iSleep was founded to help people live and sleep better by improving access to affordable sleep solutions. iSleep provides a lower cost, streamlined approach to the diagnosis and treatment of sleep conditions. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can lead to constant fatigue and other serious health complications, including high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes, loss of work productivity and diminished quality of life.
Meet the Team
John Hickok, RPSGT
CEO and Founder
John is the founder of iSleep. Before founding iSleep, John worked in nearly every aspect of the traditional sleep center and began wondering why so many otherwise healthy individuals were forced to come into the sleep lab for an overnight test. Sleep facility tests are expensive, invasive and uncomfortable. The traditional sleep tests can also take weeks to schedule, resulting in delays of necessary treatment. John started iSleep to eliminate the burdens to testing, lower out of pocket costs, and ultimately improve health outcomes. John leads the iSleep team in taking an uncomfortable process and turning it into a retail experience with obsessive customer service.
