Common Issues Being Solved With the Nox A1 PSG System
The company’s mission is to improve health by improving sleep diagnostic by making it more simple, efficient and comfortable in all patient groups, especially children.
In our aim to simplify sleep diagnostics, our engineering team identified multiple issues with traditional PSG systems which are available in the field. The intention of releasing the A1 system was to address many of these issues to advance sleep medicine in general. Examples of common issues with traditional PSG systems are:
- Equipment size and bulkiness
This makes many PSG system uncomfortable for patients and impractical for pediatric use.
- Tethered patients
In many cases, patients need to be tethered to the bed with electrodes, wires, and cables. This makes many patients uncomfortable and makes it difficult for them to use the restroom at night.
- Cables get tangled
Many PSG systems rely on long cables which easily get in the way of patients natural flow of movement. This makes patients uncomfortable and increases the risk of cables getting tangled and even pulled off the patients, increasing risk of lost studies.
- Lost studies
Do to complexities in setting up many traditional PSG systems and their reliance on a few key sensors, many studies are lost. Electrodes may fall off, the signal quality may deteriorate throughout the night or patients might lose sleep because of discomfort. Redoing sleep studies can be very expensive.
The Nox A1 PSG system addresses all of these common issues with multiple features. Below you will find a list of the key features and their benefits. After reviewing this list you will be able to understand the key benefits of the Nox A1 PSG System.
