"SleepStrip was first product based on our technology platform, "said Hadas. "We integrate a physiological sensor with real-time analysis and display of the electrochemical signal.
It integrates all in one device. SleepStrip is a demonstration. But you can take this model in many directions. " "We just enter the BiteStrip which follows the same concept.
