Pillow to help stop snoring by vibrating
Francebed is going to start selling pillows that vibrate when the sleeper snores to help stop snoring from September 2007. The pillows have built-in devices to sense snoring and make the pillows shake using electricity from batteries. The shaking becomes stronger if the snoring does not stop. There are three stages of the shaking strength. When people fall asleep muscles relax, causing the narrowing of the respiratory tract, and this is said to be the cause of snoring. The vibration of the pillows would help stop snoring by stimulating and tensing the muscles. The suggested price of the pillow is 29,800 yen plus tax.
