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.

Why you should use latex free CPAP fabric in your Mask

It is not easy at the best of times to get a sound night sleep, whilst sleeping with a CPAP Mask. However, in-order to minimise discomfort and to also stay free from any skin irritations, patients should use Latex Free CPAP Mask Fabric.

Biomed holds a patent for quality, high grade Latex Free Fabric, which is used in all CPAP mask applications.

What are the benefits of using Latex Free CPAP Fabric?

The most common benefits of using a Latex Free Fabric, would be in its ability to mould with your face, whilst sleeping on a pillow. The soft fabric allows patients to move freely, without worrying about having hard plastic pushing against their skin during the night.

With its soft-sponge like feel, the CPAP fabric also ensures the mask fits firmly against the patients face, whilst allowing the CPAP mask to expand and contract when the patient moves whilst asleep. By doing so, the CPAP Fabric encourages a firm seal thus reducing any leaks.

By using Latex Free Fabric in your CPAP Mask, will ensure skin irritation is reduced to a minimum, however there are many different types of medical grade CPAP fabrics, which can provide patient improvements in their comfort levels. Some of which include, Brushed Velvet Fabric, Brushed Lycra Fabric, Spandex Net Fabric and Anti-Bacterial Fabric just to name a few.

Research also shows, the majority of patients are side sleepers and as a consequence, require a latex free CPAP strap which is light-weight and takes up less surface area on their face. Resmed provide quality CPAP masks for side sleepers, that use the patented Biomed technology.
