What is SleepCheck?

SleepCheck is a clinically accurate, hassle-free sleep apnoea (also spelled sleep apnea) screening test that checks your breathing and snore sounds during sleep.

Usually, sleep apnoea tests involve an overnight sleep study with a large number of sensors connected to your body.

With SleepCheck you can assess the risk of sleep apnoea in the comfort of your own bed. It will tell you if you need to talk to your doctor about a diagnostic sleep test.

SleepCheck is currently available in Europe (including the UK), Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Singapore.


Why should I take the SleepCheck test?

Sleep apnoea is a serious medical condition that can have a major impact on your life. Sleep apnoea is when air stops flowing to your lungs for ten seconds or longer during sleep. In some cases, this can happen more than 30 times per hour all night. This causes daytime tiredness, reduced productivity and an impaired immune system, and has been linked to serious complications such as heart disease, hypertension, stroke and type 2 diabetes.

Sleep apnoea affects more than three in every ten men, and nearly two in ten women. Studies have shown that 80% of people with sleep apnoea are undiagnosed.

How does the SleepCheck test work?

STEP 1

Once installed on your iPhone, provide your age, gender and neck size. This information is used to accurately assess your risk of obstructive sleep apnoea.

STEP 2

Set up your optimum sleeping environment and press record. Make sure you sleep alone; your phone is charging and on 'Do Not Disturb'.

STEP 3

Wake up to your results

When you wake up, tap and hold the 'Stop' button. Your analysis will be performed, and you’ll get your report.

Frequently Asked Questions

Anyone aged 18 years and over can take the SleepCheck test. If you, or someone you know experiences common symptoms of sleep apnoea such as loud snoring, difficulty breathing or staying asleep (insomnia), they should take the SleepCheck test. Other symptoms could include waking up with a dry mouth, headache, tiredness or excessive daytime sleepiness (hypersomnia).

The analysis process starts immediately after you stop the recording. It can take between 20-60 seconds to provide a result, depending on your iPhone device.

SleepCheck analyses your breathing and snore sounds during your sleep. The app’s built in algorithms then determine your apnoea hypopnoea index (AHI) number. The AHI is the number of pauses in your breathing that occur per hour that you sleep. SleepCheck uses this to provide an accurate assessment of your risk of sleep apnoea (low, medium, high or very high).

In a 308 patient clinical study, SleepCheck’s algorithms were shown to accurately identify obstructive sleep apnoea when compared to a simultaneous at-home comprehensive sleep study. The algorithms determine the apnoea hypopnoea index (AHI) during sleep. AHI is a measure of the number of pauses in breathing that a person experiences per hour of sleep. An AHI of 5/h is considered to be mild sleep apnoea, while an AHI greater than 30/h is considered severe.

Yes. Once you have purchased the SleepCheck app, you can take as many tests as you like.

There are plans to have SleepCheck on Android phones later this year. We will provide an update when this is finalised. Notify me when SleepCheck is available for Android.
