Frequently asked questions

Obstructive sleep apnoea is a serious respiratory condition that causes sufferers to repeatedly stop breathing while they are asleep, usually due to obstruction of the airway. The main symptoms include loud snoring, making choking noises while you sleep, or feeling very tired during the day. It can affect people of any age or gender. Lifestyle factors such as smoking, being overweight, and a lack of exercise can all increase the risk of sleep apnoea. Sleep apnoea can have serious health implications if left untreated, so you should contact your doctor if you are concerned.

AcuPebble SA100 works on the principle of acoustic sensing of physiological body sounds, such as respiratory and cardiac processes. Our algorithms process the recorded signals to extract information for a sleep apnoea diagnosis.

AcuPebble SA100 is CE marked for use with patients aged 18-70 for the automated diagnosis of sleep apnoea. You should not use the device if you are allergic to acrylate, as you may have an allergic reaction to the adhesive used to hold the sensor in place.
