Here’s an interesting device that reportedly helps prevent snoring. It’s called the and it works by analyzing your snoring levels and through wireless technology, helps to increase your throat’s muscle tone, lessening the chances that you’ll snore. It’s made of two components: There’s a device under your mattress, and there’s a wrist band. Presumably, whenever it detects that you’re snoring, it sends a signal to your wrist device, causing some sort of mild stimulation, which will wake you just enough to lighten your sleep stage, but not enough to wake you up completely. It’s known that lighter stages of sleep can promote throat muscle tension.
In theory, it sounds great. But there’s a downside to this: it prevents you from staying in deep sleep. It’s just a high-tech version of getting your bedpartner’s elbow shoved in your ribs every time you snore.
Like most-anti-snoring gadgets out there, all it does is to cover up the snoring, with various degrees of success. In most cases, it ends up only delaying the diagnosis and treatment of obstructive sleep apnea.
Do you suffer from the “bruised rib syndrome”?
