Novelty Solution for Sleep Monitoring and Analysis
Night Train is the most accurate and advanced solution in the sleep analysis market. It has been developed in close collaboration with sleep researchers and professors at the Helsinki University and National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL). The core technology is patented.
Taking Night Train into Use
Night Train technology can be integrated into any device with a skin temperature sensor – this is the only hardware requirement. There are two ways of integrating Night Train:
- Technology integration with sleep monitoring algorithms and mobile application for iOS and Android
- Turn-key solution combining our cloud service with sleep monitoring algorithms, mobile application for iOS and Android
Example of natural sleep cycle
- Go to sleep at 10:30-10:45pm or 00:00-00:15am
- Wake-up at 6:00am-6:15am or 7:30-7:45:am
- Sleep train interval 88min
- Sleep time 7h 30min
- Fall asleep time 10:35pm
- Wake-up time at 6:10am
- Sleep scores 87
Thermoregulation as a Sleep Signaling System
Temperature and sleep are interrelated processes also known as the thermoregulation. The rhythms of distal skin temperature and sleep propensity vary inversely across day and night.
When surrounding light reduces, the pineal body starts to produce melatonin. Melatonin induces the sleep train which is measured very accurately from the distal skin temperature changes. Sleep train is a 20-30 minute time window to go to sleep. The changes in distal skin temperature determine also accurate fall asleep-time, different stages of a sleep, length of each sleep stage and the best time window to a wake-up in the morning.
The natural sleep cycle, the circadian rhythm, consists of five stages. Each sleep cycle lasts ca. 80-130 minutes with average sleep cycle length of about 90 minutes. An adult needs a minimum of four to five full sleep cycles every night. Any less will result in various effects for short- and long term well-being and health. Less than six or more than nine hours of sleep constantly introduce heightened risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, decreased immune functions, obesity, major depression, etc. 35% of adults in western world suffer from sleeping problems.
