    Abstract

    This paper describes the calculation of statistical, spatial and spatiotemporal features from a novel non-contact technology for sleep monitoring, the Under Mattress Bed Sensor (UMBS). Data was collected from two relatively healthy adults with a possible sleep disorder in a clinical setting. Methods for the extraction of statistical data describing overall bed restlessness, a spatial description of movement (centre and spread of pressure) and a spatiotemporal description of each in-bed body movement over the entire sleeping episode are discussed using the pressure sensing grid. These provide a quantitative description of sleep and restlessness throughout the night.
