MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY FOR INNOVATIVE DIAGNOSTICS

INSOMNIA - The most prevalent and undiagnosed Sleep Disorder

30% of the adult population suffer from insomnia compared to 3-5 % OSAS.*

The Home Sleep Test (HST) device is a cost effective, easy to use home-based sleep screener to determine sleep stages, sleep disturbances and resulting sleep fragmentation by cortical arousals.

Thanks to it’s compact design and minimal wiring, the application is very simple. The HST reliably records EEG, EOG, EMG, impedance, ambient light, activity, position and sound for snoring detection.

The HOME SLEEP TEST – explained in 2 minutes

Efficient & affordable insomnia screening 

  • Objective determination of sleep stages
  • Recording of EEG/EOG, EMG, continuous impedance, light, activity, position, sound (snoring)
  • Easy application in the patient’s home 
  • Detection of cortical arousals and sleep fragmentation
  • Cloud based analysis software, AASM-compliant analysis and report templates (encrypted data transfer)
  • Recording of multiple nights 

„INSOMNIA - THE MOST
PREVALENT & UNDIAGNOSED
SLEEP DISORDER.“

Insomnia affects between 30-45% of the adult population*

CONVENIENT SLEEP RECORDING AT HOME

Recording Workflow

THE DOCTOR

The patient is given the Home Sleep Test (HST) to pre-screen for any potential underlying sleep disorder, especially insomnia.

THE PATIENT

The HST is so easy to use that the sensor can be applied by the patient in the comfort of their own home.

THE TABLET

The tablet will guide the patient through the sensor application. When the test starts, the tablet records all the data, that the sensor transfers via Bluetooth.

THE CLOUD

As soon as the sleep study is finished, the data will be transferred for analysis from the tablet to our cloud platform.

THE REPORT

The measurement is processed and a report will be made available. The scoring is verified by the doctor based on the recorded signal data.

EXPERTS' OPINIONS

Dr. Hans-Günter Weeß:
“The SOMNOmedics Home Sleep Test is a good way to obtain objective data on sleep quality outside the sleep laboratory and information on the cause of insomnia at the first two stages of treatment. Thus, treatment and cost-intensive methods in the sleep laboratory can be preserved and patients can be treated more quickly.”

Dr. Holger Hein:
“In addition to a detailed anamnesis and the collection of subjective sleep data by questionnaires and a sleep protocol lasting several weeks, a measurement of sleep stages is also indispensable for the accurate diagnosis of insomnia. Best in the usual conditions, so at home. With the Home Sleep Test from SOMNOmedics, there is a good procedure that is easy to use by the patient himself and which provides valid data fast and reliable.”

APPLICATION OF THE HOME SLEEP TEST

RECORDED SIGNALS

EEG* – Frontopolar application Fp1:M1 

EOG – Left/right eye movement 

EMG – Muscle tone

* Two additional EEG signals are available for display in the software

CONTINUOUS IMPEDANCE
To determine signal quality during the duration of the recording

IMPEDANCE

SOUND
Detection of snore and snore rhythm

_ Supine position

SOUND

POSITION
Detection of head position
 
ACTIVITY
Head movement

A = upright , Re = right,
Li = left, = supine

Tablet

The tablet will guide the patient through the sensor application. After starting the test, all data from the sensor are recorded on the tablet via Bluetooth. 

Cloud

As soon as the sleep study is finished, the data will be transferred for analysis from the tablet to our cloud platform.

Sleep report

The measurement is processed and a report is provided. The recorded data should be verified by a physician.
