SleepMinder™ is the world's only non-contact low cost sleep and respiration monitor

o Accuracy: SleepMinder™ data is proven to be of the highest quality and comparable to the PSG gold standard data for both sleep apnea events as well as sleep/wake sequences;

o Cost: the product’s architecture with limited processing performed on the device itself and use of low-cost, off-the-shelf components makes it very cost-effective.

BiancaMed’s IP is protected by 8 patents (granted and pending) covering the basic ideas used in the product as well as more advanced specific innovations around sleep measurement. The proprietary algorithms used to translate the sensor signals into vital signs and sleep remain trade secrets but could also be patented.

Sleep Studies | BiancaMed

* The recordings were made in the unconstrained home environment under the supervision of Dr Monica Gonzalez of the Sleep Disorders Unit, Hospital Universitario Marques de Valdecilla, Santander Spain. Specifically relating to Sleep Apnea at the University of Essen, we validated the sensor’s ability to detect Sleep Apnea events. SleepMinder can distinguish patients with clinically significant SDB from normal subjects with an accuracy of 94%.


SleepMinder Research | BiancaMed

The SleepMinder™ technology is based on measurement of patient movement using reflected radio- waves off a person’s chest. As SleepMinder monitors respiratory effort it may be used to separate apnoea and hypopnoea events. SleepMinder™ can identify sleep/wake epochs with an 81.2% accuracy in normal adult subjects. The correlation of SleepMinder™ respiration rate to gold-standard measurements is 97.8.
