This paper proposes a virtual sleep sensor in order to monitor sleep disorder for an individual, and presents a therapy service model for the sleep management. PSQI score is usually used clinically to evaluate the levels of sleep disorder. However, The PSQI score which was only gleaned through an interview on a questionnaire can not be accurate because it is difficult to remember something about sleep during the last month. In order to resolve this problem, This paper presented the virtual sleep sensor that has a protocol to receive sleep information through physical sensors and smart algorithm. In addition, the virtual sleep sensor can be contributed to a service model for sleep therapy when it is combined with light therapy and aromatherapy. Finally, based on the findings of the experiment, its effectiveness was confirmed in the proposed model.
