Over all, third of the subjects dropped out before the research finished. Half of them designated by doctor to dropped out, 18 % of them responded newspaper advertising and apply to be volunteer. "Very likely those people who had high pre-treatment motivation level feel more comfortable with technology, and/or had different expectation about appropriate treatment with their sleep disorders," said Vincent and Lewycky.

With comparison, in controlled group, 61 % reported had no changes and 30 % said they feel little change, while one person reported had much better change and one other person said very bad result.
