Chronically restricted nasal breathing is a ubiquitous problem. In fact, it is the most commonly reported complaint to ENTs (Ear, Nose, and Throat specialists) and affects over 15% of the population. Nasal obstruction detracts from quality of life, as it presents a constant bother and source of embarrassment, forces reliance on mouth breathing, leads to difficulty sleeping and habitual snoring, and limits endurance during physical activity. Conversely, nasal breathing has been shown to correlate with improved mood, memory, and productivity.
Our founding team is the perfect fit to tackle this widespread problem – a surgeon who has diagnosed and treated the condition for years and a biomedical engineer who has experienced it personally his entire life. This combination has produced a new state of the art in nasal breathing aids – a device optimized for daily wear. Much like a contact lens, users experience an instant improvement upon insertion and comfortably wear the device in public without detection.
