70% of the snorers only snore when they sleep on their back.
Because the tongue partly obstructs the airway when you sleep on your back, so technically, by turning to your side the tongue will no longer obstruct the airway and you’ll stop snoring. This is exactly the main reason for the tennis ball taped to the back technique.
What if you snore and a device will “shake” you a bit to stop snoring? Wouldn’t be great?
This is where Sleep.ai helps: While being asleep, the app detects any snoring sounds, and once found it sends a signal to the wearable, ensuring that the snorer adjusts its sleeping position, guaranteeing quite nights.
Currently, Sleep.ai is working on the Anti-Snoring Wearable, and the free Do I Snore smartphone app. Through Sleep Positioning Training and biofeedback, this innovative solution is able to make the snorer turn to its side as soon as the snoring starts, effectively stopping the snoring. The smartphone app is a medical validated algorithm, that is able to filter/distinguish specific snoring sounds during the night. The through Bluetooth connected wearable will receive a signal and will vibrate.
The first working prototypes are done, and Sleep.ai is ready to make first steps into the production phase of the Anti-Snore Wearable. To boost the first produced batch of wearable, Sleep.ai launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign.
