1. Create user accounts 

In a web browser, sign in to to create user accounts.

Click your name in the upper right-hand corner and select Manage Users, or Manage Company then the Location you want to add users to.

If you don't invite your users to view their sleep data now, you can always do it later. 

Need to create multiple accounts?
Ask your Fatigue Science Account Manager for help, as they have the means to do this by uploading a .csv file containing lots of users.

2. Wake the ReadiBand

ReadiBands are shipped in factory sleep mode to preserve their battery. Before you can pair them with your users, you'll need to wake them.

Remove the pod from strap to expose USB connector
Firmly bend the strap away from the pod. Don't worry, they're durable. 

Plug the pod into any USB port (e.g. on a computer or phone charger) for a few seconds to wake
The pod can be plugged in screenside up or down. Depending on the USB port you're using, you may need to try both ways.  

Swipe to confirm it's awake
The screen should turn on briefly when you swipe down on the pod. 

If the screen doesn't turn on

  • ensure it's inserted squarely, and all the way into the USB port

  • try plugging it in the other way around, as it's possible it may have been inserted wrong side up for your USB connector

 Place the pod into a strap

ReadiBands that are available to be paired with a user will have a Pair Band To button in their row. Tap that and follow the prompts to choose the user the band is paired to.

Note: ReadiBands in factory sleep mode won't show up on this list. Make sure the ReadiBand(s) you'd like to pair are awake.

Trying to pair a band that's been previously paired?
If you're not seeing this ReadiBand on the list, it might still be paired. Here's how to unpair it.

5. Distribute each paired band to its associated user

The band will start recording sleep data as soon as it’s paired. It’s important that it's distributed and worn by the intended user shortly after pairing.

Include one of the participant inserts to orient your user around this device.
