A Home Sleep Study From Your Own Bed

Medically reviewed by: 

If you’re having trouble with your sleep, your doctor or someone you know may have suggested undergoing a sleep study. Participating in a sleep study or sleep clinic can be a great way to get to the root of your sleep issues and find out how to fall asleep faster, stay asleep, and wake up feeling refreshed—but sleep clinics can be exensive, uncomfortable, and hard to find.

With Sleep Reset, you can get the benefits of a sleep study right from your phone, in the comfort of your own home. Learn more about Sleep Reset and our at-home sleep study.

What Is a Sleep Study?

When you undergo a sleep study, you typically will need to go to a professional facility such as a sleep clinic or sleep center. These clinics are essentially laboratories where a doctor can monitor you overnight and observe your brain and body activityto look for possible sleep disruptions. Sensors will measure brain activity, breathing, and other signals that can help your doctor diagnose sleep disorsers or issues. In addition to identifying irregularities with your sleep, sleep studies can reveal if you have sleep disorders such as Restless Leg Syndrome, sleep apnea, narcolepsy, and more.

While sleep studies are incredibly effective at diagnosing sleep problems, they’re often expensive and require you to wait weeks or months to get in. More and more, people suffering from sleep disruptions are turning to at-home sleep clinics, where there are no waitlists and significantly lower costs.

What Types of Sleep Studies Are There?

When you attend a sleep clinic, there are several different types of sleep studies that may be conducted, depending on your sleep problems. Here are some of the common types of sleep studies:

  • Polysomnography: Polysomnography involves monitoring a patient overnight and looking at their eye movements, respiratory activity, blood oxygen levels, heart rate, brain activity, muscle activity, body movement, snoring, and more.
  • CPAP Titration: Those with sleep apnea may need a CPAP machine (continuous positive airway pressure) to treat their sleep disorder. In a CPAP titration study, the technician learns what level of air pressure the patient needs from their CPAP device. Sleep apnea can usually be diagnosed through polysomnography, and then a CPAP titration study is used to ensure the patient has their CPAP machine properly programmed.
  • Multiple Sleep Latency Test: This test looks at the time it takes for someone to fall asleep and monitors if someone enters REM sleep when they nap during the daytime. This is a test often used to diagnose narcolepsy.
  • At-home Tests: At-home tests are a convenient alternative to an in-person sleep study. For an at-home sleep apnea test, you may need special equipment to diagnose the issue. For other sleep disorders, following the instructions for tracking progress can help you address your sleep problems.

How Does a Home Sleep Study Work?

While a sleep clinic involves an overnight visit with sensors, a home sleep study will involve tracking your sleep patterns over time, using a mobile app. Sleep Reset’s self-sleep clinic begins with a a thorough sleep quiz to uncover the root issues that are causing your sleep problems. After that, you get your custom-built program to help you address those issues and sleep better. Sleep Reset also provides you with a dedicated sleep coach to provide you guidance throughout the program and monitor your progress.

Sleep Reset can offer an at-home sleep study because we’ve built our program using science-backed methods from top sleep clinics. With your week-by-week program, sleep science lessons, and library of resources, you’ll finally be able to achieve the best sleep of your life. As you continue to use Sleep Reset, your progress and data are tracked, helping you and your coach get a more accurate picture of your sleep. You can also integrate your program with Apple Health to provide your coach with even more data. 

Our program is a combination of methods based on cognitive restructuring, stimulus control, sleep restriction and compression, relaxation training, and sleep hygiene. By the end of the program, you’ll have built the habits you need to get better sleep for life, all without the need for sleep aids.

What Are the Benefits?

Sleep Reset provides you with many of the benefits of a sleep clinic and sidesteps some of the downsides. Here are some of the biggest benefits you get from using a self-sleep clinic at home:

  • Accessibility: As mentioned, getting into a sleep study can take time. With Sleep Reset, you can get started on the path to better sleep right away.
  • Affordable: In-person sleep studies can be expensive and sometimes they’re not covered by insurance. Plus, if you want to pursue cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia in person to address your sleep issues, the cost is even higher. Sleep Reset provides you with a program based on CBT-I methods at a fraction of the cost of in-person therapy.
  • Convenience: Of course, being able to do a sleep study right from your mobile device is incredibly convenient. Plus, it only takes 5-10 minutes out of your day.
  • Expert-designed: Sleep Reset was designed in partnership with top experts and sleep clinics, including Stanford University Sleep Medicine Center. You can trust that you’re getting a real sleep program based on science and proven methods.
  • Proven Success: Based on surveys of members who have completed our program, 9 out of 10 have said they’ve achieved better sleep. Our Sleep Log data has shown our members report 88 minutes of increased total sleep per night, 52% less time needed to fall asleep, 3 fewer awakenings, and more.
  • All-natural: Sleep Reset helps you get better sleep without sleep pills or supplements. These can cause side effects and dependencies. Sleep Reset helps you get better sleep for life, naturally.

Why Should You Evaluate Your Sleeping Habits?

Your sleeping habits affect the quality of your sleep. Getting your sleep habits under control helps you fall asleep faster, stay asleep throughout the night, and wake up without feeling groggy in the morning. When you get better sleep, your physical and mental health improves too. Here are just some of the benefits you get from quality sleep:

  • Improved immune system
  • Improved mood
  • Improved focus and memory retention
  • Better cardiovascular health
  • Weight regulation
  • Improved productivity
  • Increased energy
  • Less stress
