The SomnoShirt® anti snore shirt, also called sleep apnea t-shirt, is a simple and inexpensive way to prevent supine position during sleep when snoring or suffering from obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). It is therefore a successful entry level model for the correct sleeping position for positional snoring. In contrast to sleep in a lateral position, supine position encourages snoring and nocturnal breathing stops. Especially when sleeping on the back, the lower jaw and tongue can fall back. As a result, the upper airways are blocked by the tongue and the soft tissue.
SomnoShirt® is a high quality white t-shirt made of 100% heavy cotton. In the back area a pocket is sewn on. The pocket contains either an ultralight foam roller (Standard version) or an air cushion that is individually inflatable by mouth (Comfort version). The air cushion is especially suitable for traveling as it can easily be stowed away in luggae when deflated. Thus, a healthy sleep without annoying snoring is also possible on the go.
For the T-shirt change we offer replacement shirts without foam roller or air cushion. You can also order foam rolls and air cushions individually by telephone, fax or e-mail (but not via our online shop).
The SomnoShirt® anti snore shirt is suitable for patients with normal weight or slight overweight. We recommend our more robust SomnoCushion® Pro anti-snoring backpack for heavily overweight patients (BMI from 28/29). Patients suffering from obstructive sleep apnoea should consult their medical professional before starting positional therapy with positioning aids.
The SomnoShirt® anti snore shirt is available in the unisex sizes S, M, L, XL, XXL and XXXL. Our recommendation: The anti snore shirt should fit tightly to the body and should therefore not be ordered too large.
The anti snore shirt can be washed in a washing machine at 40°C and at a low speed frequency, without spinning, only air dry.
Since positional therapy is accompanied by a training effect, most users no longer have to wear positional sleep devices every night after a few weeks.
