Studies prove that the number of breathing stops during sleep in supine position is often twice as high as in lateral position. If patients primarily snore when lying on their back, this is referred to as positional sleep apnoea syndrome or snoring. By avoiding the supine position during sleep, the number of breathing stops and snoring is reduced or prevented.
HOW DOES THE SOMNIBEL SLEEP POSITION TRAINER WORK?
The Somnibel sleep position trainer is placed to the chest or forehead using a hypoallergenic adhesive. Somnibel is able to detect the sleeping position of the patient during sleep. As soon as the patient lies on the back, Somnibel sleep position trainer generates a gentle vibrating stimulus. This encourages the patient to change the sleeping position. If the patient does not change position, the stimulus intensity increases 30 seconds later. In total, there are four intensity levels.
