ResMed recently launched the S+, a noncontact, personal sleep monitoring device. ResMed now announces S+ availability through Apple retail stores in the United States and from the Apple Online Store. The free S+ by ResMed App now integrates with Apple HealthKit in iOS8 to give consumers an easy-to-read, daily snapshot of their overall health and fitness. The user report can also be shared with healthcare providers.
“By integrating S+ with HealthKit, we’re able to provide an easy way for Apple users to track, share, and improve their own sleep habits,” says Don Darkin, president, ResMed Sleep-Disordered Breathing business unit, in a release. “S+ is a sleek, portable, bedside device that tracks a person’s sleep. When paired with Apple HealthKit, S+ provides a daily sleep score that can be viewed and shared in the same manner as calories, steps walked, or miles ran.”
S+ by ResMed sends sleep results, such as sleep patterns over time, hours slept during particular sleep cycles, and nightly sleep scores from 0 to 100, directly to Apple’s Health App so the two become seamlessly integrated to give users a holistic view of their own sleep patterns and well-being. Should they choose to, S+ also offers consumers a quick and efficient way to share their sleep habits with physicians and healthcare providers.
