As part of NEDO's startup innovator support project, Sustainable Medicine, Inc., has launched clinical studies of a smartphone app for treating insomnia based on cognitive behavior therapy beginning from September in collaboration with Seiwa Hospital and Kuwamizu Hospital. By verifying the effectiveness of the app, this project is expected to promote the dissemination of this new insomnia treatment, which works through cognitive behavior therapy and does not rely on the use of medicine.
