Sleep interruptions: the new well-being insights

Nectarine Health app screens showing sleep interruptions

App update 1.1.0: Nectarine Health is pleased to announce a new consumer product feature, released to app stores last week, in our Nectarine Health™ at Home care system.

With the new 1.1.0 version of the Nectarine Health™ app, its users can now view sleep interruptions displayed as part of their trackable sleep data within the app. This data is available to the wristband wearers, home admins, and those carers that have been authorized to access well-being insights by the wearer or home admin.

Our system already offers highly accurate sleep and activity monitoring. When the user falls asleep, how long they stay asleep, and the duration of the activity whilst awake are tracked and displayed via graphs in the consumer app. As part of our newest software update, this data is expanded to include sleep interruptions.

The term “sleep interruption” is descriptive of when someone wakes up in the middle of the night, likely falling back asleep after a while. For example, possible sleep interruptions could include a few minutes of restlessness, having a nightmare which disrupts sleep, getting up to go to the bathroom, etc. One may not remember a sleep interruption happening, but these incidents can be important in tracking sleep patterns and trends and can be useful for your analysis of possible health issues. Should you choose to share the data with your physician, this could prove beneficial to their analysis of your well-being as well. This being said, we find it particularly pertinent to include sleep interruptions in our system’s tracking abilities.

Version 1.1.0 also brings some additional developments to the function of the Nectarine Health™ mobile app including but not limited to:

  • The ability to edit your email & other details in the app.
  • The ability for Home Admins and Wearers to remove a Carer.
  • Bug fixes & other improvements.

We are proud to continue to elevate our system to provide users, whether they are a wearer of the wristband, a caregiver, or a loved one, with helpful information aiding senior in-home care. This update acts as yet another piece of the puzzle in our mission to facilitate life-loving independence.
