night shift positional sleep apnea therapy

Novel device treats some sleep apnea patients

The FDA has just cleared a new device by Advanced Brain Monitoring, Inc., a medical device company focused on  improving healthcare for patients suffering from sleep and neurological disorders.  The device called “Night Shift” is worn on your neck and  vibrates when you turn onto your back.  There are many “low tech’ versions of this type of device; for example the old tennis ball sewn in back of boxers or t-shirt.  Please keep in mind, that this sort of device is not for everyone with sleep apnea.  Mainly only patients with apnea on their back will truly benefit from this therapy.  Ask your doctor or see a sleep specialist to find out if this could be for you.
