Quantitative sleep analysis through the use of polysomnography is a well established standard. Finding new ways to approach this, especially over multiple nights, is becoming more important due to a growing recognition of adverse effects from poor sleep and sleep disorders. The Non-Invasive Analysis of Physiological Signals (NAPSTM) system is a ballistocardiography-based monitoring system developed to measure heart rate, breathing rate and musculoskeletal movement that shows promise as a… CONTINUE READING
