Here’s another great offering from one of Britain’s best-known and trusted manufacturers of anti-snoring devices: The Self-Fit Adjustable (SFA) SleepPro Contour.
Designed and developed by the ever-excellent laboratories at SleepPro-MEDiTAS the Contour is another fantastic contribution to their family of Mandibular Advancement Devices or MADs.
MADs, if you’re new to the scene, are a product that many snorers will be familiar with but as the old adage goes, some are created more equal than others, and I am more than happy to say that the SleepPro Contour is one of those MADs that fits this description.
Medically proven it works through the use of well-established technologies that anti-snore device developers have been using for decades, but it also pushes personal adjustment to a level of customization that most other products don’t even come close to.
How It Works
Combining the ever-reliable technology of boil-and-bite with a range of interchangeable straps that allow for precise increments to ensure it fits your exact needs the SleepPro Contour works by holding your tongue in place while tightening any loose muscles around the face and neck. This approach of ‘hold-and-tighten’ greatly reduces – or even prevents – the chance of these snoring mechanisms from starting up and causing noisy sleep episodes.
Supplied with seven interchangeable straps that allow for incremental advancement of the lower jaw you’ll find that your soft pallet is prevented from falling back into your throat and that those tissues that can vibrate are kept firm and thus quiet.
Designed with a large air hole at the front of the piece there is no restriction in the ability of the sleeper to breathe freely.
The fitting process of your SleepPro Contour is easy, straight forward and hassle free.
Even if it’s the first time for you to come face-to-face with the process of going through the steps of the boil-and-bite procedure you can complete the fitting within an easy ten minutes by following the instructions provided.
There are also demonstration videos available online which further explain the procedures involved. They’re an excellent way to feel more comfortable with a new and unfamiliar process if it’s your first time.
The basic steps require that you prepare two cups of boiling water, which you then pour some into a large mug or small bowl. Follow the directions to insert the handle into the SFA Contour, and then submerge it fully in the hot water for three minutes
Allowing it to cool to a safe temperature insert it into your mouth. Bite down, slowly but firmly. When you bite down make sure your jaw is in a forward position. After about 30 to 40 seconds carefully remove it, and place it into a cup or bowl of ice-cold water. This will make the impressions your teeth have made harden.
After a few minutes remove it from the water, take out the handle provided, and adjust the straps. It is recommended to begin near the middle, and then make adjustments as needed.
The process may sound involved and time-consuming but please believe me, it isn’t. It really is a straightforward procedure and even if you do get it wrong you can always try again!
Presently one unit costs $129.99 – with shipping to the US and Canada priced at $9.65. If you live in the UK you won’t be charged for delivery but shipping costs to Europe come in at $7.00 and $16.00 to the rest of the world. The product comes with a 50% 30-day money back guarantee.
If you have recently purchased another product from the SleepPro family then you could be eligible to receive a 20% discount.
Please do note that these prices are subject to change due to currency fluctuations between the UK pound and US dollar which can be quite dramatic at times.
Offers boil-and-bite comfort in combination with seven available precise settings.
Easy to fit at a level of comfort which other devices – of the same category – find difficult to compete with, never mind improve upon.
As one of a family of products sold by SleepPro-MEDiTAS the Contour can be a great gateway device into the world of snore-free sleep.
As with all MADS there is the possibility of jaw and muscle ache over the first week or so but on changing the straps to either a smaller or larger size this will not be a problem as you find your best fit.
At $129.99 this is not the most cost-effective adjustable MAD on the market today.
Only comes with a 50% money back guarantee.
Users, as with all MADs, will experience some level of drooling and dry throat syndrome (As your mouth is left open) but the impact of these issues will diminish over time.
Through a level of adjustability that easily beats most of its competitors the SFA SleepPro Contour is a real step up from some of the MADs available on the market today. Coming from the minds of one the industry’s leading companies it oozes confidence in its ability to reduce or even stop snoring.
It comes as close to a custom-level of fitting as an MAD can without actually being a custom, privately fitted piece, and dentist built devices can, if you don’t already know, run into hundreds if not thousands of dollars.
It’s difficult for me to find any real problems with this product in terms of its design, its focus on individual comfort, and SleepPro’s dedication to delivering as precise a fit as possible.
However, as good a product as it is, if there is one thing that would improve the overall attractiveness of the Contour, it’s the price. This is an expensive product, and if it were possible to price it more competitively then I believe it would be even more of a hit than it already is with me.
If you’re looking for similar solutions that are offered at a lower price then the SleepPro Contour’s main competitors are the SnoreRx and VitalSleep. These MADs also come equipped with micro-adjustment features, are constructed from high-quality materials, and have solid reputations that are backed up by positive customer experience.
Although in my opinion the SnoreRx pips the VitalSleep in terms of its quality the overall cost effectiveness of the VitalSleep is pretty much the best there is.
Please note: It is of the utmost importance to be aware of how necessary it is to talk with your registered physician about your snoring problems, you could be suffering from a much more serious condition: Sleep Apnea.
Sleep apnea can lead to life-threatening events such as strokes or high blood pressure. Remember only your registered healthcare giver is qualified to assist you in choosing which anti-snoring solution will best address your specific individual needs, so please do seek their advice.
