Powerful, miniaturised, multi channel recorder

The SOMNOwatch™ plus is a powerful, miniaturised, multi channel recorder which is as comfortable and user-friendly as a watch.

As any multi-channel system, the SOMNOwatch™ plus can replace several devices while providing excellent signal quality.

SOMNOwatch Plus Technical Highlights

  • High resolution
  • 7 Internal channels
  • High Signal-to-Noise ratio
  • 2 color LED for better communication
  • Piezo tone generator built in (programmable)
  • 64 MB Storage capacity
  • Long recording time (up to 25 days)
  • Up to 8 external channels
  • Data Compression Mode

Tremor 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.

Analysis Software

  • Programmable, delayed auto start
  • Spectral Analysis to detect tremor
  • Easy determination of Frequency and Intensity in the Tremor Spectrum
  • Fast results output in a tabular or graphical format
  • Export to Microsoft EXCEL

PLM / RLS Recorder

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*.

FURTHER OPTIONS & FUNCTIONS

Extra Sensors (1-channel)
  • Pressure Sensor Flow / Snore – respiratory analysis with nasal cannula
  • 1-channel EEG – Sleep Scoring: Wake, REM, 1,2,3,4
  • 1-channel ECG – Long Term ECG measurement
  • PLM / EMG sensor

Thanks to the correlation of the measurement results of the additional sensors with actigraphy and body position, further information for exact diagnosis can be provided (for example with ECG for cardiovascular diseases).

How does it work?

SOMNOmedics uses an innovative patented algorithm to measure blood pressure via the Pulse Transit Time (PTT). The PTT is the time required for the pulse wave to propagate along the vessel wall between two defined points. In the case of the SOMNOtouch RESP – From the left ventricle of the heart (defined by the ´R´peak of the ECG) – to the detection of the pulse wave at the finger tip (detected by the plethysmograph).

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.
