I agree with this. The mouth leaks were arousing me all during the night and I discovered them on the ResScan data when I got my new data capable device. I tried a serious chin strap to correct the problem and felt the difference right away. Once I corrected the problem I have experimented with just how much chin strap is necessary to control it.
The chin strap helps but doesn't solve my problem - guess I just have a defective head.
I now have an Apex 220 FFM I will fit today and read a while and try tonight. For me it is absolutely necessary to fit during the day as doing at bed time usually leaves me frustrated and bad night.
Maybe three is the charm
