Chances are you have a health tracker, maybe an Oura Ring, Apple Watch, or Fitbit, on you. If you’re like most people, you probably dove headfirst into the world of health monitoring devices a few years ago. These wearable devices and apps remind you to prioritize health, wellness needs, and your personal goals.
Now imagine you could also get a health tracker for your child without having to attach a sensor or sock or special swaddle. It does the job of a wearable but without the discomfort of having the monitor on their body. Miku Pro is a contactless, easy-to-use, easy-to-maintain wellness tracker that monitors your child’s sleep and breathing patterns in real time.
Now, Care+ from Miku gives you an at-a-glance view of their sleep and breathing trends over time, offering a bigger picture of your child’s wellness and notifying you if an important change occurs.
Wondering how Care+ can help you identify changes in your child’s wellness? Let’s take a deeper look.
What is Care+?
Care+ is a Miku monitor-powered pediatric wellness dashboard that gives you a comprehensive view of your child’s wellness status every time you open it. This dashboard shows you, in real time, your child’s sleep and breathing trends.
Developed in partnership with leading pediatric experts, Care+ uses trend graphs and trend notifications to help you stay aware of changes in your child’s sleep and breathing patterns, their key wellness indicators. With this information, you can adjust daily habits and nightly routines or discuss any inconsistencies with your provider.
A change in your child’s trends may be due to:
- Changes in bedtime
Your child’s bedtime influences their sleep duration and quality. Have you made a recent change to their sleep schedule? Care+ can help you know if they’ve been going to bed earlier or later and if they’ve been having enough sleep and make necessary changes.
- Changes in room conditions
Experts recommend that a cool, dark, and quiet environment is best for sleep. If your child hasn’t been sleeping well, it might be that their room conditions need some tweaking. How cool is it? Is it quiet? Does the street light get through the windows at night? Care+ answers these questions and tells you more about their sleep environment. Then, you can make necessary adjustments to their room.
- Screen time
Nighttime screen time might mean poor sleep for your child, especially if they use their phones or tablets or watch the Tv about two hours before bedtime. Blue light from screens can keep your child alert when they should be winding down and disrupt their sleep quality and duration. Care+ can tell you how much time your child is spending on their screens. If you need to limit using their devices in the room, you can take keep them away from their bedrooms.
- Lifestyle trends
Your child’s daytime habits significantly impact their well-being. For example, evidence shows that physical activity and spending time outdoors can substantially improve nighttime rest. Care+ can show changes in your child’s sleep that might be tied to their daily habits.
- Developmental milestones
Developmental milestones can also affect a growing child’s sleep patterns. Teething, learning to crawl, growing pains, and the babbling that comes with learning to talk can disrupt a child’s sleep or even wake them up. By keeping an eye on your little one’s sleep patterns, you can identify if any changes in their trends might be linked in time to reaching a developmental milestone.
- General wellness
Wellness monitoring focuses on following key indicators, like respiratory rate and sleep patterns, over time. Understanding a child’s unique sleep and respiratory patterns helps you track changes that might be connected to their overall health and wellbeing. Using trend graphs and trend notifications, Care+ helps you stay aware of important changes in your child’s unique sleep and breathing patterns and determine if you need to discuss any inconsistencies with your provider.
