Knightsbridge’s anti-snoring chin strap lifts from under the jaw to produce a vertical force. The vertical force works with the natural rotation of the jaw, rather than against it, so a minimum of force is needed. Minimum force makes for maximum comfort. Sleep Apnea Chin Strap       For those with mild to moderate snoring produced when the mouth is open by a narrowing of the breathing passage between the tongue and the back of the upper throat, this is the chin strap you need.
      Invented by a theoretical physicist who snores and suffers from sleep apnea, Knightsbridge’s patent pending combination of vertical lift and DOUBLE BAND nonlinear force provides the most effective and comfortable anti-snoring chin strap on the market.

        The basic premise of anti snoring chin straps is that by holding the jaw closed the tongue is pulled upwards and forward, thereby providing a clearer breathing passage. Figure 1 shows a natural resting position of the tongue when the jaw is closed. Figure 2 shows a natural resting position of the tongue when the jaw is open. When the jaw is open, the tongue slides backwards and downwards somewhat and there is considerably less room at the back of the throat for the passage of air. In less extreme cases, the narrowing of the breathing passage might result in vibrations of the throat or tongue as air passes by, causing snoring. But in more extreme cases the tongue might actually come into contact with the back of the throat, as is shown in Figure 3, and block the passage of air, thereby producing obstructive sleep apnea.
        It should also be noted that snoring may be the result of vibrations in other portions of the breathing passage, such as in the sinuses. It should also be noted that snoring caused by a narrowing in the throat may not be the caused by the tongue or tongue position. For instance, a narrowing of the breathing passage may be caused by the weight of neck fat causing a collapse of the throat when the muscles are relaxed during sleep. For cases such as that shown in Figure 2 where there is a narrowing of the breathing passage due to open-mouth breathing, wearing an effective anti-snoring chin strap may lessen or completely cure snoring.
        Oral appliances are a treatment for sleep apnea which for some patients can solve the problem of the tongue causing a blockage by keeping the mouth closed. As shown in Figure 4, an oral appliance has the appearance of a sports mouth guard. Futhermore, the lower jaw may be forced slightly forwards by a sleep apnea oral appliance so as to provide additional room in the breathing passage. However, some people find it uncomfortable to sleep with an oral appliance. Furthermore, an oral appliance must be properly custom fitted. Including dentist visits as well as the actual device, an oral appliance may cost around $2000.
        It should be noted that sleep apnea websites generally do not mention chin straps as a treatment for sleep apnea. It seems this is because clinical studies on the effectiveness of chin straps for treating sleep apnea have provided mixed results. While some studies have shown that a chin strap can be helpful, other studies have shown the opposite. However, it is important to note that, to-date, clinical studies have only studied standard neoprene chin straps which, as pointed out above, are difficult to adjust so as to be both effective and comfortable, and push the jaw inwards, which is the direction opposite to that utilized by sleep apnea oral appliances.
