Onera Health, developer of a patch-based home sleep test, announced the formation of a medical advisory board ahead of SLEEP 2023, where the company will present two poster abstracts. 

The medical advisory board consists of Ludger Grote, MD, PhD, medical director of the Sleep Disorders Center at the Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg, Sweden; David White, MD, professor of medicine, part time, at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston and pulmonologist in Denver; and Hartmut Schneider, MD, PhD, associate professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore and medical director of the American Sleep Clinic in Frankfurt, Germany.  

“When we founded Onera in 2017, we set out to define a new gold standard in sleep diagnostics by building our solution on a strong scientific base. Today, we further strengthen that foundation with the formation of our medical advisory board,” says Ruben de Francisco, founder and CEO of Onera, in a release. “The insights and guidance from this respected and passionate group of advisors will be critical in ensuring that we remain rooted in science as we grow as a company. We are honored and excited to work closely with each of them and tap their unparalleled expertise.”

The board will convene regularly, with different topics being highlighted for discussion during each meeting to get comprehensive and constructive feedback on Onera’s technologies and solutions.

“I look forward to aligning with the expertise of my colleagues and adding to Onera’s clinical perspective and vision,” says Schneider, also chief medical officer and Onera co-founder, in a release. “Onera’s groundbreaking technology offers such great potential in our field at scale. Ensuring the delivery of clinical-grade data is vital to this opportunity. Alongside my fellow advisors, it is fantastic to work with an organization like Onera that puts scientific validation and the needs of patients and physicians at the heart of its innovative solutions. Sleep disturbances are linked to poorer overall health and chronic diseases. I believe Onera’s solution for conducting sleep studies in the patient’s home will provide physicians with the necessary tools to improve health outcomes beyond sleep.”

Furthermore, Onera will exhibit its solution and present its latest research at SLEEP 2023, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis from June 5-7, 2023 (Booth #934).
