- Available in Standard and Extra Large
- Made of breathable, moisture-wicking neoprene
- Prevents mouth breathing and air leaks when using nasal/nasal pillow masks
- Two Adjustment Points for a comfortable fit
The PureSom Ruby Adjustable Chin Strap is made of stretchable, breathable neoprene that holds the mouth closed during CPAP therapy to prevent air leaks out of the mouth. Chin straps prevent mouth opening which is the most common cause of dry mouth and high mask leak for nasal and nasal pillow CPAP mask users. This moisture wicking chin strap is adjustable at the crown of the head and at the base of the neck for a customizable fit that is comfortable and effective.
Chin Strap Dimensions:
The design of this chinstrap may inadvertently push your jaw back as you tighten the Velcro on the back of the neck. This may exacerbate your sleep apnea by increasing the number of obstructive breathing events. If this occurs, we recommend trying a dual-band chin strap such as the Knightsbridge Chin Strap.
How do I clean my PureSom Adjustable RubyChin Strap?
Hand wash your chin strap in warm water with a mild detergent or baby shampoo daily to remove any sweat and/or oils that may have accumulated overnight. While there are expensive neoprene cleaning materials available, they are usually not needed.
Do I need to use a chin strap with my CPAP therapy?
Chin straps are not a crucial component of CPAP therapy and are only necessary for those having trouble keeping their mouths closed when using a nasal or nasal pillow mask. Dry mouth/throat or dry nasal passages, despite the use of a humidifier, are common indications of mouth breathing during sleep. In these instances, we recommend wearing a chin strap under the CPAP mask to help keep the mouth closed for effective therapy.
