The First Home Sleep-Apnea Tracking Wristband Combining Confort and Medical Accuracy
What Is APNEABAND?
APNEAband is the first tracking device worn on the wrist, ensuring accurate real-time detection of sleep-apnea events.
Say goodbye to in-lab overnight tests with multiple sensors attached to the body. APNEAband brings a safe, easy-to-use, affordable and non-invasive solution to detect sleep apnea at home.
Embedded sensors in a comfortable wristband track the heart rate (HR), variation in the time interval between heartbeats (HRV), oxygen saturation levels and bioelectrical impedance. The combination of these four indicators helps any physician to make a complete and reliable sleep apnea diagnosis.
APNEAband has been designed to track breath related conditions and in particular obstructive sleep apnea and acute mountain sickness.
