works at nightk.

Why the braing?

During sleep, due to muscle relaxation, passage of air through the airways becomes more difficult. This causes oxygen deprivation in the body.

The brain, conscious of such breathing disturbances, restores air circulation by contracting the muscles of the upper respiratory tract. These muscles are attached to a mobile bone - the mandible. As a result of muscle contraction, the mandible performs minuscule movements.

Mandibular movements are, therefore, muscular adjustments regulated by the brain and directly recorded by Sunrise. Through the placement on your chin, we can see precisely what the brain does to keep you breathing and sleeping.

A 3 gram sensor displaying an unprecedented level of accuracy for home sleep testing technologies, comparable to test results obtained in professional sleep laboratories.

The clinical study involving 376 patients performed by a group of French, Belgian and American sleep experts, demonstrates unparalleled conformity of results between Sunrise measurements and polysomnography - the gold standard in sleep medicine diagnostics.

The graph demonstrates how closely related the Sunrise curve and the sleep laboratory measurements curves are.

Sunrise is a certified medical device.

What makesxSunrise
a certified medicalcdevice?

There is an actual difference between poorly regulated consumer goods and "certified medical devices" validated by law and used by doctors in their daily practice. Obtaining this certification takes several months of work.

  • 01. The European Commission sets out regulations necessary for obtaining a "medical device" certification.

  • 02. 52 notified bodies are in charge of verifying the development of the device and regulating quality over time.

  • 03. Such quality audits take place at least once a year2.

2 For diagnostic instruments (class 2a).

“Quality of sleep is a main health issue,
the damages caused to both patients and
health system are enormous.”

    Mandibular Movements are a Reliable Noninvasive Alternative to Esophageal Pressure for Measuring Respiratory Effort in Patients with Sleep Apnea Syndrome

    In OSA patients, MM signals facilitated the measurement of specific levels of RE associated with obstructive, central or mixed apneas and/or hypopneas. A high degree of similarity was observed with the PES gold-standard signal.

    Diagnosis of Sleep Apnoea Using a Mandibular Monitor and Machine Learning Analysis: One-Night Agreement Compared to in-Home Polysomnography

    The diagnosis of OSA, using MM with machine learning analysis, is comparable to manually scored in-home PSG. Therefore, this novel monitor could be a convenient diagnostic tool that can easily be used in the patients’ own home.
