IAI Awarded U.S. Army Follow-On Contract to Improve Sleep Hygiene of Patients with PTSD by Monitoring and Correcting for Circadian Rhythm Disruption

ROCKVILLE, Md. — Feb. 4, 2020 — Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded a follow-on contract by the U.S. Army to continue to help service members manage the symptoms of PTSD by providing methods to help reset circadian rhythm and improve sleep.

In this contract, IAI will develop a mobile app that uses custom wearables to measure light exposure and patient activity. Data collected by the app estimates circadian rhythm and provides recommendations to improve sleep hygiene with light therapies and other best practices. The system will enable health professionals to support patients and determine specific aspects of circadian disruption. Improving sleep cycles will help service members better manage other PTSD symptoms.

“IAI is proud to have been selected by the Army to support its research to help service members with PTSD,” said Vikram Manikonda, President and CEO of IAI.

IAI’s digital healthcare team creates mobile apps and sensors to gather data from patients outside of the clinical setting. Healthcare providers can improve patient outcomes by monitoring patient performance, improving adherence, and providing timely interventions throughout a patient’s healthcare regimen.
