Emfit QS, tarkkaa analyysia unesta

Emfit QS, tarkkaa analyysia unesta

Mulla on ollut kaksi kuukautta käytössä Emfit QS, joka analysoi unta todella tarkasti. Se mittaa sykkeen, sykevälivaihtelun, hengitystiheyden, liikkeet, hermoston tasapainoa, palautumista sekä unen laatua. Kyseessä on siis petarin tai patjan alle laitettava valkoinen sensori. Sensori on n. 7 x 60cm, mutta pehmeää materiaalia ja saa mm. rullattua reissuun mukaan. Virta laitteeseen tulee koko ajan, ja se on yhteydessä kodin langattomaan verkkoon. Lanzarotella liitin sen mun puhelimen wi-fiin, ja puhelimen puolestaan hotellin langattomaan verkkoon.

Monitor Heart Rate Variability While Sleeping

Monitor Heart Rate Variability While Sleeping

The Emfit QS sensor tucks under the mattress placed under the general location of the sleeper’s heart. A cord extends from the sensor to a WiFi transmission pod and then to power plug. The signals sent from the Emfit QS measure heart rate, heart rate variability, breathing rate, and movement. This data, represented by a ballistocardiogram, can be viewed on a smartphone, tablet, or computer.

Remember the fairy tale about the princess with the pea under her mattress? In the story, the pea ended up in a museum – and that is where it belongs, as its place in the bed can now be taken by a measurement sensor developed by the Finnish company Emfit hoping to slip one under every mattress by the late 2020s.

These sleep fairies are not just daydreamers: their sensors are already sold across the globe.

Emfit Announces World's First Recovery, Fatigue and Sleep Quality Tracker with Embedded 3G Cellular Data Module Designed for Athletes Who Travel

For quite some time we’ve been approached by a number of professional teams to develop a solution that can be easy to use while traveling. Most athletes are satisfied using Emfit QS Wi-Fi with their phones as a hot spot during travel because of its unique combination of all-night heart rate variability and always-automatic recording for accurately tracking recovery,” states Heikki Raisanen, CEO and Co-Founder at Emfit. “But some frequent travellers asked for ultimate ease of use. We were asked for a transportable, under-mattress sensor that required no phone pairing and charging, no matter where you are. We are able to do this with embedded 3G cellular data module in place of Wi-Fi. The perfect answer because the data Emfit QS provides is so valuable to a serious competitor that the small cost per month for a data SIM card feels like nothing. Especially when you get to a new resting place and can focus on the most important thing – sleep.

In the first of our interviews from the 2016 Wearable Technology Show, Andrew interviews Timo from Emfit to hear about the Emfit QS, which monitors sleep and gives detailed information on sleep quality and stress levels.

The proper way of tracking your sleep – Thoughts about Emfit QS

The proper way of tracking your sleep – Thoughts about Emfit QS

So far I’m very happy with my Emfit QS. It’s supposed to be the most accurate sleep tracking device out there that doesn’t involve sticking electrodes on your forehead. I will post an update in the next week or two for more thoughts.

Emfit QS - Heart-rate variability (HRV) enabled sleep tracker for athletes

Emfit QS is currently the only sleep tracking solution to offer a comprehensive way of monitoring an important biomarker known as heart-rate variability or HRV. In recent years, HRV has gained recognition not only as a general indicator of good health, but also as a metric that athletes can use to track performance and monitor recovery.

EMFIT QS Review: Full night HRV and Sleep Tracker For Athletes : Strap-Free

I’m impressed. I’m going to change how I do things with HRV. I’m going to get downstairs for my coffee 5 minutes earlier every day and only consult the EMFIT Oracle when I feel a little fatigued for that all-important TRAIN or NO-TRAIN decision.

EDIT: 1 year later in March 2017 I still use this. Awesome insights. There is a slightly revamped interface with better metrics and caching.

Need some help getting a good night’s sleep?

It has been shown in research studies that a person cannot very accurately report their own sleep quantity or quality. Emfit QS is the world’s first heart rate variability-enabled contactless sleep tracker. It is completely automatic, and installed in the bed under the mattress. When you go to sleep it automatically starts measuring and in the morning, the data is sent to your smartphone, tablet or computer.

Placed under the mattress, the Emfit QS sensor measures heart and breathing rates, tells you if you were restless or calm, how much light, deep and REM sleep you got, and is one of the first to log your heart rate variability (HRV), a measure that reveals how well you recovered during the night. It’s great for athletes trying to dial in their training and for regular folk optimizing their workouts. Deep sleep is when your body recovers; REM is when your mind recovers. Full recovery means you’re ready to hit it hard again. Long-term HRV trends show the effectiveness of your exercise and lifestyle activities on your wellness. $299.

Review: Emfit QS Schlaftracker

Review: Emfit QS Schlaftracker

Ich persönlich bin ich vom Emfit QS  ziemlich angetan, denn die technische Leistung und Genauigkeit ist für den Preis von 299 EUR (Stand: 18.04.16) einfach unglaublich! Wie es der Sensor schafft unter einer dicken Matratze so sensible Daten wie Herzfrequenz oder Atemzüge zu erfassen ist absolut faszinierend! Man erhält Daten, die so über einen tragbaren Schlaf- oder Activitytacker, überhaupt nicht möglich wären. Selbstverständlich ersetzt das Emfit QS keine Analyse aus dem Schlaflabor, kommt aber verdammt nah dran. Ein weitere Pluspunkt: ihr müsst kein Smart Device in der Nähe haben, da die Daten via Wlan an euren Emfit Account geschickt werden. Somit seid ihr komplett vom Handy unabhängig und könnt die Daten jederzeit über das Internet (z.B. von eurem Browser am PC ) abfragen.
