This STTR project aims to commercialize a simple, robust, yet high-quality sleep physiological monitoring platform with the aim of helping PTSD and other veteran populations restore normal healthy circadian and sleep function. The core of the project focuses on developing the hardware device along with clinical trials using the device at VA locations to assess the data quality along with researching biomarkers and treatment strategies. Secondarily, the project also aims to develop the enabling tools for further uses of a high-quality, easy-to-use EEG/physiological sensor suite for both defense and civilian commercial medical applications. The Phase II sequential effort will finish the development of the hardware with the goal of producing a system suitable for submission as a FDA-compliant medical device. This involves designing and optimizing the novel patch-type form-factor for ease-of-use, durability signal quality and manufacturability. The hardware will be paired with custom developed mobile software. The system will be deployed in a clinical study at the VA to record sleep patterns on PTSD-veteran populations to assess the efficacy of our proposed intervention methods at restoring normal, healthy sleep patterns and quality of life.
