Project description:

NXT_SLEEP: next generation sleep monitoring

The NXT_SLEEP project aims to develop a next generation sleep monitoring platform that is less obtrusive and therefore more comfortable than the traditional methods, allowing recordings for more than one night in a home environment, and using new sensors that deliver complete and useful information regarding the physiological parameters relevant for sleep-related breathing disorders (such as snoring and sleep apnea).

Within the NXT_SLEEP project, CUO is responsible for the usability and the user experience research, in order to satisfy the needs of patients and doctors. The user requirements for the user interface of the NXT_SLEEP software will be formulated by mapping the current workflow in sleep labs. Then, a graphical user interface will be designed based on these user requirements. Eventually, this interface design will be evaluated together with the end users.
