I think both the Zeo and (accelerometer) movement based smartphone apps are worth investigating for differentiating between full sleep and wake cycles..

But there is no (cheap) way of determining REM as of yet..

A small accelerometer placed near the eyes would help stage REM properly with other frontal EEG signals. Would be awesome if Zeo tried this with their next generation headset.

Best idea I can come up without resorting to serious electronics hacking is the circuit board out of a cheap nintendo Wii nunchuck, and an arduino development board or similar. I think this is too big and uncomfortable to wear on the head.. but could have other uses (I was thinking movement belt for the chest)
I bet we could invent a cage thing that went round your head, complete with accelerometer, brainwave sensor, video feed back, microphone (for the snoring dB) humidifier, .....

.....and a tennis ball fixed on somewhere so you cannot roll on to your back

The Intellipap requires an extra purchase of a smartlink module before it will record data. Be sure to consider the cost of all the parts you need, including the humidifier.

It does not record waveform data, so the data is much less valuable than the PRS1 and S9 machines.

Just an incidental note on the Intellipap..

I'm in the middle of hacking the realtime flow waveform, pressure and leak graphs out for Intellipap.. All that's needed one day will be a cheap PC to connect to (say a netbook, or spare heap of junk), and the serial cable..

It could scan every available drive letter after D: on windows, everything under /media on Linux, and wherever Mac's mount their media cards.. (can anyone tell me where that is on a Mac?)

I just don't want to take away the flexibility to import from whatever folder we please.

If I did that, the import list could potentially be removed.. ? (It's a troublemaker code-wise)

I think this is what you are asking about. You will find attached a screen shot of the Mac Disk Utility. It showed the SD Card for my Philips Respironics System One APAP Machine is in geek speak "/Volumes/NO NAME"

Hope that is what you are looking for.

Why Windows protects apps data folders from themselves I don't know. Does not make sense to me.

I have some good news for Fisher & Paykel icon users.. Support is nearly completed Smile

http://sourceforge.net/projects/sleepyhead/files/Releases/Linux/

There's also a test installer I built using bitrock installer on Fedora, that may possibly work with other GNU/Linux platforms (as long as qt 4.7.4 libs are available)

I'm not sure when John last synced, but the Ubuntu ones may have my new F&P Icon code.

The company he works for requires a compliance report every 2 weeks. I know the resmed will do a summary report but if he has the same experience I do, the download is less than reliable with ReMed and right now I'm getting error messages and am unable to print or email a report. Since his reporting is critical to his employment, I'd be more comfortable with SleepyHead for the download. Only problem, I cant figure out hou to get a summary with the compliance data for his employer. Any ideas? Thanks
Hi, you just raised a very important issue.

In those circumstances, you really MUST use the reports generated by the commercial software.

I try my best, but I simply can not warrant the accuracy of data SleepyHead provides for any legal or medical use.

SleepyHead is only intended as a personal research tool.[/quote]
