What is NITE investigating?
We want to understand how using sleep-measuring wearable devices (i.e. Fitbit and Dreem), with guidance for how to interpret their data, may improve insomnia symptoms and treatment.
Why is NITE important?
Insomnia is a common sleep disorder that affects 9-30% of people. In addition to disrupted sleep, insomnia can reduce one’s quality of life and often coexists with other mental health difficulties such as depression and anxiety.
Sleep-measuring wearables, such as Fitbit, make it possible to view information about recorded sleep. However, these devices are not routinely used in insomnia treatment. Additionally, the devices often do not provide information about how to interpret the data.
Therefore, this study explores how incorporating sleep-measuring wearable devices, with guidance for interpreting data, may improve insomnia.
Participation from home during COVID-19
All components of participation can be completed from the comfort of your own home. Questionnaires are completed online, sleep sessions are internet delivered (e.g. Zoom), and disinfected equipment is mailed to you.
