The aim of this paper is to design a device to record the conditions of the body in sleep apnea patients. For the diagnosis of sleep apnea usually the patient comes to a sleep lab and a sleep technician should always be in attendance and is responsible for attaching the electrodes to the patient and monitoring the patient during the study. The PSGs were analyzed for data on the respiratory disturbance index (RDI), time spent in each body position, number of apneic events in each position, oxygen saturation, and time spent in each stage of sleep. In this paper, we can measure the body movements and position with sensor attached to the body with sticky tape. This device is wireless and effective at limiting healthy subjects from sleeping in a supine position. Final results will be shown on the monitor and polysomnogram.
