It is a common misconception that sleep apnoea is a minor health issue, when in fact it presents serious risks, particularly cardiovascular problems, diabetes, depression and even sudden death. The disorder affects 15% of the population on average (even more in Switzerland) and can be treated, yet only 0.03% of cases are detected. It should be noted that the examination requires hospitalisation and costs about CHF 1,500. In Neuchâtel, Netsensing has reduced this to CHF 30 with sensors that measure posture, heart rate and breathing, miniaturised to fit into a belt that can be used at home. Already validated by the hospital in Neuchâtel and by a large cooperative of Swiss pharmacists, the CE mark is now being sought for this device so that it can be produced on an industrial scale and commercialised.
