The Snorefox app runs on popular smartphones and simply uses the phone's internal microphone for analysis. Technically, it is a combination of acoustic pre-processing, intelligent feature extraction and machine classification. This means that Snorefox can do without special measurement microphones or other special hardware - a major advantage over other solutions.
Clear no. Through pseudonymised data processing, Snorefox guarantees the highest data protection requirements. What is pseudonymised data processing? At the moment of registration, Snorefox converts your e-mail address into a code and only this code is transmitted to our server with the aim of being able to associate the analyzes generated with your mobile phone. This means that your e-mail address remains unknown to us and is never stored on our server with the analyses.
Snorefox detects breathing irregularities and respiratory events through intelligent audio analysis of snoring and breath noise patterns. In other words: Snorefox analyzes your snoring and at the same time carries out a risk check to determine whether there are dangerous breathing stops during sleep. Snorefox shows you the result of the analysis in a simple traffic light scheme. In this way, Snorefox quickly provides orientation as to whether a doctor's visit is necessary.
