A new wireless sleep monitoring device that uses technology from BiancaMed, a company recently acquired by ResMed, has been released in Japan. The product, launched by BiancaMed partner Omron Healthcare, is a new wireless sleep monitoring device. The Omron Sleep Design HSL-101 is part of a new strategy by Omron, named "All for Healthcare."
The device uses ResMed technology to offer wireless, noncontact sleep monitoring, which in turn connects to health care support services in Japan. To use the Omron Sleep Design HSL-101, a patient places the device beside the bed. With ResMed’s noncontact sensing technology, the device measures sleep throughout the night and can report key sleep quality metrics, such as sleep onset time and total sleep time. In the morning, users can generate a full report on the night’s sleep with the push of a button. When the data are connected to the cloud as part of Omron’s Wellness Link service, a full picture of sleep health is provided, alongside a customized summary of health tips and advice.
