Actigraphy is a noninvasive method of monitoring rest and activity in humans and is used to estimate patterns of sleep and wake. Actigraphy is increasingly used not only to assess sleep-wake behavior in healthy sleepers but also to assess clinically patients with sleep disorders, such as insomnia and circadian rhythm sleep-wake disorders, to evaluate the efficacy of treatment options for improving sleep and to identify excessive daytime sleepiness.
