Benefits Of A CPAP Chin Strap

Statistics have shown that over 80% of people are open mouth snorers. A range of CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) supplies and masks have proven to be beneficial in treating symptoms of people who are mouth snorers, or struggle with sleep apnea and other sleep disorders and related conditions. 

A range of high grade medical textiles such as hypoallergenic fabric, latex-free fabric and antibacterial fabric are used by the experts at Biomed to provide reliable, comfortable and irritation free results for all customers. Below are a few of the top questions answered to help you understand more about CPAP supplies, the role of a CPAP chin strap and the importance of high-grade medical textiles such as hypoallergenic fabric.  

What is a CPAP Chin Strap? 

CPAP supplies such as CPAP headgear are designed to assist with holding a sleep apnea face mask in place during the night to assist in treating sleep apnea or other sleep related conditions by limiting symptoms and providing added comfort. 

A CPAP chin strap is a cloth strap that wraps around both sides the head, along the forehead and cradles the jaw  to provide support during the night. A CPAP chin strap is often used to ensure that a person’s chin does not fall open during their sleep to limit symptoms such as dry mouth, jaw pain or leaking due to a CPAP mask.

Different types of CPAP Chin Straps

A range of high grade medical fabrics are used at Biomed for CPAP supplies such as hypoallergenic fabric, latex-free fabric and antibacterial. Utilising hypoallergenic fabric and a range of medical textiles ensure that the person is comfortable all night long when using the sleep mask, headgear or a CPAP chin strap, limiting the chance of skin irritation and reactions and is the most suitable fabric voice for those who suffer with allergies. 

The hypoallergenic fabric which is used in the manufacturing of a CPAP chin strap is lightweight, durable, and stretchy in order to provide comfort for the person wearing it. Our range of CPAP chin straps are designed and manufactured with latex free medical grade fabric which are used in our other CPAP supplies such as headgear. 

CPAP chin straps may be available in a range of other medical textiles such as neoprene or cotton, although at Biomed we utilise breathable, stretchy, and hypoallergenic fabric from Resmed as this material type is best suited for most people and skin types whilst providing the highest level of comfort. 

Why Wear a CPAP Chin Strap?

There are some signs which demonstrate when a CPAP chin strap may be a beneficial addition to your CPAP supplies such as when you wake up with a dry throat or mouth, you have a high leak rate or if your jaw continuously falls open during the night.

It is important to utilise a CPAP chin strap that is comfortable and will be able to be used all night without any problems in order to get the best results from the CPAP chin strap, or CPAP therapy. The pressure that is applied by the CPAP chin strap should be enough to keep the jaw shut comfortably during the night, without adding extra pressure or providing any discomfort. 

A CPAP chin strap is best used for people who experience mouth snoring, although is not best suited to people who are nose snorers, or any nasal issues such as a deviated septum as this may cause lack of oxygen being able to filter through.

How to reduce snoring with a chin strap

It is possible to reduce your snoring, and as this might give much needed comfort to those around us that may benefit from you getting a good night sleep, the market is flooded with anti-snoring products, which may all seem great. So how do you know which Chin Strap is the right one for you?

Firstly, you need to understand that a Chin Strap is usually made of fabric and it wraps around the head and cradles the jaw, in-order to keep the patients’ mouth closed during sleep. This reduces snoring considerably.

Although Chin Straps are not a total solution to stop snoring or sleep apnea, statistics show that more than 80% of people are open mouth snorers. So, if you are a Nose Snorer then a chin strap may not be the ideal choice for you as, by design, it primarily works best for Open Mouth Snorers. However, should you require a chin strap to help reduce your snoring, then you may wish to consider the following points:

  • Ask for Resmed Chinstraps, as they use the Biomed patented technology and provide the most comfort for patients
  • Determine how you sleep throughout the night, as an Anti-Snoring Chin Strap, must incorporate high quality Anti-Bacterial Fabric, which is comfortable in design, but also allows the patient to move freely without irritating the skin
  • Use a Medical Grade Fabric, which is strong enough to support the jaw, without being restrictive in feel

By using a Chin Strap to reduce snoring, you may also incur head-aches, as a result from the chin strap being too tight, so be sure to choose a quality Chin Strap that is well suited to your face.

At Biomed we understand the importance of providing comfortable Chin Straps to reduce snoring, and quality latex free chin straps, which are not harmful to patients’ skin.

At Biomed we are a medical fabric manufacturing company, who manufactures durable, lightweight and stretchy hypoallergenic fabrics which are used to manufacture CPAP chin straps, ensuring maximum comfort and reliability for patients. Biomed has a longstanding partnership with ResMed to supply latex free Chin straps and headgear, which has been providing superior patient comfort for decades.
