Veterans Find Relief from Nightmares with NightWare and Apple Watch adminJuly 28, 2023 Robert Guithues, pictured with his dog Moose, hopes that his story can help other veterans discover NightWare and find relief from nightmares brought on by PTSD. “There are so many times I’ve been notified one of my soldiers has died — they’ve taken their own life, and I know not being able to sleep was a huge part of that,” he says. “So I feel a responsibility to share my experience with NightWare because I can’t keep watching this happen knowing there’s something out there that could be helping them. If I can get this system into another soldier’s hands, I will feel like I’ve left something behind — I can take a knee and feel like I’ve done my part to help.” The nonprofit Semper Fi & America’s Fund has supported tens of thousands of wounded service members, veterans, and military families since its inception in 2003, and is helping to subsidize NightWare prescriptions for those without insurance coverage. Sue Baker has been a caseworker at the organization for more than a decade and has witnessed NightWare change lives. “I’ve seen so much relief and happiness from the veterans who we’ve helped to get this product,” says Baker. “And I would encourage any veteran out there who is wrestling with nightmares to give NightWare a try because there really is hope. Your life can be different, and there is something out there that I have seen work.” In combat, a soldier’s six o’clock position is directly behind them, and is the most vulnerable. The expression “I’ve got your six” means that one soldier is watching another’s back and they’re protected. “To me, this system is like the man in the foxhole next to me,” says Guithues. “I tell all the soldiers I know who are going through this, ‘Listen, NightWare has got your six. You don’t have to worry about it — it’s taken over the fight. You can rest now.’” *NightWare is a Class II medical device that delivers the NightWare therapy through a dedicated closed-system specially provisioned Apple Watch and iPhone. In this configuration, iPhone and Apple Watch functionality is limited to running the NightWare app. Story and photos by Apple. Reprinted with permission from Apple media relations.
