No Time For an In-Lab Sleep Study?

Life can be hectic, making it impossible to take time off to do an in-lab sleep study. That’s why there is something called a Home Sleep Study Device.

A sleep study device is a portable diagnostic device that uses innovative technology to ensure the accurate screening, detection, and follow-up of sleep apnea. Its ease of use is unparalleled in the marketplace and it is greatly complemented by the fact that sleep study device testing is done in the comfort of your own bedroom; an environment that best reflects the pattern of your sleeping habits.


  • The patient self-administers the home sleep study, allowing the patient sleep in the comfort of their own home.
  • Saves time from a patient’s busy schedule.
  • The cost of a home sleep test is only a fraction of the cost of an in-lab sleep study
  • Home sleep study can be especially advantageous to the home bound or elderly, who might need assistance from family members.

Home Sleep Study Unique Clinical Features:

  • Measures actual time that patient sleeps
  • Provide more of an accurate assessment of sleep apnea
  • RDI and AHI – special indices that determine the severity of sleep apnea
  • ODI (oxygen desaturation index, measurement of blood oxygen levels)
  • Heart rate, the heart beats per minute while the patient is sleeping
  • Body position during sleep
  • Snoring intensity.
  • Sleep stages
  • Sleep fragmentation
  • Sleep statistics
  • Measures the physiological signal that mirrors changes in the autonomic nervous system caused by respiratory disturbances during sleep.

The FDA-approved portable sleep apnea diagnostic device is an at-home sleep apnea test that uniquely uses finger-based physiology and innovative technology to enable simple and accurate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) testing while avoiding the complexity and discomfort associated with traditional air-flow based systems.

Thanks to its innovative use of technology, the home sleep device offers unparalleled performance, reliability and satisfaction.

The sleep device is worn like a simple wristwatch, with no need for belts, wires or nasal cannulas. The simple and intuitive use leads to outstanding compliance and accurate result.

How Does It Work?

The amount of time people sleep varies from person to person. The sleep study device is put on when you go to bed and runs 10 consecutive hours after turned on. You should take it off your wrist (without the need to be powered off) when you wake up in the morning and return it to the clinic for sleep data downloading.

Thanks to automated data analysis, you don’t have to wait to get your diagnosis. Once you return the sleep device to the center, you will receive an immediate detailed sleep report. This instantaneous report generation – compared to a lengthy wait in most hospital-based settings – allows you to initiate sleep apnea treatment quickly.
