Our PiezoSleep data collection software scores sleep and wake automatically while the system is running; processing real-time pressure signals from animals during sleep or waking activity. A highly sensitive, calibrated piezoelectric sensor (or new Adapt-A-Base sensor pad) is located under the rodent cage. PiezoSleep collects the analog data, digitizes the data and roughly computes sleep and wake; viewable in real time.
