Onera and its partners, the Technical University of Eindhoven and Kempenhaeghe, were awarded an R&D Grant from OP-ZUID to fund the partnership’s OP-SLEEP project.
The awarded three-year OP-ZUID grant will support the research and development of the world’s first patch-based, at-home medical-grade sleep diagnostic system.
Sleep has quickly become a public health issue across the globe. One in five people struggles with sleep. Whether it is insomnia, sleep apnea, narcolepsy or a host of other disorders, days are often spent exhausted and rundown, with an inability to focus. Poor sleep is also linked to many chronic diseases and conditions, including hypertension, type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease and depression.
The partnership’s OP SLEEP project’s goal is to update the information gathering science behind polysomnography (PSG); the combination of Onera’s patch technology and the partnership’s AI-based algorithms will create the solution used to help update and improve the diagnosis of sleep disorders.
