What is the SleepPro anti-snoring chin support strap?
SleepPro’s chin support strap is an effective way to prevent snoring. It is designed to keep the jaw closed. This enables the snorer to breathe through the nose whilst asleep, which helps to reduce or eliminate snoring. The chin strap is made from soft, elastic and non-irritable material, and is suitable for both men and women.
What is this device used for?
In most cases, snoring is caused by an obstruction of the upper airway during sleep, leading to mouth breathing. During sleep, the throat relaxes and the tongue falls into the airway in the back of the throat, causing a vibration in the soft tissues. It is this vibration that creates the sound of snoring. The chin support strap is designed to keep the jaw closed. As a result, the tongue remains in place and the airways open. This enables open-mouthed snorers to breathe normally through their nose rather than through their mouth. This reduces, if not eliminates, the chance of snoring. An added plus is that it will even reduce that dry mouth feeling during sleep.
How does this anti-snoring device work?
The anti-snoring chin support strap is worn across the chin and around the back and the top of the head. It is designed to keep the jaw closed and to ensure that it remains in an advanced position. The chin support strap is adjustable and therefore suitable for larger and smaller sized heads. The strap can be washed in a washing machine.
How to use this device
Position the strap over the chin and rear part of the head before you go to sleep. When using the strap for the first time, simply adjust the Velcro straps for a snug fit. The chin strap is made from soft, elastic and breathable material for superb comfort and undisturbed sleep. See the package leaflet for more information on how to use the SleepPro chin support strap.
When not to use the SleepPro anti-snoring chin support strap
The chin support strap is only suitable for adults. Only use this anti-snoring device if breathing through the nose is possible.
