Ipnos is the brainchild of two longtime friends, Simon Alex Bérubé and Philippe Lapierre. In 2006, Phil developed tinnitus after attending a rock concert, causing him insomnia problems. To mask the ringing noise, he tried listening to sounds he found on various apps, but the limited choices and features always left him frustrated. This set off the two friends – both software engineers – to develop a “digital antidote”, a solution to tinnitus and sleep problems. A few months of design brainstorming led them to a unique sound-mixing app concept and in 2009, BetterSleep (formerly Relax Melodies), the very first app of its kind, was born.
Ipnos is a mobile app development studio where wellness meets technology. It’s a multidisciplinary think tank of talented people who are passionate about well-being and technology.
