From Metaverse to Trillion Sleep Economy, Umons Breaks the Boundary of Brain Interface Applications

Modern sleep problems seem to be getting worse every year.

According to the “China Sleep Report 2022” survey, in the past ten years, Chinese people fell asleep 2 hours later, and theirsleep time decreased by about 1.5 hours. At present, only 35% of people can sleep 8 hours a day, and about 15% of people have sleep disorders. Disease requires treatment.

This also makes more people pay attention and try to improve their sleep problems.

According to the “2022 Online Sleep Consumption Report” released by JD.com, the transaction value of online sleep aid products in 2021 will increase by 53% year-on-year. “Sleep aid” is considered to be an important key to solving the problem. There are endless sleep aid methods such as bedding, sleep aid spray, sleep aid aromatherapy, etc. Because the factors that cause sleep disorders are often different, even with the help of various sleep aid methods Nor does it work for everyone.

Sleep disorders have become a growing social and medical problem. Mildly, it will lead to poor spirits and low work efficiency during the day; serious sleep disorders will bring many physical or mental diseases, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, tumor incidence and chronic pain. Many people with sleep disorders began to look deeper into the reasons.

Sleep problems lack more scientific and convenient dismantling

According to the research on sleep by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, sleep is a process of dynamic brain changes. Generally speaking, people are concerned about the length of four indicators of sleep onset latency, deep sleep, light sleep, and rapid eye movement period.

Some people use sleep recording apps, smart bracelets and other monitoring methods to monitor sleep duration or sleep quality, while the “non-contact” sensors of the above devices can only collect sleep data such as body movement, heart rate, and snoring, and the evaluation results are relatively simple and simple. The core standard, brain waves, cannot be monitored, so it is difficult to perform accurate sleep staging and sleep problem analysis.

In modern sleep medicine, there is an important examination technology, which is considered as the “gold standard” for diagnosing various sleep disorders related diseases – polysomnography (PSG) , which can record the EEG, ECG, respiration of patients during sleep , blood oxygen, activity, and other bodily functions. Although this technology is highly accurate, it is complicated to operate and is commonly used in hospitals and sleep institutions. It has limitations in application scenarios and reduces the efficiency of sleep monitoring in medical units to a certain extent.

For patients with mild sleep disorders or inconvenient medical treatment due to various other reasons, the need for more convenient and accurate wearable medical-grade sleep monitoring products is particularly urgent.

Brain interface, jumping out of the Metaverse and turning to sleep technology

There has been a wave of wearable health equipment technology at home and abroad. For example, Apple plans to add a blood sugar test function to the next-generation watch products, and Huawei and OPPO announced the establishment of a health laboratory. The development of wearable devices in the field of sleep monitoring is also making “sleep monitoring into thousands of households” a reality, which is expected to help people get rid of sleep troubles more efficiently, and the breakthrough appears in brain science and technology – brain-computer interconnection .

Brain science and technology has been constantly mentioned as a Metaverse concept, and it seems that it still maintains a long distance from the general public in application.

In fact, with the continuous exploration of brain structure and function in modern medicine, human beings have conducted in-depth research on brain functional areas such as movement, vision, hearing, and language. The brain-computer interface equipment analyzes the information of these brain regions after obtaining the information, and the related results are widely used in the fields of physical examination, diagnosis, screening and monitoring, treatment and rehabilitation of neurological and mental system diseases. The combination of brain-computer interaction and sleep monitoring promotes the industrialization of the former and the popularization of the latter.

Shenzhen Chuangda Yunrui Intelligent Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Yunrui Intelligence”) has developed a frontal sticker based on the gold standard of brain waves through brain-computer interface technology, after 5 years of R&D design, clinical development, and registration system development. Wearable sleep monitor – “UMindSleep Forehead Sleep Recorder”. The product includes high-precision data collection, uploading, analysis and feedback functions for many vital sign parameters such as EEG, blood oxygen, pulse rate, body position, and body movement. The reference basis for disease analysis, providing real-time and accurate sleep staging monitoring services for sub-healthy people and patients with sleep disorders.

At present, the product has passed the National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) medical device registration certification. In the future, it will greatly solve the pain points of difficulty in popularization and low efficiency in the domestic sleep health industry.

Song Yu, CTO of Yunrui Intelligence, believes: “At present, VR or AR devices are equivalent to an intermediary between consciousness and the virtual world. In the future, brain-computer interface technology can completely eliminate the intermediary, and human consciousness can be seamlessly integrated into the virtual world. The machine interface will be the final form of Metaverse interaction.

A new growth point for the trillion-dollar sleep economy

At present, Yunrui Intelligence has been widely deployed in the medical market and the household market.

In the medical market, Umonsi’s EEG sleep monitoring solution can realize network monitoring of sleep in the hospital and sleep monitoring and management of multiple wards/wards . With the integrated host equipment of information, it can meet the requirements of sleep monitoring for hundreds of people in the hospital at the same time, and the overall stage The accuracy rate reaches more than 97.67% of the average level of expert manual staging, which can provide doctors in the department with comprehensive sleep monitoring AI analysis reports and clinical auxiliary diagnosis reference opinions.

In the home market, Yunrui Intelligence recently released the new product “Sleep Cat’s Eye” of Umonsi, which has a weight of only 5.2g. Using a small smart terminal with the exclusive Umonsi APP, it can generate a sleep health assessment report. The evaluation report accurately records the parameters of the user’s sleep stage, EEG, snoring, body position and body movement, and provides users with a variety of intelligent experiences such as light sleep wake-up, family care, health warning, etc., which can help users better recognize Sleep awareness and early warning screening for sleep disorders.

In terms of creating a closed loop of sleep ecology, Yunrui Intelligence has joined hands with Yuyue Medical to jointly create an integrated solution for “diagnosis and treatment” of sleep disorders. In terms of industry-university-research cooperation, Yunrui Intelligence also participated in the national key “Research and Application of Neuroinformatics-Based Accurate Evaluation of Insomnia Disorders and Individualized Prevention and Treatment System”, led by Nanfang Hospital of Southern Medical University and jointly participated by nine other units. research project.

In addition, Yunrui Intelligence has won the title of “National High-tech Enterprise”, and published the first SCI paper “Data Augmentation for Deep Neural Networks Model in EEGClassification Task: A Review” in the journal frontiers in HumanNeuroscience. (“Enhanced Classification Tasks for EEG Data with Deep Neural Network Models: A Review”). In a number of biological information collection and analysis applications centered on brain waves, Yunrui Intelligent has applied for dozens of patents and over 100 intellectual property rights for its system equipment and AI algorithm analysis core technology.

According to Tianyancha, from the perspective of industry distribution, sleep economy-related enterprises are mostly distributed in the consumer life field (60%) and the medical and health field (42%) of the new industry. From the perspective of registered capital, over 60% of sleep economy-related enterprises have registered capital of less than 1 million.

It can be seen that China’s sleep market is still a new blue ocean that has not been fully developed and whose structure has not yet been determined. In the field of sleep medical devices, monitoring equipment is the front end of all data chains and occupies an important position in the industry chain.

According to iiMedia Research, from the perspective of the market size and forecast of China’s sleep economy industry from 2016 to 2021, the overall market size of China’s sleep economy has grown from 261.63 billion yuan to 377.86 billion yuan in 2016-2020, and it is expected to reach 417.32 billion yuan in 2021. billion, and it is expected to exceed one trillion by 2030.

In August last year, Yunrui Intelligent obtained tens of millions of yuan in strategic financing exclusively invested by Shengyu Investment, which further accelerated the company’s layout and development in the sleep monitoring market. As the public’s demands for improving sleep quality become more and more clear, with the deep integration of cutting-edge technologies such as brain-computer interconnection and sleep medicine, sleep monitoring will become a new growth point for the sleep industry and even China’s health consumption field.
