HISTORY

Our Journey so far

As a company, Vitalthings has its roots in several years of dedicated product development in advanced sensor technology.

Our approach is built on digital services, machine learning, and sophisticated data processing. This initiative started taking shape in 2014 before the company was officially established in 2017.

2014

The Work Begins

The idea of a digital sleep monitor is conceived, and we commence research and development.

2017

First Prototype

Vitalthings is established, and the first prototype of Somnofy sees the light of day.

2018

Somnofy in Research

We receive funding from Innovation Norway, and collaboration with Olympiatoppen Norway and global companies commences. Development of precise algorithms for contactless sleep analysis begins.

2019

Somnofy in Healthcare

Somnofy is adopted as a digital night guard in nursing homes and eldercare. Continuous sleep analysis, monitoring of restlessness, and breathing with Somnofy provide safety for both residents and personnel.

2020

Validation of Somnofy was published in Sleep Medicine

Somnofy demonstrates accuracy close to polysomnography (PSG) for sleep phase mapping. Researchers state that this is the most precise tool in the market for contactless sleep analysis. Read more.

Progress in Medical Approval

To enhance patient safety, Vitalthings initiates the process of obtaining full medical approval for both the company and the product.

Validation of OSAS diagnosis is published

Vitalthings' technology shows significant potential for future contactless obstructive sleep apnea diagnosis. Read the publication in the Journal of Sensors here.

2021

Initiation of Clinical Trials as Medical Equipment

Vitalthings and Helse Nord-Trøndelag begin testing the technology as medical equipment. The study extends into the CPAP phase of treatment and is still ongoing.

2022

Vitalthings Collaborates with St. Olavs Hospital

Vitalthings wins the prestigious Autoskår project contract, issued by St. Olavs Hospital. Together, they are developing the future patient monitor for respiration monitoring and various other parameters.

2023

Vitalthings is ISO 13485:2016 certified

A substantial step for quality assurance in medical technology Learn more about ISO certification
