    Zzoma Positional Sleep Device Review

    Zzoma is designed for use as an alternative to CPAP therapy for those who have positional mild to moderate sleep apnea. Board-certified physicians designed this positional medical device which sits on a person’s back with straps that wrap around the torso and connect to the front of the body. The foam wedge design, made of lightweight semi-rigid synthetic foam, restricts the user from turning onto their back, which can cause the airway to collapse. As a result, Zzoma promotes side-sleeping while also reducing snoring and disrupted breathing. ZZoma is comfortably worn as high up as possible on a user’s upper torso to improve a patient’s sleep apnea symptoms and provide improved and uninterrupted sleep.
