AAN 2023 | Advancements in sleep monitoring technology

Emmanuel Mignot, MD, PhD, Stanford University School of Medicine, Palo Alto, CA, discusses the limitations and potential of sleep monitoring devices. While these devices are not perfect and may overestimate or underestimate sleep, they are helpful in tracking general sleep habits over time. Prof. Mignot believes that as technology progresses, these devices will become more reliable and comprehensive, eventually able to provide results comparable to traditional sleep studies. In the future wearable devices, such as oxygen-measuring rings, EEG headsets, and leg movement trackers, can be used jointly to monitor sleep and automatically analyze data through mobile applications. This interview took place at the American Academy of Neurology Annual Meeting 2023 in Boston, MA.
