BRISBANE, Australia – ResApp’s new respiratory disease management digital platform detects sleep apnea with 86% sensitivity, according to clinical proof-of-concept studies. The company’s new technology uses machine-learning algorithms to measure the severity of sleep apnea from a patient’s overnight breathing and snoring sounds recorded using a smartphone. “There is a strong clinical and economic need for reducing the number of undiagnosed sleep apnea sufferers and by utilizing a smartphone we have the opportunity to deliver a highly-scalable, accurate and easy to use screening test to the mass market,” said Tony Keating, CEO and managing director of ResApp, in a statement. “By leveraging our expertise in using audio signatures to identify respiratory conditions we have created another large commercial opportunity.” The company is currently recruiting patients for a prospective study and is targeting a regulatory submission by the end of this calendar year.
