Snooor is an anti-snoring wearable device. You place it on your forehead before going to sleep and the wearable gently vibrates each time you’re positioned on your back, and not on your side instead. This way, you slowly and delicately train your body to sleep in a snore-free position. For centuries, positional therapy has been considered the most effective anti-snoring strategy, and now it can be enhanced with help from a wearable tech such as Snooor.
