Redwood City, California – MobileSleepDoc, LLC is delighted to announce the release of ‘MobileSleepDoc,’ a healthy lifestyle application designed specifically for people who experience problems achieving a peaceful night’s sleep. ‘MobileSleepDoc’ is available now, free of charge, from iTunes, with an in-app purchase of the expert version available at $2.99.
‘MobileSleepDoc’ is designed by a leading sleep specialist, and is an in-depth evaluation and treatment tool to assist people in getting a quality night’s rest. Many insomnia and sleep disorder patients around the world are often treated with prescribed drugs that don’t work effectively, leading to them losing faith and becoming ever more frustrated at their condition. A lack of knowledge around drugs’ side effects also fuels this. ‘MobileSleepDoc’ focusses primarily on behavioural therapy as the cornerstone of insomnia management, as well as other sleep disorders.
In contrast to hundreds of applications that profess to do cure sleeping problems solely using music, alarm clocks, or snoring meters, for example, ‘MobileSleepDoc’ takes a broad view of a person’s sleep issues, allowing users to build up a detailed picture of their problems, and then deal with them accordingly.
There are only a few thousand sleep specialists around the world, yet millions of people who suffer from a sleep disorder of some kind. It is estimated that in the U.S alone the ratio of specialists to people who need care and advice is 1:20,000. With such access to care difficult, ‘MobileSleepDoc’ allows an individual to understand their sleep patterns for themselves, using a detailed library of information that the application will then use to develop a treatment plan. ‘MobileSleepDoc’ is designed to educate users about sleep disorders as well as give advice on how to deal with them, meaning that people will retain the knowledge and confidence of how to deal with their problem should it ever afflict them again.
‘MobileSleepDoc’ can be used effectively both by members of the public and by medical professionals. With doctors shorter on time and higher on patient numbers than ever before, ‘MobileSleepDoc’ can be useful in the quick evaluation of patients as well as in initiating a suitable treatment. Should a medical professional believe that prescribed drugs are also necessary, then these medications can be given in conjunction with the suggested therapies featured in ‘MobileSleepDoc.’
Discussing the launch of ‘MobileSleepDoc,’ Melissa Lim, creator of the application said, “MobileSleepDoc was created to help people teach themselves how to sleep better, especially since access to specialist care, and advice, is often difficult. We aim to empower people to make their lives better, one night’s sleep at a time.”
MobileSleepDoc, LLC, have committed to donating 10% of the profits from ‘MobileSleepDoc’ to research into child sleep disorders and obesity. The application will be developed for release on Android platforms in March 2013.
