The application promises its users to monitor their snoring to better understand and even eliminate them and thus improve the quality of sleep.
Snoring is a sleep problem that occurs in privacy and therefore it is not always easy to know if a person snores or how loud the sound is. To facilitate the detection of snoring and even sleep apnea, it is now possible to use the 'smartphone' and specialized applications.
This is the case of RoncoLab, the version for Spanish-speaking users of SnoreLab, a health app developed by Reviva Softworks that promises its users to monitor their snoring to better understand it and even eliminate it and thus improve the quality of sleep.
The application takes advantage of the functions and sensors present in today's smartphones, especially the microphone. According to its creators, it has already monitored more than 50 million nights of sleep.
To use RoncoLabs, it is advisable to place the phone on the bedside table next to the bed, connected to the charger, face down and pointing the microphone towards the user, so that they can better capture snoring.
The phone continues to work at night and in the morning it prepares the user a 'snoring meter', with measurements on the hours of sleep, if the user snores, at what time they snored, at what volume and even records snoring samples.
The application, which according to its creators is recommended by doctors and dentists, has lifestyle functions, helping to better understand snoring – such as the effects that alcohol consumption, nasal congestion, tobacco, etc. – and the effectiveness of anti-snoring methods such as mouthpieces.
In fact, RoncoLabs is even capable of providing data to physicians that can be used to support the diagnosis of disorders like sleep apnea.
This application is available for iOS and Android for free, although with paid 'premium' functions, and when it starts working it requires the user to accept the permission to access the microphone.
