A light-based wearable to detect sleep apnea

Sleep apnea, the disorder where normal breathing is disturbed during sleep, can negatively affect someone’s mental and physical health. In an Eindhoven MedTech Innovation Center (e/MTIC) research collaboration involving TU/e and the Kempenhaeghe Epilepsy and Sleep Center, Gabriele Papini has developed a way to monitor sleep apnea using a compact wrist-worn device that is comfortable to wear and can be used for long-term home monitoring. Papini defends his PhD thesis on February 18th at the department of Electrical Engineering.
