AI-Enabled Device Emits Radio Waves to Wirelessly Monitor Sleep Patterns at Home

Around 50 million people in the U.S. suffer from sleep disorders. In order for physicians to diagnose these disorders, patients must spend a night in a sleep lab hooked up to electrodes and sensors, which can be unpleasant and nerve-racking. MIT researchers have now come up with a way to wirelessly capture data on sleep patterns from the comfort of a patient’s home. Their laptop-sized device bounces radio waves off a person, and a smart algorithm analyzes the signals to accurately decode the patient's sleep patterns. The device could allow experts to monitor someone’s sleep for weeks or months rather than once every few months in an overnight lab. Apart from enabling physicians to diagnose and study sleep disorders, they could also use it to understand how drugs or illnesses such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, and depression affect sleep quality. “D...
