Sometimes it can be difficult to user your CPAP, for example on a long-haul flight or somewhere without reliable mains power. You don't want to do without the benefits of sleep apnoea treatment so what can you do? You either use a battery with your CPAP machine or opt for a temporary alternative to CPAP, called Mandibular Advancement.
A Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD) or Splint (MAS) is a mouth guard-like dental appliance which gently pulls your lower jaw and tongue forward, creating more space at the back of the throat, reducing and sometimes preventing apnoea and snoring from happening.
The Somnofit is one of the best and most comfortable of such splints which you can mold yourself. This makes for a good temporary alternative to CPAP, especially for mild OSA.
The Somnolis MAD provides a low-cost method of evaluating the effectiveness of mandibular advancement for your snoring or OSA. It is effectively a trial, which if effective allows you to purchase a longer-term MAD with confidence. Mandibular advancement is a proven method of treating snoring and mild to moderate OSA, so why not try and Somnolis to find out how this method of treatment could benefit you?
The Somnofit Mandibular Advancement Device offers a proven alternative treatment to CPAP for snorers and mild OSA sufferers. The simple boil-and-bite method gives a customised fit that brings the lower jaw forward, creating better airflow and reducing the pressure that causes snoring and apnoeas. The Somnofit offers an affordable and less-invasive method of treatment.
