COVID-19 Shelter-in-Place: Impact on snoring

With the power of several million nights of PSG-grade sleep information anonymized in the cloud (over 100 million nights of sleep) and the built-in Sleeptracker®-AI analytics, we looked at the impact of COVID-19 on snoring.

One possibility may […]

Weekday Sleep Deficit by Age and Gender

We all live in a sleep-deprived society, regardless of age. In the graphic below, we studied sleep deficits from Fullpower’s PSG-level Sleeptracker AI platform. Of course, we should all sleep longer, but the reality of modern life is that we only have so much of a “sleep budget” given the constraints of family, work, social […]

Seasonal Correlation of Breathing Rate and Heart Rate Through the Night

This week at Fullpower, we continue to drill down our accurate multi-year data set that comprises 250+ million nights of sleep. We now discovered previously un-identified seasonal patterns correlating continuous Breathe and heart rate over a couple of years. The Fullpower Sleeptracker platform captures continuous breath and heart rate throughout the night. Seasonal changes occur […]
