Let's Give Everyone A Sleep Lab In Their Home

Sleep is a mystery. For a third of our lives, we close our eyes and are left wondering what happened. Knit's mission is to shed light on a crucial part of human development, physical health and mental health. Starting with kids, we are bringing the depth and accuracy of a sleep lab to your home to help families improve their child's sleep to be their best each day.  We will increase the awareness of the importance of sleep in order prevent the many chronic issues poor sleep is linked to -- ADHD, diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer's, obesity, depression, learning disabilities and many more.  We will provide an experience that is designed for families, provides evidence backed by science and insights that you can act on.  


a new era in understanding sleep

Using current research methods, sleep science is challenged -- with limited data and single night snapshots. Our platform has the potential to help science in understanding why we sleep, how much we need and how to personalize our sleep needs...for millions. We will unlock a new understanding of sleep by combining a community of leading experts and passionate parents with deep learning technology that is accessible to all. Together with families like yours, we can weave a shared fabric of knowledge around sleep and change the course of sleep health.
