    1. 1. Sleepplanner DW2-01: Gnin Yeow An Kueo Miao Ru Nurun Nisha M Heallmy Tan Shu Hui Esme Claire Uichiro Sawada
    2. 2. Overview <ul><li>A mobile application that: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>helps the user plan his/her schedule efficiently, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>while making sure that he/she gets the adequate amount of quality rest needed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>for his/her body to rejuvenate and function effectively. </li></ul></ul>
    3. 3. Reason <ul><li>Heavily linked to health, but often neglected </li></ul><ul><li>Sleep deprivation costs $150 billion/year in higher stress and reduced worker productivity (National Commission on Sleep Disorders, 2003) </li></ul><ul><li>A 2001 NSF survey also lists several medical conditions linked directly to sleep deprivation: depression (83%), nighttime heartburn (82%), diabetes (81%), hypertension (79%), and heart disease (78%) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>( http://treat-insomnia.com/sleep-deprivation/sleep-deprivation-statistics/ ) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Short-term and long-term effects </li></ul>http://www.scientahealth.com/new...2009.php
    4. 4. Problem statement: People <ul><li>Working adults </li></ul><ul><li>Busy schedules </li></ul><ul><ul><li>People sleep on average 6.9 hours/day, almost 1 hour less than a few decades ago in today’s fast-paced society </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>( http://treat-insomnia.com/sleep-deprivation/sleep-deprivation-statistics/ ) </li></ul></ul></ul>
    5. 5. Problem statement: Activities <ul><li>Poor time management due to extreme emphasis placed upon importance of work and daily commitments </li></ul><ul><ul><li>schedules do not allow adequate time for it </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>do not know the negative effects on health and functioning </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>( http://www.sleepdex.org/ ) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Not dedicating enough time for sleep </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Adults require about 8 hours of sleep </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>( http://medheadlines.com/2008/05/12/survey-says-7-8-hours-sleep-best-more-or-less-is-risky ) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Usually require less sleep as we age </li></ul><ul><ul><li>( http://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/bhcv2/bhcarticles.nsf/pages/Sleep_deprivation ) </li></ul></ul>
    6. 6. Problem statement: Context <ul><li>Physical: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Busy schedules require physical commitment from individuals  time taken from rest </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Social: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>‘ Normal’ to have lack of sleep </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lack of sleep, work and the long hours culture: evidence from the UK Time Use Survey </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>( http://wes.sagepub.com/cgi/content/short/23/1/30 ) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Cultural: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Place much emphasis on meritocracy  habits from school </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hard work is valued. Hard work = achieve more goals = less time for leisure/rest </li></ul></ul>
    7. 7. Other applications <ul><li>Similar Applications </li></ul><ul><li>YawnLog ( http://beta.yawnlog.com/ ) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Social </li></ul></ul><ul><li>vClinic Sleep Tracker 1.0 ( www.vclinic.net ) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Professional analysis </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Other Applications </li></ul><ul><li>Sleep Cycle ( http://www.lexwarelabs.com/sleepcycle/ ) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>iPhone application </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Alarm function </li></ul></ul>
    8. 8. Proposed Solution <ul><ul><li>Current: use of technologies to help plan daily schedules efficiently  smart phones, PDAs, online calendars (Outlook, Google Calendar) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>According to Niall's investigation, Google &quot;served up over 700 million gadget views last week, including over 400 million gadget views (57%) from its top 10 gadgets&quot;. The most popular gadgets by far are Date & Time and Google Calendar , </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>( http://googlesystem.blogspot.com/2007/03/statistics-for-google-gadgets.html ) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Input: First time: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>> Key in personal data </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>> Import Calendar </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>View profile </li></ul></ul>System User Calculate sleep needs Mobile application Upload data Generate sleep hours for planner Input: Daily activities Output: -Alarms -Reminders -Sleep suggestions
    9. 9. Proposed Solution <ul><li> Mobile application: </li></ul><ul><li>voice-based input + touch screen to select and modify (iPhone technology: Dragon dictation ) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>recommend short naptimes during the day itself </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Monitor stress levels to calculate if user needs more rest to recover from the day’s activities by tracking the user’s heartbeat (iPhone technology: iHeart or Beatmonitor ) </li></ul><ul><li>Daily diet (tagged with mealtimes) and exercise input </li></ul><ul><li>Use existing iPhone technology called Sleep Cycle : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>calculate the number of complete sleep cycles the user goes through every night to enhance accuracy of basal sleep need calculation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Set the daily alarms after sleeping/napping to ensure quality sleep </li></ul></ul><ul><li> Internet: </li></ul><ul><li>linked to the database </li></ul><ul><li>contains the user’s unique profile (age, work, gender, etc) </li></ul><ul><li>system will reassess the user’s basal sleep needs and sleep debts to calculate rest needed for subsequent days </li></ul><ul><li>Through sync functions, the user has the alternative of keying in his schedule data on the computer (manual keying or importing from calendars) or the mobile device </li></ul><ul><ul><li>paired with one remote device and the information can only be transferred wirelessly and onto the internet when the user’s account on the remote device is logged on (requiring a password) </li></ul></ul>
    10. 10. Example Red when less than recommended amount
    11. 11. Strengths of solution <ul><li>Useful to keep track of amount of rest </li></ul><ul><li>Helps to make the user more productive and efficient </li></ul><ul><li>Convenient for those already using technology to build their schedules </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Modification through integration of useful features found on the iPhone </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Both a personal (time management) and social application (peer support) </li></ul>
    12. 12. Criticism of solution <ul><li>Will the user be required to have a high level of competency to use this technology? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Many integrated elements </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Will the mobile device be able to handle such vast amount of information + be independent to calculate sleep needs for user? </li></ul><ul><li>Issues of privacy as the user will have his daily schedule in the database (Internet) </li></ul>
