Thank you very much for your interest in our study! Researchers at the University of Toronto and the University Health Network are developing a mobile application (SOMNI) used with a wearable device to help teens increase the amount of sleep they achieve each night. We are looking for adolescents to try out the SOmNI app before we test it in a larger group. Your information is valuable and could help adolescents get more sleep in the future.


To be in this study you must be:

  • 13-17 years old
  • Enrolled in high school
  • Sleep less than 8 hours on school nights
  • Sleep in on weekends


Centre for Global eHealth Innovation,
4th Floor R. Fraser Elliot Building,
Toronto General Hospital.


You will be asked to use the SOMNI application along with a wearable device to track sleep data for a 4-week study. You will also be asked to use an actigraph (a wearable device worn on the wrist) for one week to track your sleep data. A research coordinator will meet with you at the start of the study to explain the application, as well as ask you to fill out a survey. At the end of the four week study, a research coordinator will meet with you again to ask you about your experience with SOMNI, including your likes, dislikes and overall satisfaction.

Participants will receive some travel reimbursements for study visits, and are eligible to receive gift cards as tokens of appreciation for participating in the study. The SOmNI study is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. For more information please contact the Principal Investigator, Robyn Stremler, RN, PhD at or 416-978-6925.
