Research shows the humble nose holds the key to a good night’s sleep.^1
The ability to breathe freely through the nose during sleep, rather than the mouth, is essential to optimising our sleep, as well as our long term health.
If congestion, blockages, a deviated septum, or simply narrow airways are affecting your ability to breathe freely, disrupting your sleep or contributing to snoring, then Mute may be right for you.
A simple but effective first line of defence, Mute sits comfortably inside the nose increasing airflow and improving breathing.
Our clinical trial showed airflow increased by an average of 38%^2 and our user trial showed 78% of users could breathe better at night.^3

Snoring is very common and it often has more than one cause.
Underlying causes of snoring can be difficult to diagnose and may relate to deformities of the nasal septum (the cartilage between the two sides of the nose) and the other internal nasal structures.
Snoring may also be caused by blockages in the nose due to nasal allergies or colds or can result from the use of medication or alcohol. It is not uncommon for women to snore during pregnancy.

Follow these simple instructions to ensure you are using your Mute correctly
Wash your hands, hold the device by the bridge with the curved arms facing towards you and the ribbed paddles facing up and away from you.
Bring the device up to your nose and place the curved arms in first to make contact with the inside floor of your nose.
Gently guide the device backwards into your nose to a point that it is comfortable. You may need to adjust your nostrils over and around the ridged paddles to ensure it’s fully inserted.
Important: Mute nasal device is not for the treatment of sleep apnea.
If you think that your snoring may be a symptom of sleep apnea, you should consult your doctor or a sleep specialist.
I’ve snored since I was five and over the years have tried pretty much everything. I’ve even considered surgery. The sound often wakes me up and most nights my husband Colin has to retreat to the spare room.
I’ve tried Rhinomed’s product Mute a few times now and haven’t woken myself up once. My husband says my snoring is much reduced and much quieter, so I’m going to keep using it.

Since we started using Mute we definitely sleep a lot better.
Before you even got to sleep, once you’ve got it in, you can just feel that everything is open... your breathing is loads better.
With Mute you feel relaxed, you feel fresh… you’re getting six to seven hours solid sleep, without a doubt.
By being able to sleep in bed together, without annoying each other, means we can just go to bed and get a good night’s sleep.

Hannah says: I think my snoring has driven us apart a little. Obviously not sleeping together you don't have that intimacy. He wakes up grumpy. I wake up grumpy.
Jonny says: When Hannah used Mute it really helped. There’s no snoring whatsoever now.
Hannah says: I wake up feeling refreshed and my breathing is so much better now. We can go out and do things together now because we're not tired now. We’re going out for cocktails later...
