Replacing sleep labs: The first clinical grade home-based diagnostic of sleep disorders

Project description

Innovative, wearable solution for sleep disorder diagnosis

Sleep disorder represents an increasing burden for patients and a challenge for medical-grade sleep diagnosis. It is estimated that 80 % of people suffering from a sleep disorder remain undiagnosed, due to the high costs and time required for diagnosis as well as the specialised resources needed for existing clinical solutions. Recently developed simple screening devices provide limited and imprecise information about sleep quality. The EU-funded SOMNIO project proposes a wearable proprietary diagnostic solution: designed for use at home, it consists of comfortable adhesive patches that are non-intrusive and as simple to use as applying a bandage. Thanks to its innovative wireless sensors and machine learning algorithms, the solution is valuable for remote respiratory monitoring, and will help to relieve the already overcharged healthcare system.
