Help your patients sleep better!

somnio is a digital health application (DiGA) tested and approved by the German Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM).

somnio supports your patients with managing their sleep problems independently – fast, easy and scientifically sound. This can bridge long waiting periods for a therapy place.

In our 24-hour non-stop society, many people suffer from insomnia requiring treatment. Today, we view cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia with its self-effective techniques as a first-line therapy for insomnia in many case. Digital health applications such as somnio can help to make these effective techniques widely available in the field of sleep medicine.
