Landstuhl Regional Medical Center is looking for participants located within the KMC who would like to try an innovative sound technology that may help them sleep. Participants will use the sound technology in the privacy of their own home, have their blood drawn and complete questionnaires during this four-week study. As compensation, participants will receive two $25 gift certificates. To be in the study, you must be a military health care beneficiary who is having difficulty sleeping, located in the KMC, eligible for health care at LRMC or its outlying clinics, 18 years or older and able to commit to four weeks.
