A revolutionary contact-free smart snoring solution that slips under your pillow (RRP $299)
Smart Nora is an anti-snoring sleep gadget which automatically detects when you're snoring and then gently moves your head to prevent further snoring from occurring.
Snoring is caused by the relaxing of the soft-tissue in the breathing airways at night, so finding a permanent cure isn't easy. Snore aid solutions run the gamut from herbal sprays, nasal patches, lozenges, to mouthguards, nasal strips, and even surgery.
But there hasn't been a really 'smart' way to beat snoring yet. Until now, that is. Because Smart Nora Inc, a small company from San Francisco have invented a unique solution that promises to bring peaceful nights to long-suffering partners of snorers.
Having completed a successful campaign on Kickstarter, Nora promises to be the "first smart and non-invasive snoring solution that’s designed specifically to stop snoring before it wakes your sleeping partner".
Instead of attempting to 'cure' or prevent snoring, Nora instead detects the very first signs of snoring, and attempts to stop it before it wakes up the partner.
How does Smart Nora Work?
During the night, Nora listens to detect early sounds of snoring before they rise to be loud enough to wake up your sleeping partner. Once snoring is detected, Nora starts a gentle movement in your pillow.
It does this with a clever 2-part apparatus;
- a pebble-shaped bedside device which contains a microphone,
- a small inflatable pad that slips into your pillow.
As soon as snoring is detected, a small pump inflates the pillow pad, elevating your head slightly.
This is just enough to stimulate the relaxed throat muscles, after which the airway assumes its natural position allowing you to breathe normally again.
Nora comes with an iOs smartphone app which can monitor your night's sleep and potentially identify if your snoring indicates medical problems. The makers also hope to integrate Nora with Apple Health in the future.
Smart Nora reviews
Smart Nora was also featured as one of Oprah's Favorite Things of 2017. The TV host said; "If you sleep with a snorer, you're going to love the Smart Nora. It eliminates the need to elbow someone in the ribs to get him or her (him!) to stop. "
So if you or your partner is struggling with snoring, it's well worth checking out Nora. We think it's an interesting and innovation solution to a problem that affects lots of people.
