How does Airmax® Sport work?The nose dilator (also called nasal spreader, nasal wing spreader or nose clip) from the Dutch company Airmax BV is inserted into the nose. 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 the transparent material and the discreet design, the nasal dilator is very unobtrusive.
The small storage box makes the Airmax® a practical travel companion.
Who is Airmax® Sport suitable for?Airmax® gently widens the narrowest area of the nasal entrance and can thus improve nasal breathing during sports. If we don't get enough air through our nose when doing sports, we often automatically open our mouth to breathe. By wearing the Airmax®, the switch from nose to mouth breathing can occur less frequently.
Do you have problems breathing through your nose while you sleep? Then our Airmax® Classic nasal dilator is right for you.
