When US Army veteran Patrick Skluzacek returned from Iraq in the mid-2000s, he suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, and began to have nightmares. “I was scared of closing my eyes,” Skluzacek told CNN. “They were just horrible, so vivid, I’d wake up thrashing and sweating.” So in 2015, his son Tyler created a smartwatch app that tracks, manages, and stops nightmares to help his father. He invented the application, now called NightWare, during his senior year at Macalester College. The device received FDA clearance in November and works by using a person’s heart rate and movement to detect when they are having a nightmare. It then emits gentle vibrations to pull them out of the nightmare without waking them up. Tap the link in our bio to learn more about NightWare.⁠
