Masimo has revealed a new health and wellness home monitoring solution, Masimo Sleep, designed to help consumers better understand the quality of their sleep. Masimo Sleep is fueled by the same expertise in signal processing and sensor development that drives the Masimo hospital products.
A Masimo Sleep user wears a sensor (for up to ten nights per sensor), while the Sleep app collects the user’s data using Masimo SET pulse oximetry to track changes in key vital signs during sleep. By analyzing oxygenation, heart rate, and respiratory rate overnight, Masimo Sleep can provide guidance to help users better understand, for example, why they may snore or wake up tired, and recommend ways for the user to improve the quality of their sleep, according to the company.
Masimo states that while other at-home products look at proxies for healthy sleep, like how often users roll over or the sound of breathing and snoring, Masimo Sleep relies on vital signs.
Joe Kiani, founder and CEO of Masimo, says in a release, “We are delighted to unveil Masimo Sleep as part of our line of direct-to-consumer solutions, which also includes the MightySat fingertip pulse oximeter. Based on our expertise in monitoring the physiological status of hundreds of millions of patients each year, Masimo Sleep significantly expands consumers’ ability to make healthier decisions, at home, by equipping them with what we believe is the best solution for this need.”
Masimo Sleep is not FDA 510(k) cleared. It is available as a general wellness product.
