Tuesday, August 29, 2017

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., and WALTHAM, Mass. – EarlySense and SleepMed have partnered to improve the detection of and treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. EarlySense uses hospital-proven technology to, among other things, monitor disruptions throughout the night, including interrupted breathing. Now, when EarlySense captures interrupted breathing, its synched mobile app will send notifications to invite users to visit SleepMed’s website. There, users will find information on determining their level of sleep apnea and receive recommendations on next steps in treating their symptoms. "By collaborating with SleepMed, we are able to not only bring awareness to our users, but also offer an effective next step in identifying the extent of their sleep risk," said Avner Halperin, CEO of EarlySense. "Sleep disorders such as OSA affect over 20 million Americans each year. As this is such a significant health concern across the United States, it's a priority of ours to deliver to our users relevant and accurate data so they can be proactive in leading a healthier, more comfortable life."
