Knightsbridge Sleep Solutions

We're excited to share this latest chinstrap which should give success to many patients where other chinstraps may have failed, due to its vertical lift to prevent the jaw from receding further back.


We're pleased to add the Knightsbridge Dual Band Chinstrap to our charity's shop and are optimistic for good feedback as time goes by due to its unique vertical lift of keeping the jaw supported and aligned.  The only drawback is this will not suit people with a latex allergy!

Vertical Lift Dual Band Chinstrap

Hope2Sleep's Observations:-

  • This Dual Band Chinstrap holds and supports the jaw in the correct position to ensure the jaw does not recede further back (like other chinstraps can cause, and especially with people who already have a receding chin).

  • Due to the jaw being correctly aligned, it should help prevent a gap forming at the lips and air escaping which can affect the actual CPAP or non-invasive ventilation therapy and also cause disturbed sleep.
     

  • The vertical lift will help prevent mouth breathing with the consequent dry mouth this causes, and nasal breathing will be encouraged (although anyone aiming to nasal breathe must also make sure this is comfortably possible and address any nasal congestion).
     

  • Another benefit for having the jaw aligned correctly is that it is less likely to cause jaw discomfort which can even lead to pain to the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ).
     

  • An added bonus we discovered when testing, is that due to this chinstrap needing a cap for stability and the mask headgear going over the top of the cap, it should also help people who get discomfort from the mask headgear straps - most of which will be no longer in direct contact with the head or skin.  In fact, we tweaked it and placed the cap further back so that the back neck strap of the headgear also went over the cap material.  Therefore, the CPAP headgear can go either underneath or over the top of the chinstrap.
     

  • The Dual Band Chinstrap is also suitable for snorers who are not diagnosed with sleep disordered breathing, to be used without a mask.
     
  • There are 3 sizes (and 2 colours) to allow for the perfect fit.

Hope2Sleep Charity's Testing Results

The following chart shows some testing carried out with a CPAP user wearing his full face mask who is on good therapy with an AHI of below 5, but leakage was not in good control.  As you can see on the left of the chart, the leakage was fairly high. 

The CPAP user then used this Dual Band Chinstrap (previous chinstraps tended to cause more leakage with this patient due to his jaw receding further with other chinstraps on).  He changed to a nasal mask but with little 'hope' tried the Dual Band Chinstrap.  Much to his delight with the nasal mask and Dual Band Chinstrap his AHI lowered to less than 1 breathing event per hour and no leaks were recorded (see right of the chart). 

Not only does he feel better during the day due to nasal breathing, he has now ordered a nasal mask from his clinic due to the positive change in his therapy.


Knightsbridge Sleep Solutions say:-

REVOLUTIONARY SUPERIOR DESIGN - Effective and Comfortable

By holding jaw closed tongue pulled upwards + forwards for clearer airway

  • DUAL BANDS:  Non-elastic blue band prevents jaw from lowering. Elastic white band provides gentle upwards force. Compound elastic and non-elastic force allows pressure to be minimized whilst still effective.
     

  • VERTICAL LIFT:  Bands lift from under jaw and attach at the temples to produce vertical force.  (Unlike standard neoprene chinstraps which wrap around the tip of the chin and push the jaw directly into the jaw joint.)  Vertical lift works with the natural rotation of the jaw.
     

  • COMFORTABLE:  Washable.  Light, breathable net-mesh cap.

Mesh Cap Material

Cap Front and Back

 

  • The Knightsbridge Dual Band uses 6 materials plus Velcro and is an assembly of 22 different pieces.
     

  • All six materials and the full cap design are necessary to provide the vertical lift and compound elastic and non-elastic pressure functionalities, and also be comfortable.
     

  • The elastic and non-elastic straps produce a compound force curve that allows the pressure to be minimised.
     

  • For the cap to be durable yet also light and breathable, it has the three-layer net-mesh construction.
     

  • Since a full cap is required to balance the vertical forces at the front, and because it needs to fit heads of various sizes and shapes, the cap is constructed of three panels and has a rear size-adjustment strap.
     

  • Due to the cap and a portion of the Velcro (which is a somewhat stiff material) covers the ears, there is an interior soft grey felt lining to make that comfortable, and to provide comfort for wear over months or years, the entire perimeter of the cap is also lined.

Very pleased as I can now use a nasal mask
Saturday, 24 April 2021  | 

It's not often I'm first to write a review, but needed to as this Dual Band Chinstrap is the best I've tried and so successful that I now have no leaks and have been able to change to the DreamWear Nasal mask instead of the DreamWear full face. Very impressed and surprised too the cap doesn't cause me to feel hot. 5 stars from me!

ORDERS

We try our best to ship all orders received by us Monday-Friday on the same working day if received before 12 noon, and more often than not orders processed before 3 pm will be despatched the same day whenever possible.  Weekend or UK bank holiday orders are sent out the next working day.  An automated email is sent when products have been despatched so please check your spam box and add us to your safe senders list.  Also, if you do not receive an email confirmation, please check that you have typed the correct email address in your account.

All orders are sent via 1st class mail within the UK.  Masks and some other more expensive products are always sent via 'signed for' insured delivery and cannot be left in 'safe' places, but there is the option for an alternative shipping address when processing the orders.   International orders are sent via tracked Airmail, and whilst we're happy to ship internationally, we cannot be held responsible for any charges that may be added in your own country.

Delivery charges are worked out automatically by weight and you can clearly see the delivery charges before purchase.  On the rare occasion delivery charges are miscalculated by the website, a refund will be sent, as it is not our policy to make money on postage charges and neither do we add the cost of delivery into the price and offer so-called  'free delivery' like some sites and Ebay pressurise sellers to do!

Wherever possible with larger parcels, we try to re-use boxes to keep shipping costs down and protect the environment.

If a product is out of stock and the order contains multiple items, the 'in stock' items will be sent immediately and further items will follow upon arrival with no further postage charges incurred.  


RETURNS

Masks, CPAP machines and and most other products are exempt from a refund or exchange unless faulty due to health and hygiene issues (as stated in our 'Terms and Conditions'), and in particular due to the risk of cross contamination as they cannot be re-sold. The Consumer Contracts Regulations 28.(3)(a) confirms exemption as follows:-  "exemption in the case of a contract for the supply of sealed goods which are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygiene reasons, if they become unsealed after delivery."

Unopened (sealed) products in their original packing can be returned within 14 days for a refund of the product cost, but the purchaser is to pay the return postage, and we would advise retaining proof of postage.  This excludes any faulty goods, for which postage will be reimbursed.  A full refund for the price of the product will be issued when received by us, less the original postage charges when the order was sent to you.

 

VAT DECLARATION/INFORMATION

Most of the products we sell are eligible for Zero Rated VAT in the UK and Europe, and in order to qualify, you should meet the criteria for the following HMRC VAT Declaration:-

  1. You or the person you are purchasing on behalf of have "a condition which the medical profession treats as a chronic sickness," (sleep apnoea and sleep disordered breathing, which require therapy, are such conditions).
     
  2. "The goods or services are for the personal or domestic use of the customer."

We cannot advise on individual cases, but more information can be found on HMRC’s website under notice 701/7 on the following link  https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/vat-notice-7017-vat-reliefs-for-disabled-people

If you are purchasing on behalf of someone else who meets the above criteria, you must provide their name and address, and you will be prompted of this during the checkout process.

Customers living outside of Europe do not pay UK VAT charges, so please leave the the 'zero rate eligibility' box ticked.  However, we cannot be held responsible for any additional costs incurred when the products reach your own country.

If you are purchasing with the intention of re-selling any products, you are liable to pay VAT on all products so you must untick the 'zero rate eligibility' box which will add VAT to your order.

Any products that our not eligible for zero rate VAT, will not display the VAT Declaration, and VAT will be added at checkout.
