Atopic dermatitis (AD) has a significant impact on patients' quality of life, and due to pruritus it particularly affects sleep. Actigraphy is a well-recognized objective tool that is used in sleep medicine. Its relevance for assessing sleep in patients with AD has been shown by several studies. This study aimed to evaluate the sleep of patients with AD and to compare it with that of healthy volunteers using wrist actigraphy and a smartphone application.
