Philips uses its Singapore headquarters to open a sleep and respiratory education, reports The Nation.

The 102sqm facility is designed to accurately simulate a patient’s sleep journey – from a life-sized mock-up of a patient’s bedroom for sleep observation to a monitoring room where sleep technicians score and analyse sleep data, and a doctor’s consultation room. The innovative facility also uses virtual reality in an Interaction Room to simulate abnormal sleep patterns that may occur in a patient during a sleep study, such as limb movements, rapid eye movements and respiratory difficulties.
