Complete Sleep Testing Devices

The process of learning if you may be suffering from sleep apnea is comfortable, convenient and easy. Our devices are cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to identify patients that suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea or Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome (UARS). The Apnea Risk Evaluation System (ARES™), Model 610 and our Nox-T3 Portable Sleep Monitor are indicated for use in the diagnostic evaluation by a physician of adult patients and children (Nox-T3 only) with possible sleep apnea. 

Our Home Sleep Test Devices can record and score your respiratory events during sleep (e.g., apneas, hypopneas, mixed apneas and flow limiting events). The device is designed for prescription use in home diagnosis of adults with possible sleep‐related breathing disorders. 

Our devices are sleep-wearable, wireless physiological recorders worn on the forehead that records up to 3 nights of sleep data. The Complete Sleep Test equipment measures blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), pulse rate, airflow (by the use of a nasal cannula), snoring levels, head movement and head position. When worn at home, a Home Sleep Test provides a better profile of the patient’s breathing during sleep in his/her normal environment. 

ARES Home Sleep Test Device

When worn in the home, the ARES provides a better profile of the patient's breathing during sleep in his/her normal environment. Audio and visual indicators notify the user when the ARES requires adjustment, thus increasing reliability of the device in the home. The small size of ARES allows it to be comfortably worn in all sleep positions.

 

 NOX-T3 Portable Sleep Monitor

The NOX-T3 is a full-featured type 3 device/type 4 size and complexity that allows up to 18 channels. It features a unique audio playback that lets you listen to the snoring signal beyond viewing it, pulse transit time/sleep time, and extended applicability to pediatric, dental, cardiologist and ENT patients. This device differs from the Ares, because it does not wrap around the head and is worn on your wrist and with an effort belt.
