Who we are

Market pioneers and inventors with a vision

We are market pioneers and the inventor of the BreathOpticsTM fibre-optic sensing technology. We are focused on developing healthcare and homecare products for infants and elders like the award winning Sleep-Mat, a patented baby sleep monitor. With a strong grounding in R&D and manufacturing, our product reach the market globally through a credible network of brand partners.


The heart of a vision

We respect life and are driven to protect it. This common understanding is deeply engrained in our culture and shapes the direction of what we do. Our purpose is to harness the human value of technology, applying solutions designed by engineers who are driven by a desire to protect lives and empower families with a peace of mind. Featuring two overlaying crosses in red and purple, the OSPICON logo represents products that assure users safety and wellness, and promise a creative potential that knows no boundaries.


The Sleep-Mat

The Sleep-Mat is the world’s first advanced baby sleep monitor. Unlike prevailing technology, which relies on pressure-sensing pads to sense movements and non-movements, the Sleep-Mat’s fibre-optic sensors detect an infant’s breath count and captures its breathing pattern while the infant is sleeping on the Sleep-Mat. This information is communicated through supporting smart apps, giving parents real-time situation awareness and alerting them to instances of irregular breathing, offering them an effective and unobtrusive way to observe an infant’s health and wellness holistically. The smart apps, which are able to relate the breath count data to represent an infant’s sleep quality, provide a wide range of information important to parents around the world.
