Date of Original Version



Sleep apnea is a prevalent and life-threatening problem, especially in infants. Napnea is a cost-effective neonatal (sleep) apnea detection system that aims to provide affordable alternative methods for continuous respiration monitoring and apnea detection. For infants diagnosed with sleep apnea, the current monitoring systems rely on sticky electrodes wired to a cardio-respiratory monitor or expensive smart devices. Napnea is a compact and affordable solution for apnea monitoring utilizing a soft, smart e-textile chest belt, integrated with a smartphone app.
