Diametos makes snoring diagnostics
as easy as snoring itself
Diagnosis of snoring is often complicated, time consuming, and costly. Today, it is usually performed by specialized sleep laboratories, sleep medicine practices or clinics.
There is no easy way for patients to diagnose sleep apnea. The consequence: a high rate of undiagnosed patients with dangerous sleep apnea. We founded Diametos to simplify the diagnosis.
The Diametos team researches and develops technologies for intelligent diagnostic support for physicians.
Diametos makes snoring diagnostics as easy as snoring itself.
Our approach: Artificial Intelligence analyses the sound of snoring, and it does so in the comfort of your own bed at home. This makes precise medical diagnostics widely available, universally applicable, and convenient for patients.
Our Snorefox medical app answers the question “Is my snoring dangerous?” and the Somnofox medical device tells the sleep specialist “Where exactly is the snoring coming from?”

Snorefox provides an easy risk assessment of Sleep Apnea
With the medical-grade app Snorefox, Diametos offers an easy way to assess the risk of Sleep Apnea. The assessment is performed with just your mobile phone, at home in the comfort of your own bed within the private, familiar sleeping environment.
Is Sleep Apnea risk screening important?
Often snoring is simply disturbing and annoying. But in some cases, serious Sleep Apnea is the underlying reason. Sleep Apnea causes periodic breathing interruptions during sleep. It prevents deep sleep phases and real rest.
Why does Sleep Apnea often go undetected?
Because of non-specific symptoms, existing Sleep Apnea often remains undiscovered and untreated over a long period of time. In the long run, this can result in elevated blood pressure and cardiovascular diseases. People with Sleep Apnea have a significantly increased risk for heart attack or stroke.
Why should I use Snorefox?
With Snorefox, you – as a snorer – can assess your risk of having Sleep Apnea – easily and conveniently, at any time you like and without the need for specialized sleep centers. Take care of your health and analyze your snoring.

Where does my snoring come from?
EXCLUSIVELY FOR PHYSICIANS
Somnofox for a targeted analysis of the anatomical snoring cause
With Somnofox, Diametos offers the world’s first and only medical device for the analysis of the anatomical causes of snoring.
Why is the anatomical cause of snoring relevant?
To treat snoring successfully, the attending physician needs to know the anatomical reason for the generation of the snoring sounds. Snoring is an anatomically highly complex process and can be caused by many different factors. For example, vibrations of the palate or tongue can cause the typical snoring sound.
How does Somnofox support physicians?
Somnofox can – individually for each and every patient – analyze the anatomical reasons for snoring and thus support the physician in choosing the best anti-snoring therapy.
How does Somnofox work?
Somnofox is provided by the attending sleep specialist to the patient. Using artificial intelligence, the acoustic subtleties of the snoring sounds are analyzed, and the sleep specialist receives a detailed report of the anatomical causes of the snoring.
