Episode 06: Dulcie Madden of Mimo

Posted by Knar Bedian on Jul 12, 2017 2:50:16 PM

In this episode, our panel chats with Dulcie Madden, Co-Founder and CEO of Rest Devices. Rest Devices is the company behind Mimo, a baby activity tracker created to show parents their baby's sleep activity and monitor their movement on their smartphone or tablet. Using sensors that pick up on pressure, moisture, and movement, Mimo helps parents get a better understanding of their baby's sleep patterns. 

Our product strategists chatted with Dulcie to hear the story behind how she and her co-founders began the company and developed a product for parents and their young children. Dulcie explained some of their challenges and shared insights on little details—like the decisions for the placement of the sensor on the bodysuit and why they used a turtle shape. 

Hear about the future ambitions of Rest Devices, and learn about the thinking that went into creating the Mimo baby sleep tracker and the connected nursery.
