British scientists were able to establish that the tickling of the chin can help in the fight against snoring. They have developed a new device by which the silence and peace will once again be able to return to her bedroom.

Due to the aforementioned stimulation of the Airways dilate, and because of this is reduced or disappears snoring. This method is called continuous stimulation, which occurs through the skin. The device sends electrical discharges, the strength of which is insufficient to cause pain, and thus to Wake a sleeping person. However, it is enough to stimulate the muscles. The electrodes of this device are installed on the sides of the throat, just under the jaw.
