KIWI DEVICE IS SNORING SUCCESS
A Dunedin orthodontist has invented a $150 remedy for snoring that he hopes will save lives and marriages and make life better for millions of people. Dr. Chris Robertson has spent the past eight years developing and trialing the aveoTSD, a device put in the mouth to hold the tongue forward to stop snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea, where breathing stops during sleep. Manufactured in Christchurch, users say the device is like using a dummy that makes them sleep like a baby. The beauty of Robertson's invention is it costs a fraction of expensive sleep masks and can be prescribed by a doctor without the need to visit a specialist or dentist for fitting.
