What SOMNOVA can do?

When snoring is detected, Somnova gently moves your body to its side and relieves snoring.

Somnova would not raise your body totally up. The speed of inflation and deflation is very slow, which you could even not perceive an obvious change. This process is so gentle that it would not wake you up.

 

 

 

 

When you are asleep, it will monitor your body movements and breathing patterns and adjust itself to stop you snoring.

Two Ways to Use

Put it under your bedsheet, you can even not aware of its existence.

 

The Mobile App

 

 

Why SOMNOVA is amazing?

Why do people snore and how dangerous is snoring?  
Generally speaking, snoring is the result of the relaxation of the uvula and soft palate. These tissues can relax enough to partially block the airway, resulting in irregular airflow and vibrations. These vibrations are heard as snoring.    

 


Snoring is known to cause sleep deprivation to snorers and those around them, as well as daytime drowsiness , irritability, lack of focus and decreased libido. It has also been suggested that it can cause significant psychological and social damage to sufferers.Multiple studies reveal a positive correlation between loud snoring and risk of heart attack (about +34% chance) and stroke (about +67% chance).


How do people feel when they have snoring problems?

There are different kinds of snoring patients.In medical science we define that During sleeping mild snoring patients will stop breathing 5 times per hour,moderate snoring patients will stop breathing 20 times per hour,and severe snoring patients will stop breathing 40 times per hour or even more. Each time stop breathing will longer than 10 seconds.  

1, mild snoring patients will feel chest tightness, as in the crowded subway.
2, moderate snoring patients will feel like after climbing stairs breath.
3, severe snoring patients will appear hypoxia or sudden death


How can SOMNOVA relieves snoring?

Although there are many proposed snore solutions, it is uneasy for people to find an effective and non-invasive product. Sleeping on the side instead of the back is a simple and effective technique to reduce snoring (which prevent the tongue from blocking the throat). The problem is that it is hard for snorer to keep sleeping on the side all night and nobody has the patience to continuously overnight just nudge or push their partner very gently to stop their snoring. 

 

There is a snore monitor and a mini-pump in the gray case placed beside the bed. The mat consists of two airbags. When the case perceives your snoring, it will pump air slowly into one of the two airbags. As one of the airbag inflates, it softly pushes you to your side and encourages your body to remain on its side. Then snoring is reduced!

The Science of SOMNOVA: 

The only way to enjoy a better sleep  

There are researches found that approximately 25-60% of patients with obstructive sleep apnea are correlated with sleep position. Avoidance of the supine posture is efficacious for reducing the events of apnea. And the optimal sleep position reduced mild snoring by more than 80%.  

1.Joosten, S.A., et al., Supine position related obstructive sleep apnea in adults: pathogenesis and treatment. Sleep Med Rev, 2014. 18(1): p. 7-17.

2.Lee, J.B., et al., Determining optimal sleep position in patients with positional sleep-disordered breathing using response surface analysis. J Sleep Res, 2009. 18(1): p. 26-35.
 
Snore judgment is key of our technology. SOMNOVA will continually cooperated with medical institution to get more snore sample. This will help our acoustic expert and engineers optimize a more precise snore judgment algorithm. Each time we issue a newly optimized algorithm, users can get it by free updates.


The Experiments on SOMNOVA

We did a lot of experiment on somnova,which include the falling test、temperature test、weight test、noise test and clinical test. we make sure SOMNOVA is a reliable and effective production.SOMNOVA really help people to relief snoring and keep people refreshing when they get up.

The Design of SOMNOVA

It is simple and easy to use SOMNOVA.

 

 

 

The Birth of SOMNOVA

Traditional method of Positional Therapy  

During the War of Independence, small cannonballs were sewn into the backs of uniforms to keep soldiers from snoring and alerting the enemy. Sleeping on the side to stop snoring can also improve their sleep qualities. Therefore they can have better physical strengths to fight for the independence of America. Positional therapy has a long history and is commonly recognized by medical community. Some traditional methods is to put a pillow or a ball under your back to make it uncomfortable to lie on your back.

Why we design a smart mat?  

We have tried many traditional methods of positional therapy , such as putting a pillow under the back. It is very uncomfortable and uneasy to fall asleep. In the sleeping, because of this discomfort, it is easy to lie on the back and start to snore again. We hope to invent an automatic device that help you to sleep on the side only when you are snoring, but you can also lie on the back when you don't snore. Yes, this is SOMNOVA.  

Why SOMNOVA is not a smart pillow?  

Actually we have made many tests on inflatable pillow. But there are lot of nerves in the head and therefore it is very sensitive. When pushing the head, it is very easy to wake up.  

On the other hand, it is possible that the airway becomes more narrow when pushing your head. Although you may not snore, but the next morning you may be more tired.

After more than a year of research and development, we came out with SOMNOVA.

The SOMNOVA System

● One power adapter  

● One control case (Please put the case 60-70cm away from your head, and the sound reception hole should turn in the direction of your head.)

● Air tube made of silica gel  

● One inflatable mat ( formed of two independent air bags )  

● One cloth cover (There are four fastener in each corner, which can connect with corresponding four fastener in the mat)

Team SOMNOVA   

I am Ken, founder of Somnova. We are a young, dynamic and creative team. As a group of young people with American dreams, in this equal society, we believe that we can eventually be successful by our own efforts. Now we are very close to the success and we really need your support.  

Positional therapy is a good snore solution which has a long history. As early as the War of Independence, in order to have a better sleep, cannonballs were sewn to soldiers’ uniforms to keep them sleeping on the side and relieve snoring. Good rest without snoring helped them more energetic to fight for their dreams, the victory in the war and the independence of America.  

Somnova is based on this traditional positional therapy and combined with modern science and technology. With Somnova, it is more comfortable and more effective to stop your snoring by helping sleeping on the side.  

The workplace is like a battlefield. If you also have an American dream, you need to keep energetic to fight for success just like those soldiers. Or you even don’t know why you are lost in the American selection. Somova helps you relieve snoring and have a good sleep. Then you would be full of vigor to meet challenges every day.  

So fight for American dream with Somnova.
