Are you disturbed by snoring? Perhaps you are a snorer yourself, or know someone who snores? Well, there is now help at hand. The pioneering Eezyflow sleep collar reduces snoring and also works as a travel collar – so you can get better sleep, and a better quality of life.
Eezyflow sleep collar is a top-of-the-range medical device for snorers, made of high-quality materials including pure polyurethane foam, known as memory foam, and is designed to reduce or eliminate snoring. Its founder, Ann-Christine Krook, explains the idea behind the sleep collar: “I have lived with snorers since I was ten years old. 30 years of frustration and a great many sleepless nights helped me see a pattern,” she says. “The snoring stopped in a certain sleep position, on the side with the head slightly tilted back and the mouth closed.”
Krook devoted herself to finding a solution and studied medical data, attended sleep congresses and conferences, and met with a number of doctors and researchers in order to learn about snoring, its causes and risks. She discovered that the sleep position she was trying to attain could be compared to the so-called recovery position, in which an unconscious but breathing person can be placed as part of first aid treatment.
Social snoring and sleep apnea
Snoring can affect both men and women, and as recognised by Krook, snoring has been a global social problem for decades. The definition of social snoring is to snore without breathing pauses or with less than five pauses per hour of sleep. It can have a negative effect on health, memory and mood, and disturb sex life, family relationships and working life. It might eventually lead to sleep apnea syndrome, which is classified as a disease that needs to be treated.
The ground-breaking Eezyflow sleep collar has been tested by medical experts in cases of social snoring. It can also be used in combination with other anti-snoring measures, such as a snoring rail or nasal dilator, and works perfectly as a travel collar when travelling.
The physiologically designed Eezyflow sleep collar is soft, relieves pressure, and is adjustable in height. The purpose is to free the airways by holding the head slightly tilted back, the jaw slightly advanced, and the mouth closed. While Eezyflow cannot provide relief for everyone, it can certainly help many people get a reduction or elimination in snoring and obtain a better night’s sleep – and thus, a better quality of life.
What is snoring? Snoring is the vibration of respiratory structures and the resulting sound due to obstructed air movement during breathing while sleeping. In some cases, the sound may be very soft, almost silent, but in most cases, it can be loud and unpleasant. Snoring during sleep may be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Research shows that snoring is one of the factors of sleep deprivation. The severity of obstructive sleep apnea is classified as follows*: • Normal sleep (social snoring): less than five events per hour of sleep. • Mild sleep apnea: five to 14 events per hour of sleep. • Moderate sleep apnea: 15 to 29 events per hour of sleep. • Severe sleep apnea: 30 or more events per hour of sleep. *Information from www.sleephealth.org Eezyflow – a handcraft • CE-marked medical device. • Manufactured in Sweden and Denmark. • Cast in specially made molding tool. • Collar made of soft memory foam. • Height adjustable. • Fabrics, certified 100 per cent organic cotton. • Weighs only 180 grammes.
