life. SafetoSleep200, our cot size sleep and breath sensing mat -- support what
matters most to new parents -- providing their infant's breath and sleep
wellness analysis via an easy to use mobile application.
SafetoSleep200 is a revolutionary baby sleep and breath monitor that has
absolutely no wires so there's no risk of strangulation. Unlike other baby
breath monitors on the market, the SafetoSleep sensor emits no electromagnetic
fields that could harm your baby. Ospicon
System's patented optic fiber technology allows the SafetoSleep200 to deliver
the most accurate and sophisticated real-time breathing sensing and sleep
analysis so your infants can sleep safer. Our breath sensing accuracy has been
validated by Singapore's largest maternity hospital.
It is designed to
monitor the breathing of sleeping infants and alert parents if the infant's
breathing becomes irregular. New born infant from 0 -- 6 months typically
exhibits periodic breathing (no breathing gaps) which could result in reduced blood
oxygen levels that impede infant's growth, sensory and cognitive development.
During infant's early growth from 0 -- 24 months, their immune system is prone
to respiratory infection. Rapid breathing in infants can be utilized as an
early indication of respiratory illness. Ospicon System's unique BreathOpticsÔ technology allows the SafetoSleep mat to accurately detect such
periodic breathing and rapid breathing events. The SafetoSleep200 is designed
to be used with a complementary SafetoSleep app, which tracks and provides
parents with a comprehensive breath wellness alerts, reports and logs.
SafetoSleep200 also comes with an advanced ambient temperature and sound detection
sensor that monitors the baby's sleep environment. The sensor can accurately
and effectively pick up and measure the ambient temperature and noise levels in
a room. The SafetoSleep200 intelligently analyzes and plots a sound/temperature
trend graph every 5 minutes for parents and caregivers to understand whether
the sleep environment affects a baby's sleep quality.
SafetoSleep200 constantly monitors your baby around the clock ensuring parents will
have a complete peace of mind.
