Another treatment for sleep apnea is sleep position therapy. This method is suitable for people who suffer from sleep apnea when sleeping on their back. The sleeping position is recorded during the sleep monitoring. This is so called position-dependent sleep apnea.
In sleep position therapy, you wear a small device, the Sleep Position Trainer, that detects your sleeping position. When positioned on your back, the device reacts with a small vibration. Without waking up, you turn to another sleeping position. This way, you train to stop sleeping on your back and thus prevent sleep apnea.
In the Ruysdael Clinics both the Night Balance, a device worn around the chest, and the Night Shift, a device worn around the neck, are prescribed.
