SmartCap Validation – Independent assessment from Universidad de Chile
Further to the independent assessment of SmartCap performed by Monash University Accident Research Centre, Austin Health Department of Respiratory & Sleep Medicine and the Institute for Breathing & Sleep, a validation of the SmartCap Fatigue Monitoring technology has been completed by researchers in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Chile.
EdanSafe provided de-identified SmartCap data to Universidad de Chile researchers for the purposes of an independent assessment. In particular, the researchers focussed on identifying the extent to which the signals detected by SmartCap headwear matched clinical EEG, and also determining whether large data sets captured in a field setting reflected the circadian patterns expected.
I’m pleased to let you know that the study achieved both of these objectives. To paraphrase the findings:
- The SmartCap utilises signals that reliably represent EEG; and
- The SmartCap data, when analysed by time of day, adequately reflects the expected circadian patterns.
