If you find something that you think works for you – whether music, audio books, food, drink or supplements - that’s great. But how do you know without data to prove it ? And how could you repeat it or adapt it when life changes?

Sleep is a function of the brain and that’s where we need to focus. That’s where Thought Beanie comes in.

Our mission, quite simply, is to help the world get the best night’s sleep possible.

The effect of inadequate sleep on our health and life expectancy are devastating

From a high of 8 hours per night in 1942 not one country gets close to what is still the medically recommended amount of sleep per night. The global average is 6.8.

Independent statistics confirm we are in the grip of a global sleep crisis

  • Increased risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke and type 2 diabetes.
  • Sleep loss can slow reaction time as much as being drunk when driving or working.
  • Collagen erosion with accelerated skin aging, weakened elasticity and puffy eyes.
  • Irritability and a generally more negative mood.
  • Unhappiness and depression.
  • Low sex drive and a lack of energy.
  • Problems with attention, concentration, memory and problem solving.
  • Weight gain, obesity and associated health issues.

Those who sleep fewer than 6 hours a night on average have a 13% higher mortality risk than those who get at least 7.

The Science of Better Sleep

Thought Beanie is the world’s only real word, real-time sleep solution.

Put simply, our HeadRest learns what works for you and helps you make the most of it, whatever your lifestyle .

When you’re ready to sleep simply pop on the lightweight mask, tell the Thought Beanie app what sort of sleep you need, when you’d like to wake up and away you go.

Patented EEG sensors then provide unparalleled quality and quantity of data on your brain’s activity before and during sleep.

They let you create your optimal pre-sleep routine – mapping how well music, audio books or other sounds send you to sleep and aligning it with what you’ve told the app you’ve eaten, drunk or done.

Discrete audio stimulation (micro-second bursts of almost inaudible white and pink noise) then optimises the specific type of sleep you need and reduces the chance its disturbed.

So you wake up refreshed after the best night’s sleep you’ve ever had. It’s as simple as that.

Better Sleep. By Design.

Wearing something on your head while sleeping isn’t for everyone. Some people swear by sleep masks. Others would prefer a headband.

Thought Beanie normally integrates invisibly and seamlessly into things you already wear on your head – but with Sleep we had to take a different approach, designing an entirely new piece of headwear you would want to wear whilst sleeping.

Through an exhaustive product design, prototyping and consumer testing process we’ve achieved that – creating an integrated headband with removable eye shade.

It’s made of comfortable, breathable textiles around a lightweight, sustainably sourced frame – with patent pending over the ear heat management and customisable external fabrics ... so you feel and look cool.
