Relief from snoring and sleep apnoea

Snoring

Airmax can help snorers (and their partners) to sleep more easily. Twenty percent of us are chronic snorers, and nearly half of all adults snore occasionally. As we get older, we become more likely to start snoring.

Snoring is caused by a restriction in the airway which results in not getting enough oxygen. To compensate for the lack of oxygen we start breathing through our mouths, causing vibrations of the soft palate and other tissue in the mouth, nose and throat. Airmax works by widening the narrowest part of the nasal entrance to allow greater airflow. This enables the air to go deeper into the lungs and provide more oxygen.

Using Airmax will help you switch from mouth breathing to nasal breathing which consequently helps to reduce snoring.

Airmax is a simple, non-invasive treatment that is clinically proven to work.

Sleep apnoea

Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a condition that causes interrupted breathing during sleep. The muscles and soft tissues in the throat relax and collapse sufficiently to cause a total blockage of the airway; it is called an apnoea when the airflow is blocked for 10 seconds or more. Most people with OSA snore loudly. Their breathing may be noisy and laboured and is often interrupted by gasping and snorting with each episode of apnoea.

During an episode, lack of oxygen causes the person to come out of deep sleep and into a lighter state of sleep, or a brief period of wakefulness, in order to restore normal breathing. However, after falling back into deep sleep, further episodes of apnoea can occur.

These repeated interruptions to sleep caused by OSA can make the person feel very tired during the day. A person with OSA will usually have no memory of breathlessness, so they are often unaware that they are not getting a proper night's sleep.

Airmax can help by widening the narrowest part of the nasal entrance to allow greater airflow. This enables the air to go deeper into the lungs and provide more oxygen. Airmax can be used in combination with an oxygen mask (e.g. CPAP) and has been proven to increase compliance for CPAP users.

Sports performance

When you exercise hard, you breathe hard. It's why we've created the Airmax Sport. During exercise the nose acts as an 'air-conditioning' system. Both the temperature and the humidity are optimised. The nose also acts as a filter that filters dirt and pollutants. It is therefore usually recommended to breathe through the nose. However, some people have difficulties doing so.

Airmax works by widening the narrowest part of the nasal entrance to allow greater airflow. This enables the air to go deeper into the lungs and provide more oxygen, so you can run, ride and work out harder.

We ensure it stays in place with two small arms on the inside that keep it firmly in place during your workout.

How it works

Placing Airmax inside your nose will widen the narrowest part of the nasal entrance. This widening means more air can go deeper into your lungs and give you more oxygen.

Don’t worry – we've designed it to be a comfortable fit!

Diagram showing how Airmax works

When using Airmax for the first time, we recommend using a mirror to help you make sure it's placed symmetrically. When you can feel its legs widening your nasal entrance and the 'connecting bridge' is touching your nasal septum, you know it's in the right place.

Always rinse Airmax with water both before and after use.

FAQs

Airmax has been properly positioned when the legs widen the nasal entrance and when the 'connecting bridge' is touching your nasal septum. Using a mirror can help you to position it correctly. It may take a couple of weeks to get used to.
To date, no allergic reactions are known.
Airmax is made of a soft, odourless and medically certified plastic (S.E.B.S.) which makes using Airmax extremely comfortable.
S.E.B.S. is the abbreviation for: Styrene Ethylene Butylene Styrene. S.E.B.S. is used in toothbrushes, medical devices and products used by dentists. It has an excellent resistance to water, acids and bases.
If Airmax falls out during your sleep, it is probably because you removed it without realising it. Sometimes it takes a couple of weeks to get used to using Airmax, but usually no more than two weeks.
Both types of Airmax work in exactly the same way. Insert Airmax Sport using the same technique as for Airmax Classic, but ensure the small hooks stay behind the nose pillar of the nasal septum. This way Airmax doesn't drop out when you are working out.
Airmax can be cleaned with soap and water. Airmax can only be used by one person, to prevent transfer of diseases such as the common cold. When not in use, store in the case provided. Airmax can be used for up to three months.
After three months of daily use, the material (S.E.B.S) loses its softness and becomes less comfortable to wear and less effective. That's why we recommend replacing it.
It's not suitable for children under 12. Keep it out of the reach and sight of small children.
Yes, but only the 'bridge' of Airmax should be visible under the nasal septum.
We currently only sell the Medium size in the UK and this fits 80% of people. The size of Airmax is not related to the actual size of your nose! It depends on the inside of your nose and the widening needed that will provide the best relief.
Some people with a dry nose or a deviated septum might experience irritation in their nose after a few weeks of use. This can be avoided by putting water on the legs of Airmax before putting it in the nose.
When wearing Airmax, the narrowest part of the nasal entrance is slightly widened. However it's only temporary. This mechanical widening disappears when removing Airmax. Airmax will not affect the shape of your nose after you have used it!
Yes. Although many people think that a nose gets congested from too much thick mucus in most cases nasal congestion is caused when the tissues lining the nose become swollen. The swelling is due to inflamed blood vessels. Using Airmax widens the nasal passages to help you breathe more easily.
Yes. Airmax can help relieve the ‘stuffy nose’ many women experience while pregnant.
