The most exhaustive

home sleep assessment

Sunrise is a sleep assessment device, used in conjunction with Sunrise SDDA software to aid in the detection of sleep-related breathing disorders, insomnia disorder, sleep/wake rhythm disorder, hypersomnia disorder, insufficient sleep syndrome and bruxism in adults (over 18 years old) with suspicions of sleep disorders

Can aid in the detection of sleep-related breathing disorders in children (from 3 to 17 years old) with suspicion of sleep apnea or habitual snoring

Intended to assist healthcare professional in their decision making, or in referral to further diagnostic assessment where required

"The performance of sunrise, not only favourably compares with,
but also, in many instances, surpasses the performance of
other fully automated diagnostic devices."

Pepin et al, JAMA Network Open, 2020.

Features

Sunrise technology captures the respiratory signal at its source.

DovePress

6561 respiratory events representing 46.2 hours of abnormal breathing disorders*

A major innovation in sleep medicine over the las 20 years, this technology has been validated by world-renowned experts. The activity of the upper airway muscles anchored on the mandibular jaw reflects the activation of brainstem respiratory and sleep centres, and their respective interactions.

"Our study demonstrates the high reliability of non-invasive recordings of mandibular movement for characterising respiratory effort during sleep."

Pepin et al, Nature and Science of Sleep, 2022

The muscle activity triggers specific mandibular movement patterns that might represent a powerful non-invasive tool for measuring respiratory effort across the diverse variety of respiratory events and different sleep stages.

Sunrise does not require traditional EEG, EOG and EMG signals typically used to determine changes in brain state during sleep stages or two belts to estimate respiratory effort. Instead, the study of small mandibular movement makes it possible to analyse the signals the brain sends during the night. Artificial intelligence interprets the amplitude and frequency of mandibular movements to identify from 30 and 10 second epochs: 

  • Sleep/Wake Patterns
  • Micro Arousals
  • Respiratory Effort

From the respiratory effort, represented by the amplitude of mandibular movements. Sunrise extracts the obstructive apnea and hypopnea events.

A sleep test shouldn’t be complicated

The brain plays a critical role in maintaining upper airway patency by contracting muscles which are attached to a mobile bone called the mandible.

The mandibular movements reveal the changes in the trigeminal motor nucleus activity driven by the brainstem centre. These mandibular movements are a direct proxy of how the sleeping centres in the brain regulate sleep and respiration, informing about the major events required for characterizing sleep apnea:

  • Robust and accurate measurement of Total Sleep Time 
  • Micro-arousals index 
  • Obstructive Apnea/hypopnea
  • Head position
  • Sleep staging1
  • Respiratory effort measurement (RERAs)1

2 The Sunrise sensor is intended to be used together with the Sunrise SDDA software to enable it to achieve the intended purpose by recording patient mandibular movements during sleep and sending recorded data to the Sunrise mobile application via Bluetooth. These data will be processed and analysed by the Sunrise SDDA software. The Sunrise sensor does not pursue a medical purpose on its own.
