Giromed Institute is founded by a multidisciplinary group of experts in the design, development and management of medical products and healthcare services.

Sleep apnea syndrome is a highly prevalent disease. Globally, it affects eight per cent of the general population over 40 years old.

With the intelligent solution for the advance of the lower jaw developed to treat obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, called iDAM Sleep Sapphire, the entire value chain is covered. From diagnosis to treatment to ensure adherence, compliance, and treatment follow-up by affected patients and reduce mortality.

Giromed Institute has collaborated with Eurecat in designing and developing an advanced mandibular smart device for monitoring the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.

The iDAM Sleep Sapphire solution monitors in a single device: the heart rate, oxygen saturation level and the position and movements of patients during their sleep and generates alerts for both the patient and the doctor. The set of biometric data obtained from the real-time monitoring of patients will be the basis of an analytical tool that, in the future, may also be useful for the diagnosis and prevention of cardiovascular pathologies or strokes, among others.

The application of the Internet of Things in this technological challenge for medical management will facilitate the detection and prevention of adverse effects, which will make it possible to reduce mortality and apply action protocols in a personalized way, measuring the effectiveness and efficiency of treatments and improving the diagnosis of disease evolution. The results of clinical trials ensure that treatment compliance is 100% of the cases.

Eurecat has used the latest technologies in electronic manufacturing to develop the device.
