Stop Snoring, Sleep Better
We all claim we don’t do it, but snoring happens and mostly to other people, but aside from being an annoyance for anyone sharing a bed with you, snoring can disturb your own sleep. In some cases, heavy snoring can even be a sign of cardiovascular disease. In addition, snoring can impact and hurt the quality of the sleep that you get each night, leaving you tired, grumpy and less able to work each day. Smart gadgets such as Nora, however, promise to make snoring a thing of the past. By tracking the sleeper’s movements and nudging them slightly when snoring, these gadgets cut down on snoring without waking anyone up. Users simply place the device under their pillow and a small pump activates once snoring is detected. The pump then raises the pillow to reflect the breathing pattern of the sleeper and gently decrease their nocturnal growling.
