Surgeon from Kerala designs a device to prevent snoring

The wearable device -- named 'Sleep on Side' made by surgeon R.S. Rejith can be worn across the body

A wearable device designed by an ENT surgeon here is expected to treat sleep apnea and snoring by changing the habit of sleeping on the back to sleeping on the side. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is one of the main causes for snoring. The wearable device -- named 'Sleep on Side' made by surgeon R.S. Rejith -- is more of a clothing accessory with a ball stitched at the centre. It can be worn across the body, with the ball on the backside. (Read: Top 6 reasons men (and women) snore)

Apnea means a period of cessation or inability to breathe for more than 10 seconds, said Rejith. Sleep on Side' can be worn across the body so that the ball is at the centre back of the body. It is helpful for sleep position modification, changing the habit of sleeping on the back to sleeping on the side, the surgeon said. Priced around Rs.1,000, the new wearable device has been manufactured by Myform, Coimbatore and will be available online at www.sleeponside.com from December 15, 2015 and later at other e-commerce sites.
