Thim claims it is the first wearable device which can improve sleep. The researchers behind this smart ring discovered you can train your body to fall asleep sooner if you experience the sensation of falling asleep over and over again. They call this technique sleep re-training.
The concept is simple. In their research, participants fall asleep and after 3-minutes are woken up. This gave participants the sensation of falling asleep, repeatedly, over a short period of time.
