Based on its recent analysis of the sleep tracking solutions market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes ResMed with the 2016 North American Product Leadership Award for sleep tracking solutions.

Frost & Sullivan believes the S+ by ResMed is the most advanced sleep tracking solution available to consumers today and the only non-contact solution. Sensors in the S+ bedside device track the user’s movements and respiratory patterns with less than a 1/10 of a millimeter sensitivity. ResMed’s system employs advanced algorithms to quantify both sleep duration and cycle with industry leading precision to provide users with reports comparing their sleep habits with the average and optimal patterns of people in the same gender and age group.

Unlike competing solutions that only track movement, the S+ by ResMed measures both movement and respiratory rate to determine if a user is awake or asleep. In addition, the system analyzes the depth or restfulness of sleep in each stage: light, REM, and deep. Plus, its radio frequency signals have a 4.5-foot cut-off distance, so that the device tracks only one subject’s sleep habits.

The S+ solution includes a device interfaced with a mobile app. The user places the device on a flat surface at arm’s length and facing his/her upper body. After a one-time set-up, the device syncs automatically with the mobile app when in range and uploads results to a cloud-based platform upon completion of a sleep session. When the app is on, it asks questions regarding the user’s daily activities, including physical activity, stress, and caffeine and alcohol intake, and immediately begins tracking the user’s respiration rate and movements.

“Upon receiving a stop command from the user on waking, the system delivers a personalized sleep hypnogram that depicts sleep stages during the night and generates a sleep score for comparison with a similar demographic group,” said Frost & Sullivan Global Director, Venkat Rajan. “It then offers personalized feedback based on the previous night’s data, helping users change their lifestyles for more restful sleep.”

ResMed designed the S+ system with a variety of features to help users fall sleep, stay asleep, and wake up at the optimal point during the sleep cycle:

• The Relax to Sleep function, which measures users’ respiratory rate, plays a relaxing sound that emulates their specific rhythm and then gradually slows down the sound’s pace to help users decelerate their respiration rate to fall asleep more quickly. The S+ device will turn the sound off when it senses the user is asleep.
• The Mind Clear function allows users to record a voice clip or easily write a note, helping users clear their minds of forgotten tasks or important comments.
• The Smart Alarm function allows users to set a 30-minute window for waking. The alarm gently wakes the user during light or REM sleep stages so that the user can wake up alert and rested. If users are in the deep sleep stage, the alarm will wake them lightly, allowing them to emerge gradually from deep sleep instead of jarring them with a loud alarm.
• The S+ Mentor provides personalized feedback regarding the user’s sleep habits. As the user’s sleep improves, the S+ Mentor reprioritizes feedback to help enhance sleep in other ways.

“Furthermore, the S+ device tracks room temperature and ambient light, enabling users to understand how environmental factors can also affect their sleep habits,” noted Rajan. “The S+ system can also identify trends in sleep patterns that could indicate a sleep disorder and will prompt users to consult a sleep specialist.”

ResMed has positioned itself strongly with its innovative and broad product portfolio, and richly deserves the 2016 North American Frost & Sullivan Product Leadership Award.
