The Puresom Ultra Chinstrap is designed to help stop the jaw from dropping open during sleep allowing for more effective sleep therapy. The Ultra Chinstrap is lightweight and easy to put on.
The Ultra Chinstrap is comprised of a single length of material. The single strap which goes over the top of the head is 1 inch wide and closes at the top using a Velcro tab. The tab can be attached anywhere on the strap allowing for greater adjustment options. At the chin the strap widens to 2 1/2 inches, the chin cup is the same material as the straps.
When the mouth drops open during sleep a full face mask is needed to ensure the therapy pressure is not escaping through the mouth. Adding a chinstrap to the therapy to stop the jaw from dropping may allow for the use of a nasal mask or nasal pillow system.
