New app brings hope to snorers

New diagnostic tools are changing the field of snoring and sleep apnea

Snorefox is a medical app in the field of snoring diagnostics, which is based on eight years of interdisciplinary research and has a basic technology that is now patent pending. The core feature: Snorefox can not only report how loud and how long someone snores, but also identify breathing pauses during sleep and thus indicate whether dangerous sleep apnea is present. Thus, Snorefox answers the question: "Is my snoring dangerous?"  

How has it been so far? What makes Snorefox different?

Red stands for dangerous breathing pauses and green for "no risk". In the case of yellow, there may be a need for action - the user should measure several nights. And then? Whatever the result, there is information in the Snorefox on how to overcome snoring and sleep apnea. A doctor search is also available from the app, highlighting doctors who use the latest diagnostic options. Because it doesn't matter whether snoring is just annoying or whether it's dangerous: there are many different approaches to treating snoring and sleep apnea.
