How does Airmax® Classic work?The nasal dilator (also called nasal spreader, nasal wing spreader or nose clip) from the Dutch company Airmax BV is inserted into the nose at night or, if necessary, during the day. It widens the nostrils by gently spreading them. This can improve the air supply when inhaling and exhaling.
Wash the Airmax® with water before and after each use. Insert the nasal dilator symmetrically into your nose until the Airmax® connection bar rests on your nose bridge. Thanks to its discreet design, the nasal dilator is very unobtrusive.
The small storage box makes the Airmax® a practical travel companion.
For whom is Airmax® Classic suitable?Airmax® gently widens the narrowest area of the nasal entrance and can thus reduce the feeling of a stuffy nose. The nasal dilator is suitable, for example, for colds, allergies, pregnancy, air travel, deformity of the nostrils or nasal septum, narrowing of the nasal valves. In consultation with your doctor, Airmax® can be a gentle and drug-free alternative to nasal drops or sprays.
Snoring noises are caused by fluttering movements of the soft tissue in the pharynx. Impeded nasal breathing can increase snoring. The Airmax® Classic nasal dilator facilitates nasal breathing.
