The study, involving 412 individuals with poor sleep, found significant improvements in sleep quality, overall sleep problems, and stress reduction after six and 12 weeks of use. These findings validate the app’s effectiveness, which uses PSG-validated sonar methods and personalized, evidence-based sleep and circadian advice. The study’s success has led to full reimbursement from public insurers in Germany and supports SleepScore’s expansion across the European Union.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Dein Schlaf Dein Tag app by SleepScore Labs significantly improved sleep quality, reduced overall sleep problems, and lowered stress levels in a randomized controlled trial involving 412 individuals.
  • The study supports the efficacy of digital sleep improvement programs that use personalized, evidence-based advice and PSG-validated sonar methods, demonstrating their potential to enhance population sleep health.
  • The positive outcomes have led to full reimbursement from public insurers in Germany, positioning SleepScore Labs for expansion throughout the European Union.

SleepScore Labs has announced positive results from a randomized controlled trial of its digital sleep improvement program, the Dein Schlaf Dein Tag app, showing improvements in sleep quality and stress reduction among participants.

The trial, which included 412 individuals with poor sleep, showed that participants using the Dein Schlaf Dein Tag by SleepScore App reported significant improvements in perceived sleep quality, overall sleep problems, and feelings of rejuvenation after sleep, both at the six- and 12-week measurement periods as compared with the control group. Improvements in self-reported stress levels were also found at the 12-week time point.

“The magnitude and durability of positive care effects found in the study are exciting and further validate our hypothesis that personalized, adaptive, and engaging sleep improvement programs grounded in evidenced-based sleep, circadian, and behavioral science have the potential to improve population sleep health at scale,” says Elie Gottlieb, PhD, lead applied sleep scientist at SleepScore Labs and co-investigator of the trial, in a release.

Measuring Sleep Objectively

The study highlights the efficacy of the Dein Schlaf Dein Tag app from SleepScore Labs, which is designed to objectively measure sleep via PSG-validated sonar methods and improve sleep by providing personalized, dynamic, and evidenced-based sleep and circadian advice and education founded in the principles of sleep hygiene and cognitive-behavioral skills. 

The outcomes of the study have paved the way for SleepScore’s attainment of full reimbursement from public insurers in Germany. This milestone has been made available to 74 million insured individuals in Germany, positioning it for expansion throughout the European Union. 

The positive outcomes of the randomized controlled trial complement the recently launched SleepScore APIs seamlessly integrating its sleep improvement program with healthcare and wellness products and services.

Advancing Consumer Sleep Technologies

“This research represents a massive leap forward by proving the utility of consumer sleep technologies to improve population sleep and circadian health. No longer relegated to only monitoring or measuring sleep, SleepScore Labs now empowers users in their personal journey in pursuit of sleep optimization,” says Nate Watson, MD, current chair of SleepScore’s scientific advisory board and former president of both the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and American Board of Sleep Medicine, in a release.

Preliminary results of the randomized controlled trial will be presented at SLEEP 2024 in Houston, and SleepScore expects to submit additional results from the trial to a peer-reviewed journal for publication in the coming weeks.
