This study presents SmartWearable, a health-monitoring patch that can be used to estimate the apnea/hypopnea index (AHI) as a replacement to the cumbersome conventional polysomnography (PSG) that is currently under practice. SmartWearable provides a more comfortable solution and removes the necessity of laboratory dependent recording scenarios, while offering 88.71% accuracy to detect moderate and severe apnea, similarly to PSG.
