"Ability to resist sleep" is a measurement of how successfully a person can keep awake despite everything. In other words, it’s how well a person can stay awake despite how they feel, boredom, sleep debt, environment, or anything else.
We know that microsleeps only occur when we fail to resist sleep. That’s why SmartCap measures how well we can resist sleep.
“Ability to resist sleep” is a common, scientific measure used by sleep centres, universities and health professionals worldwide.
