Spectrum Plus (Phillips Respironics) actigraphs were used to assess wake bouts, total wake time, and sleep efficiency (percentage of time in bed spent asleep).
They also wore an Actiwatch
, which assesses sleep/wake patterns.
Sleep quantity was assessed by means of an actigraph that was continuously worn around the non-dominant wrist and only detached during training or when being in contact with water (Actiwatch
2, Philips Respironics, Munysville, USA).
2 (Philips Respironics) actigraphs were used to measure sleep.
Os instrumentos utilizados foram: Actiwatch
2, Daily Sleep e Children's Sleep Habits Questionnaire-Abbreviated (CSHQ-A).
Sleep parameters were assessed using an actigraph (Actiwatch
, Respironics, Inc., Mini-Mitter, Bend, OR) and a data analysis software platform (Actiware, version 5.59.0015, 2010).
Therefore, in this study, the use of acupuncture for the add-on treatment of comorbid sleep disorders in a patient with chronic schizophrenia is investigated further by using both psychological-test and actiwatch
Physical activity was evaluated with the Actiwatch
AW7; CamNtech Ltd., Cambridge Neurotechnology, Cambridge, UK), which is a small (39 x 32 x 9) and light-weight (10.5 g) accelerometer that measures sleep-wake physical activity.
Objective sleep disturbances were measured by the Actiwatch
Score actigraph (Philips Respironics, Andover, MA), which is a noninvasive method that uses internal motion sensors to capture patient movement data, represented as the number of accelerations per minute .

actigraphs to polysomnography for sleep/wake estimation in healthy young adults.
The ActiGraph (Actiwatch
, AW64[R], Mini-Mitter Co Inc, Bend, OR, USA) was applied on the participant's non-dominant wrist (Figure 1), to be worn on the day prior to shift-work and on three consecutive days after shift-work to evaluate sleep duration and continuity as well as to obtain some information about daytime naps (10-12).
