Apr 28, 2022 Actigraphy Shows Promise as Objective Noninvasive Measure of Sleep-wake Regulation in Children with Brain Injury


A team of New Jersey researchers conducted a sleep study in inpatients in pediatric rehabilitation using an actigraph, a wrist-worn accelerometers that enables noninvasive continuous monitoring of sleep-wake cycles. This study is the first to use this rest-activity ration as a measure of sleep-wake regulation in children with brain injury during inpatient rehabilitation. Read more at medicalxpress.com.
