A new buzzer could be the answer to many people’s prayers! The battery-powered device could stop your partner’s snoring by simply sticking it to the forehead.
Known as Somnibel, the device helps stop the habit in 1 in three snorers, the Mail reported.
The plaster-sized buzzer is designed to help people suffering obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a serious condition that occurs when a person suddenly stops breathing for a few seconds or minutes while sleeping.
The condition, which causes loud snoring, can increase one’s risk of stroke and heart disease.
In many cases, OSA is aggravated by people sleeping on their backs.
The Somnibel buzzer, developed by scientists at Araba University in Spain, is designed to alert people when they’re sleeping on their backs.
It sends out vibrations when the wearers roll on to their back and continues to vibrate until they return to the side position.
According to their website, the device “reduces the incidence of sleep apnoea and/or positional snoring.
It added: “It consists of a small and light device attached to the forehead that applies a soft vibration while the patient sleeps supine (on their back) to induce him to change position, thus reducing the incidence of sleep breathing events, whether apnoeas or positional snoring.”
The device also helps wearer sleep better, improves blood pressure, and also enhances the quality of life.
Professor Jaydip Ray, an ear, nose and throat consultant, said to the Daily Mail: “Simple snoring is a common social and medical problem that adversely affects many people.
“Easy to use, unobtrusive wearable devices using miniaturised accelerometers are a welcome solution for many of them. This initial study is encouraging.”
