Grass-Telefactor, West Warwick, RI, an Astro-Med Inc. Product Group, has introduced a lightweight, compact wireless polysomnographic (PSG) system for sleep studies.  Designated AURA® PSG, the system is designed to offer maximum patient comfort without sacrificing reliability in rugged applications.  Using built-in Bluetooth™ technology, the 25-channel system can transmit PSG data to a computer without the patient being tethered with wires to the bed. If the patient needs to get up during the night, recording can still continue uninterrupted. The unit is powered by a rechargeable battery pack.

The Grass-Telefactor Product Group of Astro-Med Inc designs, manufactures, and sells advanced  systems for PSG EEG, long-term epilepsy monitoring, and OR/ICU neuromonitoring, as well as supplies, accessories, and a broad range of products for neurophysiological research.
