Who is NED?

Answer:  NED is the name of a patent pending anti-snoring device.  It stands for “Nasal EPAP Dilator” which is the technology it uses to produce its unprecedented results!

This isn’t NED. This is Brad. He is the Chief Product Officer. He sleeps with NED. His wife is very grateful.

Dr. Kevin Stock

Dr. Kevin Stock also isn’t NED. Dr. Stock invented NED while treating sleep patients in his private practice. While treating obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and snoring it became overwhelming clear that a comfortable, convenient, cost-effective solution was desperately needed. After years of research, development, testing, and tinkering NED was born – the most effective, comfortable, convenient snoring solution ever.

NED Use Instructions

NED is simple to use.

Here are some tips on how to use NED (and what to expect!) to get the best sleep possible. Please read this to ensure optimal results.

FAQ

Is NED comfortable?

Answer:  NED was designed on the cornerstone of comfort and effectiveness.  It’s soft silicone reinforced with foam is gentle on the nose.

NED can take several nights to get use to using, however.

Part of its revolutionary technology is called EPAP (Expiratory Positive Air Pressure). What this means is that when you exhale out of your nose, you will feel resistance. This is good! This means it is working! But this back pressure tends to take a couple nights to get use to. After a few nights, the slight resistance against exhalation becomes very comfortable and natural, like a deep slow breath. 

Past attempts to improve snoring have included things like mouth guards, tongue depressors, chin straps, and even C-PAP machines. These past options, as you may be aware, can be expensive, cause discomfort, or are simply ineffective. After a few nights of sleeping with NED you’ll wonder how you slept without him.

What results can I expect?

Answer: Our customers have experienced INCREDIBLE results.  We encourage customers to use Snore Recording Apps to see just how effective NED is.  Here’s an example using the SnoreLab app for iPhone:

Does NED require additional materials? (like C-PAP: humidification, hoses, masks, etc…)

Answer: No, the NED device consists of a pair of nasal dilators that are re-usable. We recommend a three month reusable cycle (before disposing).  A strap is included that can be attached to the device and used as an additional accessory to optimize results.

What about the strap?

Answer: The NED Device comes with a strap for optional use. Most people do not use or need the strap. However, some people find they like the strap because it helps hold the device in place. This tends to be true for more “active” sleepers – who tend to roll around.

How much does NED cost?

Answer:  NED is $30. This new low price is due to new production technologies that enable us to produce the device at the lowest cost possible while providing an effective and comfortable solution to snoring. Each NED Device lasts 3 to 6 months. Just pennies a day for the best sleep of your (and your bedtime partner… 🙂 life.

What is NED made out of?

Answer: NED is made from FDA cleared silicone.

Is the NED device FDA approved?

Answer: The NED device is a nasal dilator. As such, it is an FDA class I exempt medical device to be used to help decrease or altogether stop snoring.

How does NED deal with mouth breathers?

Answer:  Inherent in NED’s design is “dilation” which increases the cross-sectional area of the nasal cavity while preventing collapse of this area.  The collapse of the intra-nasal passage is frequently what precipitates mouth breathing.  NED is designed to defend its users against this!

We believe NED’s ability to improve nasal breathing will significantly reduce or eliminate mouth breathing.

“How Does NED Work?”

Answer: NED stands for: Nasal EPAP Dilator.

It is a nasal dilator which improves one’s ability to inhale. It is combined with EPAP technology to prevent the narrowing of the airway that leads to snoring.  EPAP stands for: Expiratory Positive Air Pressure, which means when you breathe out, the flap design of NED creates intra-nasal turbulence and positive pressure that dilates the airway, preventing collapse.

The Technology.

The invention of dilation plus EPAP technology is the breakthrough at the heart of the NED device. The result is a small, comfortable anti-snoring device which allows snorers and sleep partners to again sleep in the same room while also providing both with a well-deserved restful night’s sleep. It is hard to put a price tag on a restful night’s sleep, but if you could it would cost much more than the NED device’s price of 30 USD.

Nasal = the device fits comfortably in your nose

EPAP = Expiratory Positive Air Pressure = using your own breath to help keep the airway open

Dilator = increasing the cross-sectional area of nasal passage, improving inhalation, preventing nasal restriction and collapsing
