Anti-OSA / Medical ring

Anti-OSA
Anti-OSA

Sleep apnea is a type of disease which affects life safety and sleep quality. The primary cause is the reduced blood oxygenation level caused by pauses in breathing during a sleep. The “Anti-OSA” proposes a design concept which is simple and friendly. The pulse oximetry (SPO2) is integrated into a wearable band which is highly comfortable. This achieves the goal of easily and accurately making a user wear a detection device on his/her palm so as to monitor the sleep status. Except for displaying information on the band, the monitoring information is synchronized to a tablet in the hand of the nursing/personal care attendant in real-time.
