Wearable Tech that Tracks Your Sleep
You can complete your sleep study in the comfort of your own home, thanks to innovative tracking technology like the SleepImage Ring.
If you’re looking for a solution for your sleep troubles, start by talking to the experienced team of sleep apnea dentists at Palermo Village Dental in Oakville.
We will walk you through the entire process and make sure you know everything there is to know about the SleepImage Ring, and how it can help you get on the road to a better night’s sleep.
What Is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a common condition several people experience, and it can cause life-threatening problems if it is left untreated. The term “apnea” means to stop breathing, which can happen while you’re sleeping if your airway becomes partially or completely obstructed.
Many people don’t realize they struggle with sleep apnea until a sleeping partner tells them.
If you experience snoring along with any of the following symptoms, we encourage you to have an assessment:
- Restless sleep
- Breathing pauses during sleep
- Gasping or choking at night
- Chest pain at night
- Disrupting your partner’s sleep
- Lowered sex drive
The SleepImage Study
As the saying goes, “a picture is worth 1,000 words.” And, the same rings true with your sleep habits. The best way to get the full picture of your sleeping patterns is to complete a sleep study.
The SleepImage Ring is an innovative wearable biometric device that monitors your sleep throughout the night.
While you’re catching Zz’s (or trying to), the FDA-approved wearable ring monitor records:
- How well you sleep
- How long you sleep
- If you experience sleep disorders
- Occurences of sleep apnea
- If your treatment is working
The wearable SleepImage Ring comfortably and conveniently fits on your finger and tracks your sleep patterns throughout the night. While you’re snoozing, the ring sends the data it collects to an app on your phone, which is then used by your sleep clinic dentist to assess your sleep.
SleepImage Mobile App
Most smartphones or tablets can run the SleepImage App, which is used to store the data gathered by the SleepImage Ring. Once the data is uploaded to your phone or tablet, you dentist will assess the information and help you find a solution for your sleeping troubles.
How it Works
If you are struggling with sleep and you think you may have sleep apnea, or if you are curious to see what your sleep habits show, get started with a trip to Palermo Village Dental’s sleep clinic.
First, we will want to speak with you to ensure you are a good candidate for the at-home sleep study and determine which type of sleep study is best for you.
Once you have your SleepImage Ring, you will go home to complete the sleep study over 2 nights, with a minimum sleep of 4 hours per night. If you snore, you will also need to download the Snorelab app to assess your snoring.
