What is SomnoCushion® Standard?The SomnoCushion® Standard anti-snoring backpack is worn like a conventional backpack at night. Studies show that snoring and pauses in breathing as a result of obstructive sleep apnea occur more frequently when lying on the back than when lying on the side. SomnoCushion® Standard prevents you from lying on your back at night and encourages you to sleep on your side or stomach.
- Backpack cover includes a practical air cushion
- Comfortable to carry due to the light weight of the backpack
- Individual adjustment options for air cushion pressure and belt tension
- Made in Germany: Developed and manufactured in Germany
How does SomnoCushion® Standard work?Especially in the supine position, the lower jaw and tongue can fall back and the upper airways can be narrowed. The integrated air cushion in the back area of the SomnoCushion® Standard prevents you from turning onto your back while you sleep and encourages you to sleep on your side.
First, insert the deflated cushion into the backpack cover from either the top or bottom. Then inflate the air cushion with your mouth so that the backpack cover is completely filled. Push the valve into the air bag. Adjust the straps so that the SomnoCushion® Standard is centered on your back and fits as tightly as possible and without any leeway. Individual adjustment options for the air cushion pressure and the belt tension in the stomach and shoulder area ensure a high level of comfort.
The inflatable air cushion, which is suitable for both SomnoCushion® Standard and SomnoCushion® Pro, can also be purchased separately.
Carrying the backpack regularly allows the body to get used to sleeping on its side and thus creates a kind of learning effect. After a while, many users no longer have to wear the positioning aid every night.
For whom is SomnoCushion® Standard suitable?SomnoCushion® Standard is recommended for people of normal weight or just slightly overweight. The backpack is available in one size and can be used regardless of body size. If you are very overweight, we recommend our SomnoCushion® Pro anti-snoring backpack.
SomnoCushion® Standard can also be used to support patients who already use other aids (e.g. breathing masks, mandibular advancement devices, nasal dilators) at night.
