SomnoCushion® Comfort anti snoring backpack is a positioning aid that is worn like a traditional backpack at night. The positioning aid prevents you from sleeping on your back. Studies show that snoring and the obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) can be significantly reduced by sleeping in lateral position. Especially in supine position, the lower jaw and tongue fall back so that the tongue and the soft tissue narrow the upper airways.
SomnoCushion® Comfort is made in Germany. The backpack cover consists of a sturdy cotton fabric (65% polyester, 35% cotton) and contains an air cushion that can be inflated by mouth. The air pressure and the strap tension in the area of the stomach and shoulders can be individually adjusted and ensure a high wearing comfort. Due to its light weight, SomnoCushion® Comfort is almost imperceptible during sleep.
The variant SomnoCushion® Comfort differs from the SomnoCushion® Standard version by
The anti snoring backpack is perfect for travelling as it can be stowed in any luggage to save space.
SomnoCushion® Comfort is available in one size fits all and can be worn regardless of body height.
SomnoCushion® Comfort anti snoring backpack is especially suitable for patients with normal or low obesity (i.e. BMI up to 28). Patients with severe obesity, we recommend our SomnoCushion® Pro which is much more resilient. Patients suffering from obstructive sleep apnoea should consult their medical professional before starting this form of treatment.
The backback cover can be washed in a washing machine at 40°C and at a low speed frequency, without spinning, only air dry.
Since body positioning during sleep is accompanied by a training effect, most users do not need to use the positional sleep aids constantly every night after a few weeks.
