The purposes of this study were to develop and verify the a portable nocturnal bruxism monitoring and analysis device equipped with a microcomputer, and to clinically apply the device to know the actual conditions of bruxism patients. EEPROM was installed in the device for the data recording, and after the data collection, the recorded data was entered into a personal computer via serial port. After confirming the accuracy of the device, a total of 30 subjects were enrolled in this study to monitor their bruxism activities for 3 nights. Bruxism self-aware group consisted of 14 subjects, 7 males and 7 females, and unaware group consisted of 16 patients, 8 males and 8 females. Most of the subjects reported that the new device was easy to handle. The average bruxism time per hour and the average bruxism lasting time were 223.8 ± 112.0 and 3.9 ± 2.9 s in the self-aware group, and 49.3 ± 38.3 and 0.8 ± 0.7 s in the unaware group, respectively. The bruxism self-aware group showed statistically longer average bruxism time per hour and the average bruxism lasting time. It was confirmed that the new bruxism monitoring and analysis device is practical for clinical application to monitor and analyze the electromyographic activities.
