Nanit for Research

Nanit has created the world’s top in-home infant sleep monitoring device. Our algorithms were developed in collaboration with the world’s top pediatric sleep researchers to provide families the most accurate sleep information about their babies.

Our cameras are also used by researchers around the world who want a non-invasive way to collect longitudinal sleep data on subjects without any discomfort to the baby or effort by the parent.

Nanit is a simple, reliable, inexpensive way to collect sleep data.

First-of-its-Kind Study Shows Increased Exposure to Touchscreens and TV Results in a Significant Impact on Infants' Sleep

The effects of screens on children's sleep have been a focus of public health concern for decades. With screen time on the rise due to the coronavirus pandemic there is renewed attention on its impact on children and babies. A new study that will be published in an upcoming issue of SLEEP, found that infants as young as 3-months old may be more vulnerable to the effects of touchscreens.
