IMPORTANT - A limited supply of the samples have just arrived  which will be sent on a first-come-first-served basis.  If you are not fortunate this time around, we are promised more will arrive in a few months.  The reason for the short supply is due to popularity of these outweighing demand.

REVIEWS - We have allowed reviews to show, even though these are just limited trials, so whilst it's clear to see when people have had instant success, bear in mind that with the negative ones the people only had a trial of a maximum of 2 nights, which is not always long enough to get used to a new product.  Hopefully, the reviews will still be helpful though, and we are currently collecting survey responses which will be available to review at the end of the trials.

This is a sample of the SleepSeal Inhalation Valve, which are designed to help prevent mouth leaks when using CPAP or Non-invasive Ventilation. One sample in each size will be sent, and there is no template to know which size is correct, as the manufacturer has told us the size needed will be based on comfort.  Do take note of which size you prefer, so that when these are finally able to be purchased you will know which size to choose.

It is an opportunity for people outside of the USA to try this new product in exchange for feedback, which will enable us to decide whether to stock them when they become available . (USA people can purchase direct from the manufacturer https://www.sleepseal.net/)

No charge will be made for the product - just a small cost for postage.


IMPORTANT UPDATE:-  As of 7th June 2018 we have just received a limited supply of these samples.  Once this batch has gone it will be several months before more arrive.  This is due to popularity exceeding demand.  Please know that we are keeping in touch with the manufacturer regarding progress of the CE Marking etc., to allow them to be sold in the UK and Europe.  Please kindly do not message us about this as we will keep everyone informed via our newsletter list which you can join on this link NEWSLETTER LIST

 

We have  samples available  of the SleepSeal Open Valve strips on their way over from the USA manufacturer.  They are not available to purchase yet outside the USA, and you are welcome to try a sample for free.  We just ask that you pay for the postage and give us feedback.  You will be sent a link to easily leave the anonymous feedback when the sample is sent to you.

(People in the USA are fortunate that they can purchase these direct from the manufacturer  so we will not be shipping samples to the USA.  Here is the link for our USA friends to purchase them  https://www.sleepseal.net/)

SleepSeal say:-

The SleepSeal Inhalation and Open Valve devices have been found to be highly effective in keeping the lips closed in many individuals who experience mouth leaks while using CPAP or other forms of positive pressure therapy.

In addressing mouth leaks, it can provide a more successful alternative to chin straps or full face masks and commonly completely eliminates mouth leaks.

This valve allows the user to breathe in comfortably as needed, while maintaining the natural lip seal during sleep to prevent mouth leaks and air escape out of the mouth during the night. It contains a one-way valve that directs air into the mouth if the user needs to breathe in, while prohibiting passive exhalation or air leakage. The user is able to forcefully exhale as needed. This valve can be used with CPAP or other PAP therapy to reduce or prevent mouth leaks.

INSTRUCTIONS:-

  1. Before wearing the device, make sure you do not have any residual makeup, oils, vaseline or anything else around your lips that could prevent the adhesive backing from sealing.  Your mouth and lips need to be very dry.
  2. Remove the plastic backing from the device to expose the tape.  Be careful not to tear the flaps.
  3. Close your mouth and lips normally.
  4. Position the device's valve centred directly over closed, unpursed lips and firmly press the valve into the lips.
  5. Firmly press and rub the tape starting from the valve and lip area in an outward direction until all of the tape is sealed well onto the lips and skin surrounding the mouth.
  6. Breathe normally through the nose.

THE SLEEPSEAL DEVICES ARE NOT A TREATMENT FOR SLEEP APNEA; THEY ARE ONLY DEVICES DESIGNED TO MAINTAIN THE NATURAL LIP SEAL THAT NORMALLY OCCURS DURING SLEEP, IN INDIVIDUALS WHOSE MOUTHS FALL OPEN DURING SLEEP.

When will they be available in store?

Excellant for mouth breathers such as myself. They are un-intrusive and keep the mouth closed hence minimise leaks. I managed to make my sample last 2 nights. When will they be on the market to buy?

Good to hear they're helping Ronald. Dr Black and his team are working hard to get them ready for sale in the UK, hopefully before the end of the year, and we'll be telling everyone in the newsletters as soon as we have news. Meanwhile, feel free to order another sample. Kath

This works really well for me!!!!!
Friday, 14 September 2018  | 

I LOVE this little sticky pads that help to keep my mouth closed when I sleep. Yes, it's a lot like peeling a plaster off in the morning - mildly painful - but well worth it because they work to keep my mouth sealed shut at night & put a stop to my mouth breathing. They work better for me than the chin strap so I'm DELIGHTED with them & will order more, if you have them!!!! Thank you!!!!

Response:

Agree that keeping your mouth closed is challenging with nasal congestion. Some people find saline sprays or Breathe Right strips help with this.

Not for me

They did prevent mouth leaks but I, personally, felt like I was suffocating because I couldn't open my mouth. You can't yawn or sneeze properly because your mouth is taped shut. Just not for me.

Very good product!
Thursday, 23 August 2018  | 

Having had to tape my mouth lately
due to mouth leaks this product is the best I have tried .Very easy to fit and it stays put all night.
Especially good for travellers and people who find scissors and micro tape too fiddly to use .

I found this brilliant,so good to wake up without a dried out mouth for once!..unfortunately l only got 3 nights from each one before the glue started to remain on my face and very hard to remove...However l would be very keen to buy them when they are available,if priced reasonably...perhaps they are only meant for a one off use?

Yes they are only really for one night's use Sue, and Dr Black is trying to get them made as cheaply as he can for when they go on sale. Good to hear how it helped you though 🙂

mixed feelings
Monday, 9 July 2018  | 

I loved this for the fact that I didn't wake up through the night and in the morning with a dry mouth. It definitely works and keeps the mouth shut. However, also having reflux, I sometimes get a bit of a cough once the air starts blowing in, and this is not something to be wearing when you get a cough. I had to get it off fast when the cough started as I was choking as not able to cough out my mouth. Having said that, I think I would try them again as it was really brilliant not having such a dry mouth. I know you can get these as either an inhalation and an exhalation valve. Next time, if available, I might try the exhalation valve.

Response:

Sorry for the delay in posting your review Anne, but I particularly held back on it as I had a meeting in London with Dr Black who designed these SleepSeal's so wanted to discuss your comments. He said that it's difficult for you with just 1 night's trial but encouraged you to try again with the same ones and due to your reflux try to cough against the exhalation valve as you should be able to. However, after trying again and when we finally get the products for sale, he suggested if you're still struggling to try the Open Valve rather than the Exhalation one. Hope this helps.

Not sure .....
Wednesday, 4 July 2018  | 

I used the medium size and it fitted well although it did feel a bit alien not being able to breathe in through my mouth but it did seal very well .... Had a comfortable nights sleep (although the heat woke me ) and on removal OUCH it hurt and left a red mark around my mouth however this disappeared within 20 minutes - the bonus was not having a dry mouth
I don't know if I would purchase - it will really come down to cost - they are a one night only use as the sticky stuff didn't work the Next night ......

Simply can’t wait...
Tuesday, 3 July 2018  | 

I found this item wonderful and will definitely be buying when they’re available in the UK. It was simple to use - peel off the paper and stick on. I like it because it was so soft and made my mask fit more comfortably. My mouth did not taste disgusting in the morning and once I peeled the valve from my lips, I had a better start to the day.

ORDERS

We try our best to ship all orders received by us Monday-Friday on the same working day if received before 12 pm, 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.

There is the option for UK 1st or 2nd Class Mail in the UK.  Masks and some other more expensive products are always sent via 'signed for' 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 are not 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. 


RETURNS

Masks and most products cannot be exchanged, unless faulty, due to health and hygiene issues, in accordance with the Consumer Contracts Regulations, (as stated in our 'Terms and Conditions' ) and where you will find our return address, so if you are unsure about any product please contact us BEFORE purchase or BEFORE opening a sealed packet.

Unopened (sealed) products in their original packing can be returned within 14 days for a refund of the product cost, but purchaser to pay return 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.
