Headgear with integrated chin strap

Headgear with integrated chin strap
Hi,

Is there a product where the head gear for the CPAP mask has also an integtrated chin strap to prevent the mouth from opening? Using 1 headgear for the mask and another one for the chin would probably make it uncomfortable. 

Thanks...

RE: Headgear with integrated chin strap
Not that I'm aware of. I'm struggling to see how you'd do that well.
Traditional chin straps are not a great solution for sleep apnea. They tend to force the jaw back causing airflow restrictions, the exact thing that CPAP is trying to prevent.
Most people (not all) find that soft cervical collars do a far better job. Integrating those two would just make it harder to put on and take off.
