Snoring To Be Reduced By New Device Called 'True Sleep'

A new device launched in Britain reduces snoring using small impulses of electricity. This innovative device is called 'True Sleep' and comes from Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation // (TENS) technology, which has long been used by physiotherapists. The device is also used in childbirth to alleviate pain.

The device comes in the form of a wristband and sensors built into its casing pick up vibrations in the air from the snoring sound.

Sensors trigger an almost imperceptible electric pulse which fires up the arm and prompts the sleeper to turn over. Experts agree that changing positions during deep sleep is the best way to stop snoring.

The device runs for eight hours continuously through the night before automatically switching off - after a solid sleep for everyone, it said.

"It's much less unsightly than a great big mask or plaster strip stuck to your partner's face as you snuggle up," said Robert Zeiderman, director of True Sleep, the firm that manufactures the device.

"You would never know you were wearing it - even when the pulse fires. You can't feel it, but sub-consciously it will trigger the impulse to turn over, and that has been proven to help stop snoring."

While True Sleep will not solve the problem, it would dramatically cut down on its severity, he said.

Snoring is a common problem, affecting one in three men and one in 10 women.
