Sleep Health

This research focusses on two highly prevalent sleep disorders that contribute to reduced productivity and safety - obstructive sleep apnea and insomnia.

These disorders are even more common in specific occupational groups eg. 45% of Australian truck drivers have OSA.  Untreated sleep disorders lead to a several‐fold increased risk of occupational accidents and injuries and reduced productivity.

The objective is to

  • Develop new systems for efficient phenotyping of obstructive sleep apnea and insomnia and
  • Develop a paradigm to determine the most effective treatment approach for each individual.

These systems will be suitable for use in both occupational setting and in clinical practice.
