Effective sleep promotes proper rest.and reduces the load on the nervous system. Meanwhile, a sleep disorder that occurs in 42% of people can cause various diseases, including Alzheimer's disease. Laboratory tests are used to diagnose insomnia, but they are expensive and time consuming.
Scientists from the University of Massachusetts decided thisPhyjama smart pajamas, able to monitor various physical characteristics of their host (heart rate, pressure change, and even movement of a person during sleep), have developed the problem. The design of "smart" sleepwear is simple. A board equipped with a Bluetooth transmitter is attached to one of the buttons. On the surface of the standard pajamas, five thin polymeric flaps are attached, connected to each other and a “smart button” with silver-plated nylon threads sewn into the fabric. Information from sensor patches is transmitted to a button and then via Bluetooth to a smartphone or laptop.
The material of the sensory fabric is washable,mechanical damage and does not cause inconvenience to the user. A rough estimate of the cost of smart pajamas - from 100 to 200 dollars. It is planned to begin mass production within 2 years.
