Animeos / Sleep-Arousal-System


A restful awakening depends on a special sleep structure. “Animeos” detects those by EEG as well as the reaction of the sleeper. The degree of awakeness is intensified by gentle animation. Both oversleeping caused by too low stimulation and too powerful rouse by an alarm will be excepted. The multi-sensuality not only increases the effectiveness, but also allows individual choices and separate stimulation of partners. The assisting modules optimize the sleep process and lead to a peaceful awakening and an improved day condition.
