Below you will find a list of frequently asked questions. Is your question not listed or if you need a more detailed answer, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Why do I need to replace my Airmax® after 3 months?
After 3 months of daily use, the material (S.E.B.S) loses its softness and becomes less comfortable to wear and less efficacious. We therefore recommend Airmax® users to replace their Airmax® after that period of time.
Do you have a size Large (L) for the Airmax®?
The size of the Airmax® is not related to the actual size of your nose! It depends on the inside of your nose and the widening needed that will provide the best relief. The size Small (S) fits 20% of the population while the size Medium (M) fits the rest (80%). A large (L) size would not bring any additional benefit in terms of efficacy/relief vs. comfort. We might develop a large version in the future if technical opportunities allow us to improve that ratio.
Is Airmax suitable for children under 12?
Under the age of 12, the nose is still growing. In some cases it is still growing until the age of 17-18 years old. In general we would not recommend the use of the Airmax® in younger people.
Is the Airmax® visible during usage?
Yes, Airmax® is visible under the nasal septum. This is a good indication that the Airmax® has been properly placed inside the nose.
Is it normal to remove the Airmax® during my sleep or to lose it while exercising?
If the Airmax® falls out during sleeping, it is probably because you automatically removed it. Sometimes it takes a couple weeks to get used to using the Airmax®, but usually no more than two weeks. If you lose the Airmax® while exercising, please ensure that you are using the sport version and not the classic version. If you are using the right version, you might still lose the Airmax® because of sweating.
What is S.E.B.S. and is it safe?
S.E.B.S. is the abbreviation for: Styrene Ethylene Butylene Styrene. According to Greenpeace this is an acceptable alternative to PVC. S.E.B.S. is used for example in toothbrushes, in medical devices or in products used by dentists. S.E.B.S. has an excellent resistance to water, acids and bases. S.E.B.S. is safer than PVC.
Is there any known allergic reaction caused by the use of Airmax®?
No known allergic reaction has been reported so far.
I have been using the Airmax® for a few weeks now and my nose is a bit irritated. Is that normal?
Some people with a dry nose or a deviated septum might experience irritation in their nose after a few weeks of use. This can be avoided by using Vaseline or water on the legs of the Airmax® before inserting it into the nose.
If my snoring is due to mouth breathing, will I still benefit from the Airmax®?
Yes. Airmax® will facilitate nasal breathing and will therefore help you switch from mouth breathing to nasal breathing which consequently helps you reduce snoring.
Will the Airmax® change the shape of my nose?
When wearing the Airmax®, the narrowest part of the nasal entrance is slightly widened. However, this mechanical widening disappears when removing the Airmax®. The Airmax® will not affect the shape of your nose after you have used it!
