If you sleep on your back and snore, the Night Shift could be a simple, non-invasive way to treat your snoring or sleep apnea. Plus it won't disturb your sleeping partner - there is no noise, it only vibrates!
Night Shift encourages side sleeping by determining your actual sleep position. When it senses you are on your back it quietly prompts you to move onto your side with gentle vibrations. This means less snoring and better sleep - for you and your partner!
This form of treatment is clinically proven*.
The Night Shift repositioner can delay its start so you can still fall asleep on your back. It then gently “nudges” you onto their side, thereby opening your airways and reduce snoring. Night Shift starts by the second night of use. (The first night is used as baseline comparison data) Plus, Night Shift will show you that it is working by providing detailed reporting on your sleep position, snoring level and body movement the very next day. Night Shift stores 12 months of sleep history, so comparison is easy.
Using the Night Shift is easy:
Night Shift includes a two-year warranty covering workmanship problems related to the electronics. The battery and haptic motors carry a one-year warranty.

Q : What is the item number for NightShift I can quote to my Private Health Insurance provider to check if I can claim part of the purchase back?
A : Unfortunately there is not a number. If you quote a "NightShift Sleep Repositioner for the treatment of Sleep Apnoea", it should be sufficient.
This is my second Night Shift. My first one expired after 4 years of continual use every night. This product is excellent and I am so happy I was recommended it instead of a CPAP machine. I tried a CPAP when I had an accident and couldn’t sleep on my side and it gave me massive headaches due to my obstructive sinuses. I have spoken to CPAP users and they explain all the continual problems using a CPAP. This just connects around your neck and is so unobstructive. On my fist Night Shift, I had to fit a dog collar because I used to unconsciously take it off through the night, but with the new one, I am now used to it and I don’t touch it. You have to have a sleep study to ensure you don’t suffer from sleep apnoea while sleeping on your side, if that’s the case, this is the right product for you.
Expensive little device but clever bit of technology to encourage side sleeping for keeping airways open. My AHI immediately decreased from 12+ down to less than 5. Sleep studies had shown sleeping on my back was largely the trigger for apnea. After ten days I am still adjusting because the buzzing wakes me up, and I still roll on my back a lot. Hoping it will train my brain soon as I’m very tired from waking so much.
I was not entirely convinced that this unit would help me but I decided to try. Anything for a good sleep. It has definitely helped. The quality of my sleep has improved and the information that can be easily downloaded clearly indicates how much time has been spent on your back, sides and front. The device itself is quite comfortable and despite being a light and fussy sleeper, after about two nights I don’t notice it. I was diagnosed with disruptive sleep apnea which essentially means I need to avoid sleeping on my back. This device has definitely helped and although it is not cheap, it is certainly worth trying. Anything that improves sleep is worth a go!
