Comparison of Two Different Actigraphs With Polysomnography in Healthy Young Subjects

Lorenzo Tonetti et al. Chronobiol Int. .

Abstract

The present study aimed to compare two commercially available actigraphs, with a concurrent polysomnographic (PSG) recording. Twelve healthy volunteers (six women; age range 19-28 yrs) simultaneously wore the Basic Mini-Motionlogger and Actiwatch for seven overnight polysomnographic recordings. Comparisons of the following sleep measures were focused on: sleep onset latency (SOL), total sleep time, wake after sleep onset, and sleep efficiency. Both devices underestimated SOL in comparison to PSG, but they had similar performance compared to PSG for the other sleep measures. A limit of the study is that the results can be only generalized to healthy young subjects.
