LOOKEE® is a team of dedicated professionals who have found incredible benefit and value in technological innovation for health, well-being, and improving quality of life.
We believe everyone has the right to a restful night’s sleep and in the battle against sleep apnea, millions have been left out in the cold. Relying on basic CPAP treatments isn’t enough. And that’s why LOOKEE® was founded.
A Letter from Our Founder and CEO
Hi, I’m Joe, CEO and Founder of LOOKEE® Tech. I have spent more than two decades immersed in the technology industry. Several years ago, I was diagnosed with sleep apnea. Immediately, I became one of the millions of people around the world suddenly dependent on CPAP treatments.
Unfortunately, though my AHI numbers were down, nothing was improving. I still woke up exhausted, my chest hurt, and nothing seemed to improve.
My first doctor said there was nothing more he could do for me, so I changed doctors. That second one helped me understand more about oxygen levels and heart rate during sleep. She made all the difference for me then and how my focus on the future was shaped.
I was fitted with a finger clip oximeter to monitor those key vitals through the night, but I found it painful, cumbersome, and partly ineffective. The first night it slipped off my finger, giving me only partial data.
As a tech guy, I knew there had to be a better option. Unfortunately, after digging into the technology at that time, there wasn’t. Not yet. That’s when I knew I had to create it. I wasn’t alone in feeling this way. One of millions of CPAP treatment patients, I believed there had to be a better way.
Along with my team of veteran developers, we created the first prototype pretty quickly. I used it and was finally able to track my oxygen levels and heart rate throughout the night.
I found that though my oxygen saturation levels weren’t dropping too much, thanks to the CPAP treatment, my average O2 level was still low, compared to what’s considered healthy. That’s when I began adjusting the CPAP device, based on the real-time readings this new prototype was giving me. After a week with the new adjustments, I felt great! I was so relaxed and refreshed!
But I knew this ‘device’ wasn’t a ‘medical device.’ So, I took all this information to my doctor. She was impressed. She noted that this was amazing!
Once a lab verified the data I had been getting, I was looking to refine this monitoring device soother people could benefit as well. Having that data on hand, in real-time, allowed me to make vital adjustments to the CPAP mask and levels. It made all the difference in the world!
Now I want to help millions of other people overcome sleep apnea, whether they rely on CPAP treatments currently or not. Offering a simple and effective way to monitor your key vitals while you sleep, you’ll be able to adjust the necessary aspects of your position, CPAP mask, or levels to feel as refreshed, relaxed, and rejuvenated as I now, finally do!
With a phenomenal team of developers, engineers with extensive knowledge of healthcare, and exceptional marketers, we’ve brought to market devices that help people live healthier, more vibrant lives because of proper restful sleep!
Already incredibly successful, customers continually tell us how LOOKEE has ‘saved’ their lives. I know now exactly what they mean. After three years using CPAP treatments, I began to develop some serious side effects.
Because of repeatedly breathing air into that mask night after night for years, it caused my allergies to worsen, creating more nasal congestion and that was making it much tougher to breathe! The very thing CPAP is supposed to help me do was actually making it tougher over time!
After one extremely difficult night struggling to breathe, I woke up with a major headache and chest pain. My sleep doctor said my heart was stressed during sleep. That’s when I had to take the CPAP mask off and instead, put on the LOOKEE® Sleep Monitor.
This helped alert me when my blood oxygen saturation level dropped. Then I was able to shift my position, breathe better, and sleep more soundly.
As a result, I really began to get a better night’s rest. And I now truly understand what so many other LOOKEE® users have been telling me: our products are lifesavers!
We are honored to have created a revolutionary technology and are even more encouraged to learn that many of our customers are physicians or otherwise work within the healthcare industry in some capacity.
We will continue to strive to create powerful, effective devices to help you, our neighbors, our friends, our family live healthier lives. A great life starts with a good night’s sleep.
LOOKEE® Tech is where Healthcare meets Technology and we aim to help more people who deal with health issues like me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story. I’m eager to hear your stories as well.
