Those with sleep apnea with snoring issues can now keep those around them comfortable when they sleep without having to compromise their own comfort. A new compact device can easily fight off snoring while you breezily sleep the night away.
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder where in the airway collapses or becomes blocked during sleep resulting to snoring, breathing pauses or choking during sleep.
(CPAP) Continuous Positive Airway Pressure devices or machines promotes continuous breathing for those suffering with sleep apnea. CPAP machines increase air pressure in throat so that the airway doesn't collapse.
You know longer have to look like an effin' experiment while wearing an anti-snoring cpap mask with hose just to fight off snoring thanks to inventor/entrepreneur Stephen Marsh. This compact, battery-operated device called Airing is slightly bigger as the tip of your nose with a 2 inches of length, 1.5 width and 1 inch of thickness. This device can generate the same maximum air pressure that a CPAP machine can. The pressure generated by regular CPAP machines ranges from 1 to 20 centimeters of water (cmH2O).
"Airing device has been designed to generate the full range of treatment pressures up to and in excess of a treatment number of 20," as stated in their Indiegogo FAQs.
Fix the snoring in public during flights or long commute.
Dr. Michael J. Cima, Airing's technical adviser, a David H. Koch chair at MIT Engineering shared, "I get excited about working on important clinical problems where patients benefit. Airing is innovative to address the most important issue from the patient perspective in CPAP therapy; patient comfort."
Airing is currently in the process of building their prototype for testing and later on get the FDA clearance insurance approval. Airing has already closed in with $1,668,861 of total funds raised in Indiegogo
. The device is planned to price at only $3.
"By adopting the best design and manufacturing practices from successful consumer products in the areas of health and electronics, we are able to deliver a device that has an end user price of about $3.00, making it inexpensive enough for single use."
Consumers will be able to get the device in September 2018.
I love the fact that this device is actually wearable outside the comforts of your home. It would be weird to see someone wearing the usual CPAP mask, complete with hose controller in public.
It's also comforting to know that at least people can find ways to resolve snoring in public places.
