Researchers suggest that there is an existence of a bi-directional link between sleep disorders and deteriorating mental and physical health in individuals. Failure to identify and diagnose sleep disorders impacts mental aptitude and physical vitality by causing increased blood pressure, heart failure, diabetes, among others. Prolonged undiagnosed sleep disorders can cause individuals to spend years of their lives in a sub-optimal state of psychological and physiological functioning, never maximizing the real potential of their mind or body.
Monitoring sleep-related physiological activity can help determine the actual cause, type, and assist in better diagnosis of several sleep-related conditions.
On this front, Dymedix Diagnostics, a medical device manufacturing company, offers patented respiratory effort, airflow, movement, and snore sensors based on a revolutionary material called polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF). This lightweight, thin, flexible material is sensitive to temperature, pressure, and vibration, making it optimal to use in measuring and detecting patterns during an individual’s sleep such as respiratory effort, oral/nasal airflow, muscle and movement activity, and other parameters.
Dymedix offers advanced PVDF sensors as reusable, semi-disposable, and completely disposable, designed with enhanced sensitivity required for high-quality adult and pediatric sleep monitoring. The company additionally provides surface electrodes to detect EMG activity from the Chin, Leg, and intercostal locations.
Utilizing PVDF material allows us to continually innovate and produce quick response, sensitive and accurate sensors for respiratory airflow and effort detection
Unlike conventional sensors, Dymedix’s technology provides very linear waveforms from both thermal and pressure stimulus. The flexible and disposable nature of polarized PVDF film allows Dymedix to create innovative sensor applications for sleep diagnostic testing with improved safety, accuracy, and reliability. Dymedix sensors are also compliant with the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) Accreditation Standards.
Customers can use Dymedix’s wide range of sensors for accurate detection of apnea, hypopnea, UARS, and snore on patients using either a home study device or a sleep lab system.
An important and unique value of using Dymedix airflow sensors is that physicians can get a more linear airflow pattern and faster response time in comparison to traditional thermocouple or thermistor technologies. The response time of a conventional thermal airflow sensor is generally 2-3 seconds, while the Dymedix airflow sensor has a response time of 5 milliseconds. The quick response time of Dymedix sensors helps in the detection of subtle airflow signals that might be missed by traditional thermistors.
“Utilizing PVDF material allows us to continually innovate and produce quick response, sensitive and accurate sensors for respiratory airflow and effort detection,” explains Jim Moore, President of Dymedix Diagnostics.
Dymedix Diagnostic’s products are FDA approved, CE marked, and compliant with ISO 13485 standards.
Description Dymedix Diagnostic offers an exclusive line of physiological sensors based on a technology called polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) specifically designed for the sleep medicine industry. PVDF is a unique polarized plastic film that delivers very fast and reliable signals when it is excited by movement, pressure, vibration and temperature change. This technology allows for the detection of sleep disorders like apneas, hypopneas, UARS, snoring and respiratory effort, all provided in disposable and reusable sensor options. Dymedix's patented PVDF technology provides accurate, reliable and consistent PSG data with the least amount of testing procedure disruption
