Abstract
We are proposing to develop a Doppler radar based portable sleep monitor for assessment and monitoring of sleep disorders associated with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). The proposed sleep monitor will include at least two respiratory variable, a cardiac variable, and activity level measurements. Based on these sensor outputs sleep quality will be assessed. Positive subject identification will also be provided in conjuction with warfighter RFID tags. This development effort would benefit Battle Casualty and Psychological Health Research addressing diagnosis, treatment, and mitigation of deployment related injuries and psychological health concerns.
