Green-Enhancer Glasses
This invention is an optical filter which blocks out blue light and only allows green to pass through, increasing the relative amount of green light that passes through. This filter can be used on prescription and non-prescription glasses, as well as on coverings for lamps and light bulbs. Green light in the morning can rehabilitate the circadian system...

Circadian Rhythm Restoring Blue Blockers
This technology is for glasses that are to be worn at night to block harmful blue light from artificial light sources. Specifically, these glasses block wavelengths associated with circadian-active light, which causes melatonin suppression. This intervention restores the endogenous rhythms of users and leads to better sleep patterns. Background: With...

Kappa Opioid Receptor Antagonists for Sleep Disorders
Researchers at UArizona have discovered that kappa opioid receptors influence sleep in mice struggling with chronic pain. In particular they found that a kappa opioid receptor antagonist could be beneficial for improvement of sleep related to pain conditions, as well as other conditions where increased kappa opioid receptor signaling has been observed....

Circadian Responses to Light-Flash Exposure: Conceptualization and Data Guiding Future Directions
Though perhaps not often thought of first, the circadian system in the human body is essential to important daily and cyclical bodily functions including: hormone release, temperature control, eating habits, mood, sleep, etc. Those circadian responses in the human body are primarily triggered by light exposure. There is a body of research surrounding...

Evaluating Hotels to Optimize Guest Sleep
Excluding the exigent circumstances of 2020, the United States has approximately 4.9 million hotel rooms and, at any given time, approximately 3 million of those are occupied. The increased ability of people to travel all over the United States and the world is a trend that continues to rise. While hotels provide a number of amenities for guest comfort...

Assessment of Sleep Environment (ASE)
This invention is a 13-item questionnaire that assesses the degree to which an individual's environment impacts on their sleep. It measures light/dark, noise/quiet, smell, humidity, sleeping surface, safety, and other factors. Background: In spite of the relatively short history of sleep and sleep disorder research, significant progress has been...

Brief Index of Sleep Control (BRISC)
This is a diagnostic index and questionnaire that assesses the degree to which an individual perceives control over their bedtime, wake time, sleep duration, and sleep quality. Background: Control over time to bed, time awake, sleep duration, and sleep quality are all related to sleep outcomes and assessment of these constructs may be useful for future...

Deep Learning Algorithm for Detection of Cortical Arousal During Sleep
This invention is an end-to-end deep learning algorithm to detect cortical arousals during sleep using a one-night single lead electrocardiogram (ECG) signal. It is used to accurately detect arousal in home sleep tests, by reducing the false negative rate. The model combines both convolutional neural networks (CNN) and recurrent neural networks (RNN). Background: Sleep...
