There were no validation studies on portable sleep devices under different ambient temperature, thus this study evaluated the validity of wrist Actiwatch2 (AW2) or SenseWear armband (SWA) against polysomnography (PSG) in different ambient temperatures. Nine healthy young participants (6 males, aged 23.3±4.1 y) underwent nine nights of study at ambient(More)
OBJECTIVE Digital game playing engages people for long periods of time. The pleasure offered by digital games may explain the players' consumption of this activity.

This study evaluated a manual method for detection of the rest interval in actigraph data collected with(More)
The fibers used in clothing and bedding have different thermal properties. This study aimed to investigate the influences of textile fabrics on sleep under different ambient temperature (T a) conditions. Seventeen healthy young participants (ten males) underwent nine nights of polysomnography testing including an adaptation night. Participants were(More)
