Additional information

There is only a handful of facilities that have a sleep lab in the Kansai region. We have one that is approved by the Society of Sleep Research. The hospitalís director is a specialist in the field who has written many treatises and commentaries and has given many lectures. He also appears frequently on TV shows, including the news and informational programs.

Future development

A lot of patients come to the Lab from afar and the waiting time for appointments are long. To deliver hope, specific measures are currently being studied for a Sleep Disorder Treatment Center, which will have several sleep labs.
