AIMS

01

Facilitate the development of a tailored sleep experience for nights of profound restfulness and days filled with alertness through our personalized sleep-focused application. Experience reduced stress and enhanced sleep quality with a blend of soothing sounds, music, and expertly guided content.

PROBLEM STATEMENT

In today's fast-paced and digitally connected world, an increasing number of individuals within our community face significant challenges in achieving and maintaining quality sleep. The prevalence of sleep disorders, coupled with heightened stress levels and the pervasive use of technology, has contributed to a decline in overall sleep quality among population. Poor sleep not only impacts academic and professional performance but also poses a risk to overall health and well-being. Despite the awareness of the importance of sleep, many individuals lack access to effective tools and resources to address their sleep-related concerns. Existing sleep-tracking applications often lack personalized features, educational content, and comprehensive support systems. The need for a holistic and user-centric solution that combines personalized sleep insights, relaxation techniques, and educational resources is evident. The Dream Catcher project aims to bridge this gap by developing a tailored sleep-focused app that not only tracks and analyzes sleep patterns but also provides users with personalized recommendations, a library of soothing sounds, guided meditation sessions, and educational content. By addressing these specific needs, the Dream Catcher app seeks to empower individuals within our community to adopt healthier sleep habits, enhance overall well-being, and improve their academic and professional performance.

The inaugural sleep-focused smartphone app, Sleep Cycle, made its debut in 2009, exclusively for Apple iOS devices. Initially serving as a digital alarm clock, it also delved into tracking users' sleep patterns. Since its inception, the app has undergone continuous advancements, employing the latest algorithms and analysis software to monitor an expanded range of metrics that contribute to improved sleep.The range of available options has expanded significantly, encompassing meditation sessions, adult bedtime stories, sound machines, and wearable technologies like the Apple Watch.In essence, respondents reported that sleep apps notably contributed to anxiety reduction and the creation of an environment conducive to rejuvenating sleep. The top contenders in this space included Sleep Cycle (50.5%), SleepScore (43.7%), and Headspace (38.2%).

On top of the normal life stresses that disrupt our rest, many people are reporting broken nights and feeling groggy in the morning. If you are struggling with poor sleep, using an app or another form of specialised technology might be the answer, according to Metro a new study. The research, in which PlusBeds polled 1k people to explore their sleep habits found that 46.7% of respondets reported using some form of sleep technology, with those aged 25 or under the most likely to use ir ( 59.9%) . Respondents using sleep technology were over 22% more likely to be satisfied with their sleep and nearly 50% more likely to have great quality sleep than those forgoing sleep tech.Nearly seven in 10 respondents who spent more than £225 in total on sleep technology reported having great quality sleep.So, what exactly do we mean by 'sleep technology'? Chances are, you already have something related to sleep on your mobile device.

THE EVOLUTION OF SLEEP TECHNOLOGY

HIGH SMARTPHONE ADOPTION INTEREST IN HEALTH AND WELLNESSTECH-SAVVY AND DIGITAL ENGAGEMENT PREFERENCE FOR CUSTOMIZATION SOCIAL CONNECTIVITY

BACKGROUND RESEARCH

With an estimated 20,000 mental health apps in existence, major players like Nature sounds relax and sleep, like, Calm, Noisli, Pzizz also providing support beyond traditional mental health services. Collaborations with platforms such as Snapchat and Bumble further enhance accessibility, indicating a growing market trend, the recommendation from NICE last week means that doctors in the UK's National Health Service can prescribe the Sleepio app.

APP LANDSCAPE

the growing impact of mental health apps

The global market for mental health apps, valued at $500 million, may appear modest compared to the broader health and wellness app industry, but its impact is significant. Despite many being low-cost or free, these apps, designed for emotional and mental well-being, are easy to access, integrate seamlessly into daily routines, and offer an enjoyable user experience. Their resilience to disruption, coupled with their supplementary role rather than a replacement for professional mental health treatment, contributes to their surging popularity. Nearly 800 million people worldwide live with mental health conditions (11% of the global population).Research underscores the clinical advantages of mental health apps, with trials showing significant reductions in depressive and anxiety symptoms. Improved well-being not only carries personal benefits but also alleviates the strain on the global economy. Poor mental health, costing the world economy $2.5 trillion per year (pre-pandemic), is projected to increase to $6 trillion by 2030. Lost productivity, accounting for $1 trillion annually, underscores the economic impact.

Mental health care needs are pressing around the world. Apps can deliver support on demand and on the go. There seems to be an app for everything these days, and mental health is no exception, According to Auxier (2021), Deloitte Global preditcs that global spending on mobile mental health applications will reach close to 500$ million in 2022. That is assuming an annual growth rate of 20%.

The same survey found that 85% of adults aged 30-49 and 67% of adults aged 50-64 own smartphones.
