Snore Stopper™ is a revolutionary device designed to reduce snoring through a patent nerve stimulation process. It features a specially designed biosensor with logic-control IC. When Snore Stopper™detects snoring, a gentle, 4-second electrical pulse will be sent automatically to stimulate nerves on the snorer's skin. Then the brains senses this nerve stimulation, and remind or train the snorer him/herself to change the sleeping posture, thereby reducing snoring.
Snore Stopper™ features these advantages with absolutely no side effects!

||I. BEFORE USE:|
|The Snore Stopper comes with a battery already inside. Just remember to remove the white insulation strip.|
|II. APPLYING THE ELECTRODE PADS:|
|1. Wipe the black conductive rubber pads with the included alcohol-moistened cloth, to remove dust or dirt.
* Ensure rubber pads are completely dry before applying electrode pads.
2. Remove the electrode pads from its packing.
Peel off the printed sides.
|3. Line the electrode pads up with the black rubber pads of the Snore Stopper and stick on.||4. Press down on the pads in a circular motion to ensure proper adhesion. Wait a couple minutes.||5. Slowly peel back the plastic film. Don’t throw it away; you’ll be sticking it back on the pads between uses, for protection.|
|III. ADJUST :|
|1. Place the Snore Stopper on your wrist like a watch, with the top 1 inch below the wrist.||2. Attach the belt hook onto the main device. Make sure it “clicks” into place.||3. Tighten the wristband as needed. Not so tight as to restrict circulation, but just so the Snore Stopper stays in place.|
|4. This is what it should look like when worn correctly. The Snore Stopper can be worn on either arm.
|5. Turn the Snore Stopper on by turning the black dial to the right, to level 1. The LED light should flash green. A red light means that the electrode pads don’t have proper contact with your skin, and you should reposition the Snore Stopper and/or wrist belt.
* If you notice the LED light flashing red really quickly, it’s time to change the battery!
|6. Press the “Test” button three times. Snore Stopper will release a weak 5-second impulse, and you can adjust the intensity (1-7) to a comfortable level.
*Ensure background noise is less than 55dB.
|*Note: Everyone has different skin sensitivity, so you may not feel the impulse at first. Adjust to a higher intensity, press the “Test” button 3 times again, and readjust.|
|IV. AFTER USE SNORE STOPPER:||V. TO CHANGE BATTERY:|
|The Snore Stopper will power-off automatically after 8 hrs; otherwise you can turn the power off manually when you wake up. Place the plastic sheet back onto the electrode pads between uses, to prevent them from drying out or getting dirty. If taken care of, the pads should last about a month.||Unscrew the battery cover with the included screwdriver.
Place battery in and screw the cover back on.
FAQ for Snore Stopper™ users.
Please read through this FAQ section had you any questions regarding using Snore Stopper™. If your don't find an answer to your question here, please feel free to contact us .
|Q1||My Snore Stopper™ doesn't seem to be function. What could be the problems?|
It could be any of the following conditions. Please read through and check yourSnore Stopper™ again.
|Q2||Does Snore Stopper™ really reduce my snoring ?|
Snoring is caused by a narrow airway. Firstly, when we sleep, our nerves are in a relaxed state. When the air moves into the narrow airway during breathing, it causes the soft tissues of throat (tonsils, soft palate & uvula) to vibrate, snoring is the sound of such vibration. Generally, snoring can be reduced if the snorers change their sleeping positions or are given a mild nerve stimulation.
Snore Stopper™ is developed based on this concept. When the snores are detected, the device will output a 4 seconds' pulse onto the superficial skin, making a snorer do one of the following things to reduce snoring:
|Q3||What is dB ? How do I know whether Snore Stopper™ can be used in my home ?|
dB (decibel) is an index of measuring the intensity of sound. If you are in an environment that has a sound intensity that's above 70 dB continuously, the environment is seen as a noisy background. Normally we don't live in a noisy environment. The design of Snore Stopper™ aims on the source of indoor background noise, you may read the following table to see which is the optimal sleeping condition for use.
Remarks : Under normal circumstances, a home's indoor background noise will be 30~45 dB.
|Q4||Under what circumstances that Snore Stopper™ is not advised to use?|
|A4||SNORE STOPPER is not advised to use in indoor environment that has a background noise of 55 dB or above. For example, residence locating next to a road with heavy traffic, highway, nighttime factory, machinery, or very closely to an air-conditioner. The logic is that since the background noise is louder than the snores, there's no need to use Snore Stopper™. However, due to the excellent noise-screening feature of Snore Stopper™, its biosensor function will not be affected when used within a reasonable distance from a television, or when there's talking at the regular volume in the background, .|
|Q5||The power of my Snore Stopper™ is on, yet why does the device not work when I press the test button 3 times repeatedly ?|
|A5||If the background noise is above 55 dB continuously (e.g. a noisy place, restaurant, public area, etc.), the device's safety protection function will be activated. At this point, any loud voice or pressing the test button will not trigger the electrical pulse. When you are away from the noisy background, the device will return to its ready state.|
|Q6||Why do I feel the intensity is so low in the testing procedures ?|
|A5||This may be caused by two reasons, i.) the difference in gender, age, body size, and skin impedance will cause the variations in feeling. In fact, the intensity of the output pulse lies within the safe range, so generally a user should feel it. Low-intensity feeling may be caused when a user is distracted when using it. Ii) the skin's nerves are more sensitive during the night. Since the device is designed to be used at night, it's normal to feel a lower intensity when tested at daytime.|
|Q7||Why doesn't my Snore Stopper™ work under a normal operation ?|
|A7||First please make sure the power is switched on. Then check whether you have adjusted the intensity level too low, if so, please adjust to a higher level gradually. If you still can't feel it working after adjusting to the highest level, please take offSnore Stopper™ and check the self-adhesive electrodes pads. As if the electrode pads are stuck to the skin too tight, a short-circuit will occur.|
|Q8||Why doesn't Snore Stopper™ work when I 'simulate' the snores in a quiet background?|
|A8||Since Snore Stopper™'s special biosensor is designed according to the biophysical properties of snoring, it will only output if you 'simulate' in such a way : 3 consecutive snores with the same frequency and dB above 65 dB. Following this direction and try again!|
Health Information on Snoring
Do you know snoring can damage your health?
Snoring may increase stoke risk.
People like that are more likely to suffer from sleep Apnea, a sleep disturbance marked by snoring that causes a person to stop breathing for short period, which in turn cases them to sleep lightly and this makes them sleepy during the day.
If you snore severely or have trouble staying awake during the day, you should see a doctor to find out why. As those may be the signs of Sleep Apnea, which is associated with an increased risk of stroke.
The link between snoring and high blood pressure
What are the blood oxygen levels in a normal individual and a person with Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
Snoring can be bad for your partner's health
Therefore it is likely that a snorer's bed partner may be tired of the time. Moreover, long term sleep deprivation may bring on more serious medical problems, e.g. fibromylgia, s syndrome characterized by chronic pain and fatigue. In addition, the affected women in the study also suffered a level of frustration because the problem of living with a snorer is sometimes not taken seriously by others.
Snoring is a problem that may bed partners wish they never had to contend with. It affects approximately 44% of men and 30% of women. Also, as we get older, our snoring tends to get worse.
Snoring may cause impotence in male
Medical doctors in England reported that snoring may cause impotence in male. Through a study, they said that, ' Snoring will decrease the secretion of a sex hormone in male, testosterone. If the level of testosterone is decreased significantly, it will causes impotence.'
Since snorer stops breathing temporarily during sleep, and this temporary cessation of breathing will decrease the amount of air entering into mouth and nostrils. When the oxygen level in the inspired air is decreased, as a result, the secretion of testosterone is also reduced.
