There are several studies and research articles that explore the effectiveness of positional therapy devices in preventing or reducing snoring. Positional therapy involves encouraging individuals to sleep in specific positions, such as on their sides, to improve airflow and reduce snoring caused by sleeping on the back. Here are some key findings from studies on positional therapy devices:

  1. A study published in the journal Chest in 2006 found that positional therapy significantly reduced snoring and apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) in patients with positional obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The researchers concluded that positional therapy is a viable treatment option for patients with positional OSA.
  2. Another study published in the European Respiratory Journal in 2015 evaluated the effectiveness of a positional therapy device in patients with mild to moderate OSA. The study reported a significant reduction in snoring and AHI when patients used the positional therapy device.
  3. In a study published in Sleep Medicine Reviews in 2018, researchers reviewed multiple trials on positional therapy and concluded that it can be an effective treatment for positional OSA and primary snoring. However, they also noted that compliance with positional therapy may be challenging for some individuals.
  4. A randomized controlled trial published in the journal Sleep in 2019 compared the efficacy of a positional therapy device to a placebo device for reducing positional OSA. The study found that the positional therapy device significantly reduced AHI and snoring compared to the placebo.

Overall, these studies suggest that positional therapy devices can be effective in reducing snoring and improving sleep quality, especially for individuals with positional OSA.
