Better Outcomes through Medical-Grade Technology and Personalized Insights

Empower Sleep uses FDA-approved technology approved to aid in the diagnosis and management of sleep disorders. Your sleep is recorded using a wearable ring and minimally disruptive to your sleep. This accurate, convenient, and comfortable ring can be used for multiple nights, which gives us more data to ensure optimal outcomes.


Product Description

The SleepImage software and Viatom oximeter ring use 6 channels of data to accurately detect sleep apnea and estimate sleep quality.

The following data is measured: Plethysmogram, Heart Rate, Heart Rate Variability, Respiration, Blood Oxygenation (SpO2) and Movement (Actigraphy).

The at-home sleep test is shown to agree with in-lab tests in over 90.5% of cases (with 98.8% accuracy in severe sleep apnea and 96.3% in mild sleep apnea patients).


Who is it for? 

Individuals who want to get tested from the comfort of their own homes and beds, who don't want to spend the night in a sleep lab and/or don't want to wait for a Polysomnography appointment.

The following symptoms may be indicators of sleep disorders:

  • Snoring
  • Long pauses in breathing and violent snorts, gasps or moans during sleep
  • Morning headaches
  • Morning sore throat and/or dry mouth
  • Frequent awakenings to urinate
  • Memory impairment
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Drowsiness during the day


If you have a sleep diagnosis

If you have previously been diagnosed with sleep apnea or insomnia, Empower Sleep can still help you improve your sleep dramatically.

Empower Sleep can support you with the following:

  • CPAP or dental appliance titration
  • Evaluation of alternative treatments (e.g., dental  appliance, CPAP, palatal expansion, iNap, surgery, implantable devices, and/or lifestyle improvements)
  • Evaluation of the effectiveness of existing treatment
  • Understanding the effects of behavioral changes and evaluating how other conditions (e.g., allergies, menopause, hypothyroidism) may be impacting your sleep

Day 0

Get started

Meet with a sleep provider online so we get a better understanding of your sleep and medical history. Based on your history and symptoms, your provider will approve a device with FDA-approved technology, which will be shipped directly to you.

Day 4

Collect sleep data from the comfort of your own home

We will ship you a home sleep testing ring, detailed instructions, and a return label. Start your sleep test by capturing up to 10 nights of data.

Why 10 nights? Human sleep is dynamic, so more data reduces the risk of night-to-night variability and helps us hyper-personalize your care plan. Use the Empower Sleep app to track your sleep, chat with your provider, and get unique insights based on your results.

Day 14 & Beyond

Optimize your care plan for healthy sleep

Meet with your Empower Sleep provider virtually. Together, you will develop a personalized care plan based on your sleep data, health history, and lifestyle. Treatments are delivered directly to you. Our holistic approach includes medical devices like CPAP, oral appliances, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), and/or conservative options (e.g. lip tape, nasal dilators, positional therapy, etc.).

As a member, you will continue to use the sleep test to optimize your treatment and get long-term care. Our care team will monitor your sleep data and check-in frequently to ensure optimal health outcomes.

Understanding the Home Sleep Test


Who should take an at-home sleep test?

We recommend an at-home sleep test for:

  • Individuals with low energy or fatigue during the day, who are not feeling rested in the morning or easily fall asleep during the day
  • Individuals who snore loudly or gasp for air in their sleep
  • Anyone who exhibits other symptoms of moderate to severe sleep apnea
  • Anyone who wants to complete a sleep study but wants a more affordable and convenient option than a sleep lab
  • Individuals with health complications such as: high BMI index and/or symptoms of anxiety, ADHD, hypertension, and diabetes

People who suspect they might have at least one other sleep disorder besides sleep apnea, or possibly a different one, should consult with a physician and discuss whether an in-lab study is recommended.

How is Snoring related to Sleep Apnea?

Snoring may not only be uncomfortable for you and your bed partner, but is also a sleep apnea symptom. Both could be caused by obstructed airways and often occur at the same time.

We help to analyze your sleep at home and suggest a personalized treatment.

Fixing snoring & sleep apnea can result in reduction of daytime fatigue, higher energy levels and improved performance.


What if I can’t sleep during a sleep study?


How does a home sleep study work?


Why test for multiple nights?


Can you take a sleep apnea test at your own home?

The SleepImage software has been certified by the FDA and is shown to agree with results from an In-lab sleep test (Polysomnography) in 96.3% of mild sleep apnea tests, 90.5% of moderate sleep apnea tests, and 98.8% of severe sleep apnea tests (source).


Do you need a prescription for sleep apnea therapy?


How accurate are at home sleep apnea tests? 


Will insurance pay for at-home sleep apnea studies?

While recent clinical studies (study 1, study 2) demonstrate the importance of multi-night sleep tests, insurance coverage of multi-night sleep tests has lagged behind. If you plan to submit the expense or the results of an Empower Sleep home sleep test to your health insurance, you should consult with your insurance plan before purchasing the sleep test.

You can also utilize your HSA or FSA to cover the sleep test costs.


How does a home sleep study diagnose Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

The SleepImage ring will track your pulse and blood oxygenation levels during your home sleep test. The results will be shared with your doctor through your phone's Bluetooth. Your doctor will then review the data, develop your diagnosis, and create your personalized care plan.

The Empower Sleep care team takes into account sleep apnea related indexes (AHI, RDI, ODI), as well as quality parameters in crafting your care plan. Parameters include but are not restricted to your health history, symptoms, the amount of sleep in each sleep stage, the amount of stable sleep, and your overall sleep architecture.
