Can this wearable spot if you have sleep apnoea?
Sleep is one of the most important aspects of our health but for many of us, getting those much-needed hours of shuteye is either difficult or all too often neglected.
Consistently good sleep benefits the entirety of a person’s health and wellbeing: ranging from emotional stability, improved brain function and is even linked to a decreased risk of certain illnesses such as heart and kidney disease.
In a world where work pressures, barrages of Facebook notifications or Netflix binge sessions take precedent over good quality sleep, it’s easy to understand why and how people are suffering from not getting enough rest.
Thankfully the range of wearable technologies available today can help users monitor and indeed correct their sleep cycles if one is inclined to do so.
One of the latest products on the market is Go2Sleep, a unique wearable that promises to monitor a range of sleep metrics including one which the developer states is an undiagnosed killer – sleep apnoea.
In the UK, it’s estimated that there are 1.5 million people with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), yet less than half of these (330,000) are thought to be receiving the treatment they need. There’s definitely a market for the condition, as research from the British Lung Foundation shows that investment in the diagnosis and treatment of OSA could save the NHS £28 million and prevent around 40,000 road traffic accidents every year.
Go2Sleep monitors the severity of OSA by how measuring how many times your breathing is affected over the course of an hour, otherwise known as the apnoea-hypopnoea index (AHI). The app displays how many times you’re affected during one night and boils it down in a simple to view graph which charts each incident.
The biggest benefit of Go2Sleep has to be its (almost) unobtrusive design and when compared to traditional bulky sleeping tests the device is a sure-fire winner for anyone wanting to assess their quality of sleep and indeed see if they may be suffering from OSA. Go2Sleep isn’t perfect but it stands out as a unique, though admittedly niche product amidst an industry in which wearables can often be seen as simply towing the line.
