Respironics has released the new AW2 and AW Spectrum 

Actiwatch 2 - In addition to sleep/wake activity recording, Actiwatch 2 has the ability to record information about the amount and duration of ambient white light illuminance, in units of lux. Actiwatch-2 also features a comfortable design to enhance patient compliance, a large 1 MBit storage capacity, a rechargeable battery, a waterproof casing and the ability to be used with a hospital band. Communication to the Actiwatch-2 is achieved via USB connection to the sleek Actiwatch 2 communications dock. These features, among others are why Respironics’ Actiwatch products make it easier than ever to implement actigraphy.

Actiwatch Spectrum - In addition to sleep/wake activity recording and the updated features included in the Actiwatch-2, Actiwatch Spectrum is equipped with three color light sensors that provide irradiance and luminous flux recordings in three color bands of the visible spectrum: red, green, and blue. Beyond color-light sensing, Actiwatch Spectrum also features a LCD display for time, date and device status indicators as well as off-wrist detection and a one year battery life. These features, among others are why Respironics’ Actiwatch products make it easier than ever to implement actigraphy.

Actiwatch Score – Like all of our Actiwatch devices, the AW-Score actigraph uses actigraphy principles to record activity information and can be used to analyze sleep quality.

In addition to the objective activity data, Actiwatch-Score allows for recording subjective scores for any parameter that can be classified from 0-15 (scale is programmable), providing a strong enhancement to Patient Diaries. The unique combination of activity and scoring provides an excellent way to correlate activity with other subjective data normally collected by a patient diary. It can also be used to document the effectiveness of interventions on conditions of interest. The Actiwatch-Score includes a programmable alarm to prompt the patient to enter a quantifiable score. Alarms can be set to a schedule or to sound at random intervals.
