This spring, the British Snoring & Sleep Apnoea Association (BSSAA) conducted a survey, with experts in the field of snoring as to how new technology can aid snore analysis and treatment.
Nowadays, there are a variety of sleep analysis apps with a range of functionality. Snoring apps are useful for a person who wants to know if they snore and for those who wish to understand the underlying causes of snoring and its amplitude.
BSSAA specialists selected several of the most popular apps for sleep and snoring analytics for exploring public opinion on their usefulness. Among them was our app Goodsomnia Lab.
Let’s dive deeper into this theme and look at their benefits. For example, snoring apps, such as Goodsomnia Lab, are an innovative way to detect and analyse snoring problems.
Our app also has heart health-screening software (Goodsomnia ECG Analytics add-on) engineered for people to use at home around the globe. More than 5,000 people have downloaded Goodsomnia Lab on Google Play Market, and we are happy to present Goodsomnia Lab for IOS users soon.
According to BSSAA research of more than 1000 snorers between 15 and 65 years who took part over 82% had not considered using a smartphone as a tool to identify/monitor snoring.
Respondents said that using simple analytical apps helped with understanding the severity of their problem. After some time, many showed their app results to doctors and were referred to specialist clinics for a sleep study to confirm or refute sleep apnoea.
Currently, how to stop snoring and finding the best anti-snoring solution will be the main tasks for them.
Survey respondents said that using such apps gave great value to using anti-snoring devices and helped them know more about effective remedies and personal treatment progress.
Summing up the results of the survey, almost all of the respondents – 87% – reported trust in mobile apps for the diagnosis and control of snoring problems. There is a steady trend in using modern technology like mobile apps and smart devices to help stop snoring in the UK and around the world. It improves peoples’ well-being and, in some cases, saves lives.
