Some people are new to sleep apnea and are not tolerant to CPAP therapy. There are some alternatives they can try, including dental applications, and positional assists. Respshop now offers Philips NightBalance and Bongo Rx for those who require an alternative to CPAP therapy.
Approved to help prevent Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), the NightBlance is an alternative route for people with sleep apnea who are unable to adapt to CPAP therapy machines or for CPAP therapy users who like to travel but do not want to carry their CPAP devices.
Positional assist is an inflated bag wearing on the back. It prevents users lying on their back and reduces the possibility of the snores.
However, all alternatives are less effective and not proven to work 100%. Some of them may be painful, like a surgery. And all of these therapies' effect usually last quite short time. We still highly recommended CPAP Therapy , which is the only industry and FDA approved way for sleep apnea.
