On the rare occasion that I forget to put it in the device my sleep deteriorates immediately. It’s invaluable.” Read more

Over several years I have experienced mild sleep apnoea and, unfortunately for my wife, loud snoring. I have tried several different mandibular advancement devices over the years.

Mohammed was diagnosed with Severe Sleep Apnoea in 2018.
“For the first year after my diagnosis, I had a CPAP machine in the home, but I really struggled with it, due to the anxiety of the mask being on my face all night. When I saw my Sleep Consultant, I was advised that I should not drive, and my driving license has now been revoked for more than 2 years.
