Abstract

The aim of this work is to propose a new approach to traditional sleep monitoring, in order to simplify the acquisition and the managing of the signals and to reduce the patient's discomfort during data acquisition. Signals are collected by a sensorized garment and transmitted to a central elaboration station. The results of the elaboration are made available to the sleep specialist through a web services organized internet portal. The sleep specialist is able to review the data, to write and store in a database a diagnosis and to suggest a treatment for the patient. The employment of a sensorized garment drops down costs for installation and maintenance of a dedicated sleep monitoring center. Moreover, the internet-based system proposed simplifies and speeds-up the retrieving and consultating of historical evidences.
