WITHINGS UNVEILS SLEEP ANALYZER

Withings, a French pioneer of the connected health movement, announces Sleep Analyzer, an unobtrusive sleep tracker that utilizes the world’s most advanced sensors and technology to analyze sleep and detect sleep apnea, a highly prevalent and underdiagnosed disease. Available in the EU and U.K., after receiving CE marking for medical devices, Sleep Analyzer has been created in conjunction with sleep experts and clinically validated to provide medical-grade analysis and sleep apnea detection all from the comfort of the home. 

“Being able to detect sleep apnea with a non-invasive device at home is a game-changer and could drastically help to better diagnose it,” says Dr. Pierre Escourrou, Sleep Physician, Béclère Hospital, Paris.

One billion people are estimated to suffer from mild to severe sleep apnea, a serious condition that can lead to major health and cardiovascular issues. However, 8 out of 10 people don’t know they have it.[1] An abstract released in 2018 by ResMed, also noted that around 175 million Europeans have obstructive sleep apnea. Continuing Withings’ commitment to design connected health devices that are simple for people to use daily to track and identify major health conditions early, Sleep Analyzer is the first sleep apnea detection device that you do not need to wear. It is a sleep sensor that can bring medical-grade sleep apnea detection that is typically only found in a clinical setting to the home. 

“Withings once again shows that they want to be at the forefront when it comes to helping users gain control over their own and family's health. Now Withings are upgrading their sleep mat with Sleep Analyzer which gives the user even better opportunity to analyze their health in the Withings Health App. Sleep Analyzer is intuitive and with a one-time set up it provides the opportunity to analyze sleep whether the aim is to get better control of their general health, increase sports performance or take control over their sleep problems. "says Totte Lindén, Nordic Sales and Marketing Manager, RLVNT Distribution AB.

Outstanding sleep analysis

Sleep Analyzer is a sleek 25” x 7.5” mat that fits seamlessly under the mattress and after a one-time setup automatically provides an in-depth look at users’ nights. Like its predecessor, Withings Sleep, it uses a pneumatic sensor to measure respiratory rate, body movement and continuous heart rate to track users’ sleep cycles (deep, light, and REM) and cycle durations as well as users’ overall sleep duration and interruptions. Additionally, it uses the sound sensor to also detect snoring and share with users the number of snoring episodes they experience each night and their durations. The sound sensor has been clinically developed so it can only detect snoring sounds. Each morning, users can access their Sleep Score in the Health Mate app, which is a simple to understand interpretation of how well they slept that night before, based on sleep duration, depth regularity and interruptions among other indicators. Along with their Sleep Score, users can see all of their in-depth sleep data in the Health Mate app for each night as well as overarching trends and receive insights into how to better improve their overall sleep. All data collected by Sleep Analyzer can easily be shared with physicians through the Health Mate app.

Thanks to an IFTTT integration, users can create home automation scenarios to control lights, temperature and other smart devices just by getting in and out of bed. Withings sleep is compatible with Android and iOS.
