Smart Connected Water Bottle and Lighting Devices: A Prenatal Pilot Study

We will conduct a pilot study to test feasibility of an innovative light device and blue-light glasses for promoting better sleep and a novel, smart water bottle for proper hydration. We will also examine women’s sleep and hydration behaviors in relation to their perceptions of pain, and obtain feedback from the participants on the overall patient intervention content to reduce prescription opioid use and promote behavioral pain management strategies after delivery.

Currently recruiting pregnant women who are in their 2nd or 3rd trimester.Attend a pre-session (in person OR remote) to explain the use of the water bottle, lighting devices, activity monitors, and weight scaleUse the devices for 22 days and complete surveys in your own homeAttend a post-session (in person OR remote) to return devices and participate an interview about the last 22 days

Early Identification in Older Adults of Risks to Sleep Health, Movement, and Cognition Using Ecological Methods

This proposal is a prospective study in which we will collect both subjective and objective quantitative data from older adults residing in independent living retirement communities, microlongitudinally (~1wk). Comprehensive measures of sleep health, cognition, and movement will be collected at community residences. The first phase of this project will recruit local, State College area adults over 70 residing in independent living facilities (e.g., Foxdale Village and The Village at Penn State). A second phase of data collection will extend to community-based older adults in rural parts of Centre and nearby counties.With this prospective, microlongitudinal information we will evaluate the characteristics of sleep predictive of daytime cognitive and neurobehavioral function and use those conclusions to inform nonpharmacologic, preventative interventions for older adults.

After consent, there will be 6 study visits at either Penn State University Park campus or at the participant's personal residence. Study participation lasts about 1 week.Participants wear non-invasive ambulatory watch-like activity monitors throughout (both day and night) the week. Participants complete electronic surveys and cognitive tests 6 times daily, with additional surveys at study conclusion.Sleep and daytime brain and heart activity are recorded (without video) using non-invasive clinical-type wire sensors applied to the face, head, and chest. Wires are worn on the face, head, and chest throughout the first two study nights. Wires are worn on the head and chest throughout the first two study days. There is not a sleep intervention in this study. We are collecting data about the typical sleep health of older adults and its relation to cognitive health.

Evaluating the consequences of mistimed light-emitting device use on cardiac activity and sleep health

The study is being done to find out whether wearing blue light-blocking glasses in the evening improves subsequent sleep. This is a 21-day study where participants will be asked to wear a sleep-monitoring “actiwatch”, an activity monitor, and a heart tracker, as well as to provide screenshots of their smartphone’s screen time app for three weeks. Participants will also be given the option to wear a blood pressure cuff on their arm for three days during the second half of each week, for a total of nine days.

Study participants will be asked to wear small devices on their wrist, hip, and shirt collar, and provide screenshots of their smartphone screen time app for three weeks. During the second and third weeks, participants will be asked to wear a pair of blue light-blocking glasses. Halfway through each week, participants will also be asked to wear a blood pressure monitor for 3 days/nights.There will be a total of seven in-person visits. At the first visit we will explain the study, ask interested participants to sign a consent form, collect information, and distribute study materials and devices. During all subsequent visits, participants will answer questionnaires and be provided additional study materials and devices.

Use of the Frequen-ZZZ Sleep Pad to Increase Restorative Sleep: A Proof-of-Concept Study

This research is a small, 8wk clinical trial testing the potential effects of an investigational device, Frequen-ZZZ/Sleepergize Sleep Pad, on the sleep of adults 40-65 years old. We aim to determine whether sleeping with the Sleep Pad, which creates an electromagnetic field around the sleeper, has an improving effect on sleep. Sleep will be primarily measured using a non-invasive clinical standard method, called polysomnography (PSG), for 6 separate nights in the personal residence of participants. Sleep will also be measured both day and night with a watch-like device that measures activity, and with surveys. We will look for changes in sleep quality, in sleep duration, and in the way that sleep is organized by the body. We will also measure changes in inflammation, which is related to sleep, from 3 blood samples collected during the study. There are 15-17 in-person appointments across the course of the study. With the data, we hope to also evaluate the feasibility and effect sizes of this non-pharmacological intervention to inform future research, and we plan to use data in support of a future FDA application for the device.

Participation involves sleeping with the investigational device, 6 separate nights of sleep monitoring in your home with standard equipment that is used in clinical settings, 3 blood draws, surveys, and wearing an activity watch, all over the course of an ~8wk participation period. There are 15-17 in-person appointments and about 15 active hours of engagement involved in the study.

The naturalistic reinforcement of obsessions and compulsions: An ecological momentary assessment study

The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between sleep patterns, thoughts, behaviors, and emotions in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). In the screening visit, participants will complete a brief interview and questionnaire to determine if they are eligible to participate in our study. Eligible participants will complete additional questionnaires and a training session on study procedures. Following this visit, for the next 7 days, participants will complete daily questionnaires and monitor their sleep by wearing a sleep watch. On day 4, participants will attend a brief compliance check Zoom visit where they will be informed about their overall compliance rate. Participants will be compensated with either course credit or an Amazon e-giftcard. Findings from this research may help improve understanding of OCD symptoms and sleep.

Screening Visit: This can be conducted in person or over Zoom. During this visit, we will administer a short questionnaire and an interview to determine if you are eligible to participate in the study. If you are eligible, you will complete questionnaires and a training session on study procedures. You will also receive a sleep watch, which you will be asked to wear consequently for 7 days. This visit will take approximately 1 hour and 25 minutes.7 Day Monitoring: For the next 7 days, you will complete several, brief daily questionnaires (7 questionnaires/per day) on your smartphone. Questionnaires will take place generally every 2 hours starting from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. You will also monitor your sleep by wearing a sleep watch and maintaining a daily sleep diary.Compliance Check (Day 4): On day 4, there will be a 5 minute compliance check Zoom meeting where you will be informed about your overall study compliance rate.

Feasibility of an experimental protocol for studying the effects of changes in bedtime on eating behavior in children

The purpose of this study is to find out if parents and children 6-10 years old are willing and able to follow a protocol to be used to study the effects of short and/or variable sleep in children. During each of three, one-week long periods, we are asking parents to follow one of the following bedtime schedules: 1) habitual bedtime; 2) 1 hour later bedtime; or 3) variable bedtime (+/- 1 hour of habitual bedtime each day). Children will wear a sleep tracker and parents will complete daily diaries. We will also ask participants questions about their experiences completing the protocol.

Participants will attend an enrollment visit at the Noll Laboratory at Penn State's campus where we will go over the study and give participants a sleep monitor. We will then ask parents to put their child to bed at different, specified times over the course of three weeks - normal bedtime in one week; 1 hour later than their usual bedtime in another week; and at a different assigned time each day that will be +/- 1 hour of their normal bedtime during the third week. During all three weeks, children will wear a sleep monitor on their wrist (similar to a Fitbit), and parents will answer a short survey each evening on their smartphone or other device. At the end of the study, participants will attend a final visit (either in-person or by Zoom depending on preference) to answer questions about their experience with the protocol.
