For over 25 years CIDELEC has designed and manufactured polygraphy and polysomnography devices for the diagnosis of sleep disorders based on a tracheal sound sensor the PneaVoX.

These years of experience have given CIDELEC a recognized expertise in this field. The company is continually improving its products and software for the diagnosis of sleep disorders, by fully engaging in research and development as well as training and customer service.

CIDELEC is proficient in all aspects of the product’s life, from research to maintenance, through design, manufacturing and training. This overall control allows CIDELEC to remain highly reactive to customer’s needs.


CIDELEC was created through a collaboration initiated in 1987 between two research entities: The Angers University Hospital Sleep Center (Pr. Jean-Louis RACINEUX and Dr. Nicole MESLIER) and the Research Laboratory of the Ecole Supérieure d’Electronique de l’Ouest (directed by Mr. PINGUET). This collaboration led to the patent claim for the detection of respiratory events by tracheal sounds (the PneaVoX); the technology mainly responsible for the specificity and excellence of the diagnoses made with our equipment.

CIDELEC was created by Mr. PINGUET in 1990 to exploit this patent.


Continuing this original tradition of “academic research”, CIDELEC is constantly investing in research, hand-in-hand with various French and International sleep research laboratories. Our research contributes to continuous improvement in the specificity and sensitivity of diagnosis, while taking into account practical factors such as the simplicity of sensors placement and patient comfort. We regularly contribute to academic research through scientific publications and communications at several meetings (ERS, ESRS, SFRMS, etc).
