Our science story
Can we please keep the Patney?
Snoring affects your health and as such, any claims to effectiveness needed to be validated by authentic, credible sleep research. Early on we committed to having the Patney independently verified.
Once we arrived at a product design that we believed was extremely effective, it underwent an independent validation study by the WellSleep Centre - Otago University. This study, by Senior Lecturer, Dr Angela Campbell, Department of Medicine and Manager WellSleep, assessed the effectiveness of Patney in reducing snoring in a population of snorers and/or mild obstructive sleep apnoea subjects. The subjects were male and female, aged between 42-61 and covered a cross-section of ethnicities and body compositions.
The results were extremely encouraging. The study found that the Patney improved sleep quality, that partners reported less restlessness, less snoring and improved sleep. Incredibly 89% of people who completed the study reported a reduction in their partner’s snoring.
We are proud of where we have got to. The Patney is a ground-breaking design that we believe will help many people improve their lives.
The request from a husband and wife at the end of the study said it all. What did they ask the researchers? Can we please keep the Patney?
