Carefushion chin strap
This chin strap is working for me so far. So glad that this, along with the wisp, is working out. Lot of improvement over a short period of time. Excuse the dog hair. We have 3 and no matter how often they are brushed, their hair flies everywhere. It is what it is. The only thing that would make it better for me is if the back strap wasn't as wide as it is. Oh-jeez

It is a carefushion and I am guessing a size large. The sleep lab gave it to me to try and so far, so good. It has Velcro on the back strap and the top strap. What kind of nasal mask are you using?

RE: chin strap
Dear Me50,

Don't know if 50 is your age or not. But I love having a wider chin strap because it does double duty. It keeps my mouth shut and gives me a nightly chin-lift. I think my chins are better everyday!

Kate

I really didn't intend this to be a review of the product but so many people were asking about chin straps and I thought this was the best place to put it so they could see a picture of it I haven't had it long enough for me to do a thorough review if there is a better place to post this could you please move it there thank you

my user name is just a user name that does not coincide with my age. The width where I put my chin is fine; as a matter of fact, all of it is fine but, if I had a choice, I would like to see what it would be like with the back strap not so wide. Just an observation. I think Paula may move this to the proper place as I wasn't trying to review the chin strap as I haven't used it long enough for that (less than a week).

RE: chin strap
Then, if you could, update your first post to state what the name of the chin strap is at least.

Hi me50,
Sorry I neglected to answer your question about the nasal mask I'm using. It's the Respironics Wisp Nasal Mask and I like it very much.
