The first 'anti-snoring' hotel rooms are on the way!

According to news from Crowne Plaza hotel chain their “Snore Absorption Rooms" were being tested in London England and should be rolled out shortly.

The technology includes:

•Sound proofing on walls to absorb the loud frequencies, deflect the sound waves and minimise the impact of snoring. The walls use egg box style foam which reduces the noise reverberating in the room

•A specially designed sound absorbing head board that will work together with the sound proof walling to muffle the echo within the room

•An anti-snoring bed wedge which acts as a body pillow, encouraging snoring guests to sleep on their sides or upright. Lying flat on your back makes the base of the tongue and soft palate collapse to the back wall of the throat which causes snoring

•An anti-snoring pillow which uses rare neodymium magnets to create a natural magnetic field, opening the airways and stiffening the upper palate which vibrates during snoring

•A white noise machine which is proven to help drown out the droning snoring noise and help sleep and relaxation

Sweet dreams!
