No More Sleeping on Your Back!
If your Snoring or Sleep Disorder is worse on your back then Night Shift is the device to assist you and your partner's sleep.
Night Shift can be purchased without a prescription if you know your Snoring or Sleep disorder is reduced if you stay off your back while you sleep. Night Shift is also prescribed or recommended as a sleep position modification aid by most of Australia's top Sleep Physicians/Sleep Labs.
Worn comfortably around the neck Night Shift senses your head/neck position. When you roll onto your back Night Shift vibrates to encourage you to change position. This vibration starts very gently and increase over time until you move off your back. Night Shift records this data and your sleep quality for up to 12 months.
See the Reports section for more details and example reports. We see from reports produced by the 1000's of devices sold, many customers learn to move off their back with decreased vibrations over time.
Night Shift is recommended for:
- People who only snore when on their back
- Sleep Apnea only in the supine position (On your back) as diagnosed in a overnight Sleep Study
- Dental Splint users who still snore on their back but not on there side
- CPAP users who require a lower pressure if they stay off their back
- Complimenting result of Provent or Theravent
When it comes to snoring, those affected are not limited to the snorer. Bed partners and roommates alike can be awakened and kept up only a nightly basis as a result of snoring.
We recommend that Night Shift is not used on patients who:
- suffer from tics or tremors of the head
- suffer from cardiac arrhythmia corrected by an artificial pace-maker
- have neck less than 12 inches (30 cm) or greater than 22 inches (55 cm)
- have an open cut or wound near the neck (you may need to temporarily discontinue use)
The night shift device has perfect combinations of 3 major functions :
- Sleep position detection - helping the user to understand their body movement while sleeping.
- Vibrotactile feedback- assisting users to maintain a side-sleeping position therefore eliminating snoring.
- Detailed compliance report- helping users understand their snoring frequency, sleep efficiency, pre and post usage comparison and sleeping position.

How Night Shift Works
Night Shift is clinically proven positional sleep therapy device that actively discourages users from sleeping on their back, to prevent snoring and related sleep disorders. Worn comfortably around the neck during sleep, Night Shift produces a gentle vibration any time the wearer attempts to sleep on their back. The vibration will incrementally increase until the user changes their sleep position.
Night Shift does not usually disturb your sleep. This has been determined from observing EEG (Electrical Brain Activity) of patients undergoing, overnight sleep studies, whilst wearing the Night Shift. The EEG arousal(sleep disturbance causing a lighter level of sleep or wake) usually happens when the patient rolls onto their back, before the Night Shift responds, not from the response.
Night Shift records relevant of data about your sleep including:
- Sleep Time
- Snoring Level
- Head/Neck Position
- Frequency and Intensity of Response
Sleep time is derived from Actigraphy, which is a widely validated method of measuring sleep from movement. See Wikipedia for more details.
Published studies, comparing sleep with and without the Night Shift, show participants spent less than 5% of their time sleeping on their backs while using the Night Shift.
Studies also found that 90% of POSA (Positional Obstructive Sleep Apnoea) participants responded positively to Night Shift therapy. Participants also experienced a reduction in daytime sleepiness and other medical conditions related to prolonged tiredness.
Measure Sleep Quality with Night Shift
Night Shift not only prevents users from sleeping on their back, it also measures sleep quality and snoring frequency. It provides the user with functional reports to monitor the effectiveness of the therapy. Night Shift can also determine whether or not poor sleep quality as a result of snoring is limited to supine sleeping.
Night Shift Reports Provide a Wealth of Information about your Sleep
The Night Shift Portal allows user to set Night Shift to Therapy-OFF mode to monitor sleep monitor sleep patterns without the device vibrating to establish a baseline. When Trial Mode is selected, the first night is set to Therapy-Off (example below) to obtain a baseline measure of sleep quality. It automatically switches to permanently provide Therapy-On (example above), while saving the first night baseline for comparison. Therapy-Off mode allows users to:
- Your natural tendency toward wanting to sleep on your back, and whether this behavioral tendency changes from night to night.
- Whether or not you have learned to stay off your back without therapy.
- The effectiveness of treatment provided by other sleep apnea or snoring therapies when sleeping in all positions.
Monthly and Summarised Daily Reports
These summarised part of the report is designed to demonstrate to your physician that you are routinely using the therapy, as well as help you monitor your own therapy. After One month the data is moved to a Monthly Summary which shows the last 12 months summarised data.
