100碩士論文:適用於居家環境具止鼾功能之智慧型床墊設計與開發

  各項睡眠監測項目中,鼾聲是睡眠中最常見且最普遍的睡眠相關疾病。在睡眠監測上使用夜間多項生理監測儀雖然非常精確,但需要在身上配戴多種儀器,不方便也影響睡眠,而且只能在特定實驗室中進行,也不適合做長期與普遍的監測。隨著感測器技術的進步以及睡眠研究的發展,許多學者致力研究如何以更輕巧、更簡便、非接觸式、甚至非察覺性的監測技術做睡眠監測,讓睡眠監測不再侷限於醫療院所或睡眠實驗室的醫療服務,而是可以在居家環境中進行的日常保健行為。
  本研究與世大化成公司合作開發適合居家環境使用之「具止鼾功能之智慧型床墊」,以非察覺性方式監測睡眠中鼾聲與活動,並能將監測歷程記錄下供使用者瀏覽,並設計頭部抬升機構,在監測到鼾聲時能自動將頭部位置提高,以改善睡眠者打鼾現象。本研究頭部抬升機構以世大化成之溫感釋壓泡棉材料及該公司專業製程製作,並進行功能性初步評估,完成商品化之準備。

Development of an Intelligent Bed Mattress with Stop-snoring Function for use in the Home Environment

 Sleeping quality is an important indication for a person’s health. Snoring is the most common diseases in sleep. In clinical practice, the use of polysomnographic (PSG) recording is a standard procedure to assess sleep. However, PSG is not suitable for long term monitoring in the home environment. With the rapid advance of sensing technologies, non-invasive and unrestrained sensing techniques have been developed for the monitoring of sleep quality in a home environment. 
 This research presents the development of an intelligent bed mattress with stop-snoring function for use in a home environment. The snoring detector is able to detect snores and record the data. When snores are detected, a head-lift mechanism is activated to raise the head position to about 30 degrees in order to stop snoring. Working with a bed manufacturer, this intelligent bed mattress uses the material and manufacturing process of commercial bed mattresses. Functional tests and preliminary user evaluation are also conducted, getting ready for future commercialization.
