Exploragen launches new sleep app

DNA lifestyle company Exploragen last week launched their first iOS app, which is available on Helix.com. The online marketplace of DNA-powered products offers insights on nutrition, fitness, health, ancestry, family and entertainment. The new app, which is named SlumberType, is a lifestyle app providing insights on the genetics of sleep, enabling people to understand the way sleep can be influenced by DNA.

By analysing four key sleep measurements – Chronotype, Sleep Quality, Sleep Onset Latency and Sleep Duration – the app helps users conclude whether they are a morning or night person, how long it may take them to fall asleep, the duration and quality of their sleep, and how these factors may affect other areas of their lives. SlumberType also features tools and trackers which monitor everyday behaviour that potentially affects sleep.

“Our bodies function at their best when we get the right amount of sleep. SlumberType will allow people to understand how their unique biology, combined with their daily habits and activities, affects their sleep patterns, so they can optimise their lifestyle for better sleep”, said Exploragen co-founder and Head of Science Sara Riordan.

The app was recently launched on 24th July and is available now on Helix.com.
