InTech Health is a UK company developing Sleepora:

  • A customisable and adaptive digital sleeping coach.
  • It is a preventative behaviour change technology.
  • It is designed to change user behaviour related to a health issue i.e. a sleeping disorder rather than a general healthy lifestyle advice app.
  • It is marketed as an app for aiding with good sleep habits.
  • We will be doing a feasibility study with NHS patients on the efficacy of Sleepora.
Sleepora - Sleep Better


You will be part of a Patients Advisory Group. Your role will be to give honest and constructive feedback on areas such as:

• Clarity of message within the app
• Ease of navigation around the app
• Which things you think are missing from the app
• Which things you think are not that necessary
• Generally, ways in which you think the app (and perhaps even the study) can be improved to benefit patients.

In essence your role is to give the patients’ perspective to the development of the programme focusing on helping to alleviate the symptoms of insomnia. The goal is to develop an enhanced programme and put that programme through a feasibility study.
