Sleep Apnea Detection through Non-obtrusive Sleep Lab Monitoring

Oregon Health & Science University, Oregon, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

It is a patent pending sleep apnea detection software / system that is completely non-obtrusive. It involves using sensors in bed posts to monitor respiration, breathing and breathing cessations for use in sleep labs.

Primary Application Area: Medical Devices

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 6

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: Non invasive, non contact sleep monitoring will provide much more realistic data with more patient comfort, and auto detection systems are less variable than human interpretation of the data.
