OSCAR - anyway to get data from NightShift into OSCAR please?

OSCAR - anyway to get data from NightShift into OSCAR please?
I use a positional device called a NightShift, which vibrates and buzzes when I lie on my back.  I used this when my apnoea was first diagnosed, hoping to avoid getting a CPAP.    It definitely improved things,  and I decided to get a CPAP anyway to get the maximum improvement possible.

I had hoped that, with a CPAP, I would no longer need to worry about sleeping on my back.  I've learned, however, that my best nights are still when I avoid sleeping on my back, and so I now wear the NightShift as well as the CPAP (and my Wellue O2 ring!).

As well as the alarm/vibration,  the NightShift records my positions throughout the night.  I find the data really interesting,  and I often use a combination of my NightShift report and my Wellue data and the PrismaTS software (Thank you to this board for explaining how to set that p) to help me understand what's really going on.   

 I would love to be able to see all of this one place, rather than having to try and look at multiple sets of data.

Is it possible that OSCAR might be able to pull in NightShift data, please?   Currently I can only see it in the App or in PDF form.

Thanks for your help

RE: OSCAR - anyway to get data from NightShift into OSCAR please?
The 2 obstacles to your request are:
1. A PDF file is nothing more than a graphic format, like a .jpeg or a .png file. It has the ability to link multiple images together to form a multipage document. You would need to convert this to a text file. The text file would have to be formatted to allow for parsing of the data.

2. You are, so far, the only person requesting this device. Device development priority is usually given to the device that will benefit the most users.

With the above stated, OSCAR is an open source project. Everyone has the ability to download the source code and customize it to their needs.

Thank you, I had suspected that would be the case (on both counts). 
If there had been interest from others, I would have contacted the people who designed NightShift to see if there was anyway to get to the raw data.

Thanks for taking the time to reply

Your app almost certainly uses a Sqlite database... OSCAR has an importer for the Somnopose device, which sounds similar...

If you can export the Sqlite data and massage it to look like Somnopose data, that should do what you want --- maybe?

Thank you, that's really helpful.
I emailed NightShift thid morning to ask if there is a way I can access the data.

You can accomplish the same thing with the (paid) Android App "Torena." Install the app on an (old) android phone and place it on your belly. The app can be set to sound an alarm when lying in the wrong position.

The data from Torena can be imported and displayed in OSCAR and looks like this

Oh that sounds really interesting, thank you.
I've got an old android phone somewhere, so I will try that.
