A large proportion of infants have frequent sleep-related issues, and some of them may also have an underlying medical adversity, such as preterm birth or neonatal infections. While infant sleep is currently only studied in hospitals using labor-intensive polysomnography measurements, there would be a clear need for recording in patient’s home as well. Here, we describe a newly developed mobile wearable system designed for such purpose, consisting of pull-up pants, with integrated motion sensor and textile ECG-sensors. The paper presents our preliminary findings of product user’s experience; a parent, a nurse and a doctor.
