Does anyone know if the Nighshift device is good for positional therapy?

Does anyone know if the Nighshift device is good for positional therapy?
My apneas are quite a bit worse on my back so trying positional therapy.
Does anyone know if this device is good or not?
Night Shift Sleep Positioner (advancedbrainmonitoring.com)

It's the one I'm looking at buying but it's a bit pricey. Worth the money?
Thanks.
Thanks

Never seen or heard of it before so I had a good look through the website at the device and personally, it seems a very gimmicky device that does not appeal to me. It is also very expensive. I believe that CPAP is the beast treatment available but I do understand people look for alternatives.

If you proceed with you purchase I hope that it goes well for you.

I don't understand how you would be refused referral to a sleep clinic, assuming you had symptoms that indicate you may have Sleep Apnea but it may be different in the UK compared to Australia. Can you do a sleep study through a private company? We can out here. It does cost around $120 but given your health is of great importance it would be well worth doing and it is also only a 3rd the price of the device that you are considering. Just a thought.

The company that makes it is completely legit - they make equipment used by sleep centers to do sleep studies, neurologists, etc. As for the device, a t-shirt with a tennis ball taped to it is a much cheaper way to try out positional therapy. Smile

(Actually found this post when googling their home eeg devices, they sell those, too, but waaaaaaay too expensive to just get to play with.)

Also, you can buy an app for $3 that lets you strap your phone to your chest and track this, and OSCAR is already set up to support it - http://www.proximalbox.com/somnopose/index.html

Philips has something similar, the Nightbalance device. I don't recommend that one because it just... didn't want to charge out of the box on the stupid pogo-pin dock. Made it 2 days before it died, never got to experience the therapy.

The SmartSleep Snoring Relief Band is a stripped-down version of the Nightbalance that's cheaper and doesn't require a script. Maybe worth a try if you come across one?
