Wired: Beddit sleep analysis among Helsinki's hottest startups

Fri, 25.09.2015

The Wired magazine lists in its September 2015 issue Helsinki's 10 hottest startups. Among them is Beddit, a company whose unique sleep analysis software was developed in the PhD work of Joonas Paalasmaa at the Department of Computer Science. 

From Wired:

"Sleep is the foundation of health and wellness," explains Lasse Leppäkorpi, 35, founder and CEO of sleep-monitor firm Beddit. Combining an app with a sensor strip that lies beneath the bed sheet, it uses ballistocardiography to monitor your movement. After two US partnerships failed in 2006 and 2012, the firm now has $3m (£2m) to fund expansion.
