Somnova Smart Sleeping Mat

Editor's Rating
4.9?
Discovered on 2016-12-22

Say no to snoring and head for a peaceful sleep every night with the Somnova Smart Sleeping Mat. This non-invasive mat will make sure to switch your sleeping position and stop you from snoring in a silent way. It will also give you a relaxing acupoint massage for inducing a better sleep. As compared to other wearable anti-snoring solution like sleep masks or nose strips, this more convenient and comfortable. Whenever snoring is detected, the sleeping mat will move your body on its side and relieve you from snoring at the same time. The kit consists of an inflatable mat and a control case. You need to place the inflatable mat under your bedsheet. As soon as the system detects the snoring noise, it will inflate the mat in a way such that your sleeping position gets changed to make the snoring noise die out. The entire operation takes place in absolute silence (as low as 35 dB) to ensure that your sleep is not affected by any chance. Currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter, this smart sleeping mat is an ergonomic and super comfortable solution for a perfect, noise-free sleep!

Review from Kickstarter
Gday All My feed back based on my exp with Somnova as I mentioned before had some issues and has never really got any better and I have now discarded using the product as Glen mentioned the plastic makes your back feel hot even if placed in that cloth bag and under the sheet and also
It crumples up as I slept forming peaks and troughs and specific to my unit it never detected hence no bag inflation (however even in test mode no inflation/deflation) I have raised all these with the developers they def have been very responsive.

@Glen T In general, the vibration is not obvious and very gentle. However, different people have different sensibility of the vibration and sound. In this case, I suggest you turn on the adaptation mode.
Glen T
Review from Kickstarter
yes. foam is under the unit that is wrapped in a towel. which runs to the mat which is the case that came with the unit. And that is under a sheet i sleep on.
Pillow then sits on the top section were the tubes connect.
SOMNOVA
Review from Kickstarter
@Glen T Thank you for the feedback. May I ask did you put the foam under the control case?
Glen T
Review from Kickstarter
3rd night - unit is still waking me. I have done what you have suggested and wrapped the unit in a towel which made it quieter but now noticed that sound is coming thru the pipes and vibrates and reverberates from under the pillow when the motor us running. It more noticeable when on your side and ear is on the pillow.
I will try to re-position the mat and see how it goes again tonight.

In two days of use it has not detected me snoring once which is not correct not sure what's going on!!!
SOMNOVA
Review from Kickstarter
@Glen T Thank you for your support! Thank you for your suggestion! We have tried various methods to lower the sound and control it in 35 db. As you may notice, there are some little holes on the side of the case, which is the mic. For further lower the sound, I suggest you can put the case into a foam box and just let mic side uncovered. Another, for the mat, I suggest you can cover it with the grey cloth cover, which is cotton-made and breathable. Or you can put the mat under your bed sheet.

@Rajesh We do release the app for the product on iOS. Hope you enjoy it. Thank you !

Review from Kickstarter
Tried it out for the first time last night. - Have it sitting on the bed side table on the foam mat and i have to say its a bit loud as it woke me. a suggest would be to have a external mic you can plug in so that the unit could be placed further away or under the bed.
Other thing i notice is that since you are basically sleeping on a plastic mat and as it is summer here, it is not the most conformable thing to sleep on as you end up sweating all over your back as it is not breathable.
other than those two thing so far i will try to continue testing this

Gday Curious as to if you have released your app for the product on iOS ?

Review from Kickstarter
Martin, seriously if you have a problem with this product then go away because no one cares. Do you know how many pencils, pens, shoes, and watches have been released on Kickstarter that have been a world 'first' in something. It doesn't mean they are lying, it means they understand what product differentiation is and have rightfully capitalized on it. I have a wipebook. It is a wipebook with plastic pages that you can wipe off when you use a marker. Laminated pages existed before them. They are not a 'fraud'
I bought a rocketbook, it is a book that you can safely put in a microwave without damaging. What else is different? Not much except that it sends you standard Frixion erasable ink pens which happen to erase at high temperature (ie,. microwave). The SOMNOVA and Nora are different products. Yes they have similarities. But so does a Honda Accord and Hyundai Elantra. Ford didn't invent the Model T car back in 1908 and everyone around the world screamed....FORD MADE A CAR! NOBODY ELSE DO THIS EVER! No. Instead this helped to birth a new industry. I get that you PERSONALLY have a problem with SOMNOVA, but please realize that none of us care and you are just annoying others. The Nora works for some people but not all. The SOMNOVA is a different take that has a heavier build/larger mat to turn an entire body, as opposed to nudging a person's head slightly, and appears to have a much heavier duty air supply pump.
I am purchasing this as a gift for my dad as a small push to his head would not stop that buzz saw of a snore. In this respect, SOMNOVA is the ONLY solution that would be appropriate for the amount of effort/force needed to allow him to have a restful sleep (and everyone else in his house).

Review from Kickstarter
@John H. Halpern, M.D. if a person snoring when he is sleeping on left side, SOMNOVA can move the person from sleeping on left side to right side.SOMNOVA will help you stop snoring just like a person gentlely pushs you when you are snoring but without waking you up.

Review from Kickstarter
@martin schnitzer please do not promote any other product here, you have already did it for third time.SOMNOVA is base on positional therapy which has been proves to be remarkable for snoring by medical profession many years , on the contrary, the other way to stop snoring like twist the head by moving the pillow is not be proved by medical community.Please be respect to our work!if everyone need more information about SOMNOVA or positional therapy,please send me a email:kenxie@somnova.com. by the way, I saw you backed our compaign,so thank you for your support.but please do not promote any other product here!it seems that you are one of them to know more about our product and want to get more traffic to your product!

@John H. Halpern, M.D. thank you for your attantion. we need more feedback from backers to make SOMNOVA better and better, to help more and more people who have snoring problem.SOMNOVA has already to be manufactured and we promised that it will be delivered in Mar. no delay.
SOMNOVA
Review from Kickstarter
@John H. Halpern, M.D. positional therapy is a effective way to stop snoring,we have more information from medical community for your questions.please leave me a email ,then I can send you more references.If a person snoring a lot and may danger to their life,doctor will suggest that they should sleep on side all night and use CPAP in the same time.but for a person is not in danger ,we suggest that they use SOMNOVA because use CPAP is very uncomfortable.
and we will make sure SOMNOVA be shiped to all over the world in Mar. and keep updating at least once in a month.
thank you for your support.

Review from Kickstarter
That's it...this says it all for me. It does NOT matter that this is an important holiday to customers or backers. Money is money and integrity is everything. You guys put your campaign together for right now so you knew you were setting this up around Chinese New Year. I've clearly asked you to pledge to be good communicators post-funding. TWICE. Lack of response is unacceptable and telegraphs future trouble. If your product comes to market: great! I might buy it then. But I'm done with backing campaigns where when delays start expanding then the Creators start retreating. Moreover you failed to clearly answer about snoring side sleepers. I'm out. I will reduce my pledge to $1 so I can comment and push you guys if and when bad faith starts upsetting fellow backers. For me, the lack of reply is enough for me to urge fellow backers to also pull out. Let this campaign fail and get re-started until the Creators do a better job at communicating to our Kickstarter community. Unfortunately for fellow backers...I suspect not enough will read this in time and/or are willing to take the gamble this campaign will work out in the end. This ain't my first rodeo KS brothers... you were warned.
John H. Halpern, M.D.
Review from Kickstarter
Well, yes, it is Chinese New Year and many of us on Kickstarter are very well aware how important this holiday is including how extensively business can stop during this time. Happy New Year!
That being said: 1) If I understand you correctly, Somnova will encourage those snoring on their back to turn to their side and thereby stop snoring or at least reduce snoring... but if a person is a side sleeper and starts snoring: what happens then? Does your device still inflate? Might that not promote the person to move to lying on their back, then the snoring gets worse, and then device activates even more? How is side-sleep snoring handled by the machine? Also, it sounds then like this device will not be able to do anything more for a side-sleep snorer, right?
2. The Creator has failed to respond to this request so far...I will re-post it:
"To reassure remaining and potential Backers, I recommend that you guarantee that you will issue at least one Update a month and that you will answer questions in the Comments sections a ta minimum of once a week." Will you agree to do this?

Review from Kickstarter
@Theo thank you for your suggestion, we have already finished the last proofing, we took some photos in the factory. we will update soon, and also we need backers to build up our community,we really want SOMNOVA can help the people who are disturbed by snoring,Let them say goodbye to snoring as soon as they meet SOMNOVA
SOMNOVA
Review from Kickstarter
@John H. Halpern, M.D. sorry for the late reply, these days are chinese new year, so everybody is on holiday. our product is base on positional therapy,which mean sleeping on side will help you breathing better and reducing snoring .without SOMNOVA help, a person can't hold himself sleep on side all night,because if you sleep on side all night, your half of body will be very tired.and SOMNOVA can help you sleep on side only when you snore.
Theo
Review from Kickstarter
There are just 5 days to go, and a lot of money has been raised. Also, the number of backers is decreasing. Have a look at the daily data figures on Kicktraq: http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/872845194/somnova-the-worlds-first-best-super-smart-sleep-ma/#chart-daily The creators are sitting back, and not bothering to issue any updates. Why should they? They've got a lot of money coming their way very soon. Dr Halpern (below) is right - there's a red flag waving. I would say that there are alarm bells sounding as well. And they're getting louder.
John H. Halpern, M.D.
Review from Kickstarter
A Creator who signs in every day but doesn't respond to comments here even before the campaign ends...is a VERY worrisome sign. Lack of communication is a RED FLAG of warning to all backers, current and potential.
John H. Halpern, M.D.
Review from Kickstarter
What if a person snores even while side-sleeping? What then??? This device is of little use in this scenario? To reassure remaining and potential Backers, I recommend that you guarantee that you will issue at least one Update a month and that you will answer questions in the Comments sections ata minimum of once a week.

No updates and backers dropping off. Is there "trouble at the mill" ?

Review from Kickstarter
@Martin, although Somnova uses a similar technique, it is different. If you read the Campaign description, they also say why they don't lift the pillow like Nora does. So even IF Somnova took an idea from Nora, they improved it (hopefully ;-)).
SOMNOVA
Review from Kickstarter
@martin schnitzer Please be respected, please do not mention or promotion any other product here as we saw you did not pledge that product as well, Somnova idea came out from Dec 2014, and we have build many versions to testing it, make sure it is the best sleeping solution for everyone before coming to Kickstarter.Somnova is base on the postural therapy which has been proves to be remarkable for snoring by medical profession many years.

This is an insult!
Take this project off kickstarter immediately.
It's a complete rip-off!
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/behrouz/nora-the-smart-snoring-solution! Do you have no shame??? You are steeling the idea of people who are creative innovators and work hard to make a difference. Go home and snore till the end of days!!!!
