Rest Devices makes simple and human-centered devices that help keep people healthy and relaxed. We’re obsessed with making monitoring and data radically simple for people. Ultimately, we want every product we make to be as simple, comfortable, and accurate as humanly possible.
And from that, Mimo was made. Rest Devices was initially focused as a medical device development company, until parents started asking us if we could use our sensors to monitor their baby’s respiration. After a little bit of research and testing, we enthusiastically said yes! and haven’t looked back since.
We work to create products that parents can rely on and which can create better (and more!) rest for both a baby and his/her mom and dad. And, in addition, we have a ton of fun working with parents, kids, and babies to figure out how best we can help them; helping families with simple engineering solutions is pretty much the best job around.
Our smart, scrappy team is doing everything they can to create the best possible product for parents and their babies. And, we work with a lot of moms (and dads!) to make that happen.

Product Design Lead
Katy also holds a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from MIT, with a concentration in Control, Instrumentation, and Robotics. Her work has traveled wide and far, from low-cost diagnostic microscopy kits deployed in Mexico and the Dominican Republic to research on tunable-stiffness composites presented at an American Physics Society meeting. Katy's primary focus at Rest Devices is new product development.
Community Manager + Mimo Mom
Corrie Luongo has her Child Development Associate and a background in Early Childhood Education. In addition, she is mom to 3 young children Amelia, Violet and Callan, and married to Giuliano, her husband of 8 years.
