By Harpreet Singh Rai, CEO of Oura
Just a year ago, we were bracing for the worst.
As a society, we were bound to our homes, living with uncertainty, and trying to comprehend the consequences of a global pandemic. COVID-19 exposed the vulnerabilities of health and the fragility of human life. Doctors, scientists, first-responders, and nurses searched for answers while providing much needed care. At Oura, we asked ourselves how we can help as a company during this time of need.
When I first sat down to write this, the world was different. What started as a purely celebratory post, is now an important note to acknowledge the hard and frightening times.
We’re living in a new realm as COVID-19 impacts people’s health, livelihood and wellbeing. Our hearts go out to everyone who is affected.
While it might be a strange time to talk about corporate milestones, we believe that sleep’s role in health and immunity is of the utmost importance and we hope to be able to continue our work in the days to come.
ŌURA Health is the company behind the health tech wearable, the Oura Ring, that provides actionable insights on sleep and its impact on overall health.
