Fatigue is increasingly being viewed as hazardous to society’s health. Many jobs and job tasks require individuals to be functioning at high mental alertness without symptoms of fatigue. Legislation on the identification and management of fatigue in hazardous environments, mining, flying, and the trucking industry are becoming common.
Actigraphy is a part of the toolbox to identify and manage fatigue in individuals. Actigraphy is an objective measure of activity and sleep/wake patterns over time. Actigraphy devices use accelerometers to measure movement over a period of time. Data can be recorded over multiple days in the patient’s own environment to provide an objective record for tracking and documenting normal and abnormal activity or sleep/wake patterns
An Actiwatch is an actigraphy device that is a compact, wrist-worn, battery-operated activity monitor that looks like a wristwatch. The Actiwatch is used by clinicians and researchers to help diagnose, measure, and monitor individuals suffering from sleep disorders.
