Our SOMNOwatch™ plus encases a digital triaxial accelerometer, ambient light sensor and event marker. The AUX input allows to connect extra sensors and modules with up to 8 channels to the base device, giving you various options to design your measurements according to your studies specific needs. Therefore the SOMNOwatch™ plus can become one of the smallest somnographs or respiratory screeners. We also offer longterm blood pressure recording, longterm EEG recording (1 channel or 6 channels) or even long term body core temperature recording. We are even able to design a completely new module for you, combining exisiting sensors to meet your studies requirements. Almost anything is possible – allowing you to gather specific data for your research.
With programable software allowing extensive customisation
Body position, 3 activity sensors (x, y, z-axis, magnitude), ambient light, patient marker with acoustic tone
Allowing up to 25 day study duration (depending on number of sensors attached)
Blood Pressure, respiratory analysis, 6 channel EEG, long term ear temperature and much much more
Over the complete measurement day by day – double plot for improved circadian analysis
The high frequency acquisition of movement data enables the SOMNOwatch™ plus to make a very accurate frequency analysis using FFT. The recording of tremor intensity and tremor frequency can be achieved over a long period of time. This parameter can be used for the medical diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson’s disease.
Applied to the ankle, the SOMNOwatch™ plus can continuously record Leg Movement for up to 5 nights. It can differentiate between the standing and lying position by using the integrated position sensor. With adjustable parameters, the software automatically recognizes PLM movement patterns and evaluates the PLM index. For RLS-rating (Restless Leg Syndrome) the Motor activity is quantified.
For an extended diagnosis the correlation of PLMs and Cortical Micro Arousals can be detected by using the EEG Derivation (optional).
For the detection of PLM on both legs, an external movement sensor can be fixed to the second leg, and work simultaneously with the SOMNOwatch™ plus.
The SOMNOwatch™ Plus is validated for the detection of periodic leg movements*.

SOMNOwatch™ plus can store the raw data from a single channel ECG for up to 250 hours. The correlation between Heart Rate, its Rhythm, Actigraphy and Body Position can give very interesting information for the diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases and help in patients rehabilitation.
Specifically designed for a cohort study in Germany
Allows a full respiratory screeing in a miniaturised device.
Reports: Sleep/Wake Report, SpO2 Report, Respiratory Report, Snoring Report
Can be used for Long Term EEG or ambulatory Sleep Scoring according to AASM (4 EEG + 2 EOG + 1 EMG)
With the Blood Pressure Module, you can record simultaneously:

How does it work?
Taking a one point calibration at the beginning of the sleep study allows us to `set` the software‘s algorithm – and measure blood pressure continuously throughout the measurement. Because every single pulse wave is detected, a continuous “Beat-to-Beat”- recording and analysis is possible. Reduce artifacts and increase the number of reliable data points – all in a continuous, non-invasive and non-reactive way.
