Disturbed sleep is a common problem that can impact negatively on health, causing reduced levels of concentration and poor performance as well as blood pressure and metabolic complaints. A good night's sleep is therefore important to renew strength and energy resources for the day ahead. Ulm-based healthcare specialist Beurer is now tackling this problem at the source. As part of the MEDICA 2015, Beurer will present - from 16 to 19 November 2015 in hall 12, stand A31 - the SE 80 SleepExpert – a sleep sensor, developed jointly with American firm EarlySense that allows users to optimally monitor their own sleep patterns. The new sensor records and evaluates sleep quality with a high degree of accuracy. The SE 80 SleepExpert can help users improve their personal sleep patterns.
The new SE 80 SleepExpert sleep sensor
The new sensor is a non-contact sensor for professional sleep recording in your home environment. Inconspicuously placed under the mattress, the device measures and analyses your personal sleeping habits. The device records how long it took you to get to sleep and frequency of waking as well as the actual duration of your sleep. Data on heart and breathing rate plus interruptions in your breathing is also captured.
The compatible SleepExpert app automatically records the measured values, enabling a precise sleep phase analysis including a sleep phase hypnogram. The easy-to-use sleep score display evaluates these results. The "Fresh Wake" function helps you wake up well-rested by ensuring you are not woken up if you are in the deep sleep phase. The user is also given personalised tips on improving sleep patterns. The digital sleep diary allows you to record your own values, personal notes, eating and drinking habits such as consumption of alcohol or caffeinated drinks plus physical activity.
