Withings recently made an announcement that the company would be releasing a new sleep monitoring gadget in Europe. The device is designed to go beneath the mattress, where it can even detect sleep apnea from its vantage point.
The product is an improved version of the company’s sleep monitoring mat, which has been on the market for some time. It is meant to be placed on the side of the bed at chest height, similar to its predecessor, which was developed for this purpose. There is nothing to put on or do at this point. After placing the mat, which measures 25 inches by 7.5 inches, beneath your covers, just plug it in.
The device will provide you with specific information on your sleep cycles when you first use it in the morning (deep, light, and REM). However, this is not the end of the story. There is a pneumatic sensor that monitors your body movement as well as your heart rate, and there is also a sensor that measures your respiration rate. The device also has a sound sensor that can detect snoring and report the number of snoring episodes (together with their lengths) that a user has throughout the course of a typical night.
The iOS and Android smartphone software will provide a sleep score for you first thing in the morning. This is a single number that provides you with information about how restful your sleep really was. In addition to that, there is a program known as the Sleep Smarter Program. You can use the information in this article to create a more healthy sleeping routine.
However, the most important piece of information is that the gadget has been approved by the medical community for the diagnosis of sleep apnea. Because of this, it is the first non-invasive sensor in the world that is capable of detecting the condition.
For the benefit of those who aren’t aware, sleep apnea is characterized by pauses in breathing or bouts of shallow breathing when the individual is sleeping. These episodes may range anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes, and they occur many times throughout the night. It is possible that a choking or snorting sound may be heard when regular breathing is resumed. Some people are so severely affected by the illness that they are often startled awake over the course of each night. It is possible that it may put your life in danger.
The sleeping pad also has interaction with the service IFTTT, which allows some tasks to be automated. This feature is intended for the tech-savvy individuals among us. Controlling the lights, the thermostat, and any other connected home gadgets is included in this.
In conclusion, the Sleep Analyzer seems to be an all-encompassing solution. It does not need you to press any buttons in order to gather data while it slumbers peacefully below your mattress. This is just what you expect to see with a gadget of this kind.
After receiving the CE designation for medical devices, Withings has made the sleep map accessible for purchase on their website as of today. The price in the EU is €129.95, whereas in the UK it is £119.95. Those on the other side of the pond who are interested in the findings of the sleep lab at home will have to wait a little bit longer. After obtaining permission from the FDA, the Sleep Analyzer will be made available for purchase in the United States.
