No one wants to be known as the person who snores. It’s embarrassing, and if it’s bad enough, it can actually impact your health. Whether you’re concerned about ripping the wallpaper off the walls with your nightly orchestra, or you want to get a more recuperative sleep, you need a solution to put your snoring to bed—no pun intended. What if we told you that there’s a way to stop snoring that doesn’t involve mouthguards, nose strips or your significant other shaking you awake at night?
What makes us snore?
First, we need to describe what snoring is and why it happens. Snoring occurs when the tissues in your nasal passages and throat relax during your sleep cycle. When this happens, the air you breathe creates vibrations in your soft tissues. These vibrations can range in sounds from what sounds like soft noise to the wall rattling versions that leave your spouse or partner glaring at you in the morning.
Why is snoring dangerous?
Beyond ruining the deep sleep of anyone around you, snoring has can present real dangers for your health. Severe snorers might actually suffer from a condition called obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). If you’ve been diagnosed with OSA you might have other troubling symptoms like:
- Breathing pauses during sleep
- Sore throat
- Morning headaches
- High blood pressure
- Difficulty concentrating
- Chest pain at night
- Restless sleep
What typical treatments are available for snoring?
There are a number of conventional solutions to stop your snoring. If your snoring isn’t OSA related, you can choose between mouthguards and nasal strips that work to correct your mouth or nasal passages. They help to stop relaxed tissues from vibrating because of airflow. If your snoring poses a health risk like paused breathing during the night, your physician might recommend that you use a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) mask to provide constant airflow to improve oxygen intake. If neither of the less invasive options are a solution for you, then the ultimate option is surgery to help open your airways and reduce the potential for snoring.
But what happens if you’re not a severe case?
If you don’t qualify as a serious or severe case, your only options are mouth guards, nasal strips and dilator straps. But these solutions can be frustrating to wear every night. These devices have been known to cause mouth pain, headaches, dry mouth, and excessive salivation. Doesn’t sound too great right? Then you might be better served by the noninvasive Smart Nora, has a snoring solution that works without the need for headgear.
What is Smart Nora?
Smart Nora is a smart device that simply slides under your own pillow. When connected to its powered base and remote sensor, it becomes a responsive tool that not only detects snoring but is activated to make it stop.
The Smart Nora Difference
The Smart Nora three-piece system includes a powered base, pillow insert and a remote device called the Pebble. The Pebble attaches to the wall or headboard above your pillow. The pillow insert connects to the base and then is slid into the pillowcase beneath your pillow. Once you set up the system, the Pebble “listens” for snoring as you sleep. Once snoring is detected, the pillow insert begins to inflate and deflate, helping your breathing patterns return to normal.
