German scientists have come up with a revolutionary approach to help those suffering from heavy snoring condition.
This time, they developed a special pacifier for adults, which is meant to bring immediate relief.
Specialists from the University of Goettingen created a device that enables those suffering from snoring to enjoy sound sleep themselves and make sure that their family members get their rest at night as well. The device resembles an ordinary baby’s pacifier. It uses the same principle as swallowing. When sucks on the pacifier, the tongue rests behind teeth. When the tongue remains motionless, soft palate no longer vibrates and consequently it prevents that annoying sound from occurring in the first place. In addition, while holding the pacifier tightly in his mouth, the person is not inclined to open his mouth.
According to one of the experts in the field of snoring Wilfred Andjelka (from the University of Goettingen), they managed to cure 7 our of 10 patients from snoring.
The expert states that they still need a little bit more time to learn to use the device properly in order to reach outstanding results.
