About Cerebra Sleep System

The Cerebra Sleep System is an integrated diagnostic platform that acquires, transmits, analyzes and displays physiological signals from adult patients and then provides scoring (automatic and manual), editing and generating reports.

Using polysomnography, the Cerebra Sleep System records the electroencephalogram (EEG), electrooculogram (EOG), electrocardiogram (ECG), electromyogram (EMG), accelerometry, acoustic signals, nasal airflow, thoracic and abdomen respiratory effort, pulse rate and oxyhemoglobin saturation, depending on the sleep study configuration.

According to the FDA 510(k) summary letter, the Cerebra Sleep System is capable of collecting data required for level 2 PSG and level 3 HSAT studies.

The Cerebra Sleep System is available by prescription and is intended for use at home or in a health care facility. It is intended as a support tool to aid physicians and PSG technologists in the evaluation and diagnosis of sleep disorders.
