Systems and methods for assessment of sleep quality in adults and children are provided. These techniques include an apparatus worn above the forehead containing the circuitry for collecting and storing physiological signals. The apparatus integrates with a sensor strip and a nasal mask to obtain the physiological signals for the user. The form factor of this apparatus is comfortable, easy to self-apply, and results in less data artifacts than conventional techniques for capturing physiological data for analyzing sleep quality. Neuro-respiratory signals are analyzed using means to extract more accurate definitions of the frequency and severity of sleep discontinuity, sleep disordered breathing and patterns of sleep architecture. Biological biomarkers and questionnaire responses can also be compared to a database of healthy and chronically diseased patients to provide a more accurate differential diagnosis and to help determine the appropriate disease management recommendations.

A dry gel-conductive sensor. In embodiments, the sensor comprises a scaffold structure which comprises a structure and a covering. A conductive material, which is both ionically and electronically conductive, may be dispersed within the structure. According to an embodiment, the covering comprises openings which allow conductive material through the covering to contact the skin of a subject. The covering may additionally or alternatively comprise brush-like features configured to penetrate through hair.

Adaptive performance trainer for guiding a user toward a psychophysiological state. In an embodiment, psychophysiological signal data is received from one or more sensors, and a current psychophysiological state of a user is determined based on the psychophysiological signal data. The current psychophysiological state is compared to one or more goal states, and one or more control signals are generated based on a difference between the current psychophysiological state and the one or more goal states. The control signal(s) cause one or more feedback devices to generate feedback to guide the user toward the one or more goal states. The feedback may comprise an indication to the user of the current psychophysiological state at a pace that replicates the users heartbeat.

Systems and methods for assessing compliance with position therapy. In an embodiment, position therapy is provided to a user while the user is wearing a position therapy device. The position therapy comprises, by the device, collecting positional data, determining positions of the user over a time period based on the positional data, and, when it is determined that the user is in a target position, providing feedback to the user to influence the user to change to a non-target position. In addition, the device stores a duration of use in its memory. The duration of use indicates a duration that the user has used the wearable position therapy device in each of one or more positions. An assessment of the users compliance with the position therapy is then provided based, at least in part, on the duration of use.

Photoplethysmography (PPG) is obtained using one red (e.g., 660 nm) and one infrared (e.g., 880 to 940 nm) light emitting diode with a single photo diode in combination with a pressure transducer thereby allowing both CVP and SpO2 to be measured simultaneously. The system also includes sensors capable of measuring position, angle and/or movement of the sensor or patient. Once the PPG signal is acquired, high pass adaptive and/or notch filtering can be used with one element of the filter from the red and infrared signals used to measure the arterial changes needed to compute SpO2 and the other element of the signal can be used to measure CVP changes.
