Manipal Cure and Care launches SNORBEN in India

Manipal Cure and Care [MCC], India’s first health and wellness center, announced the launch of Snorben, an anti-snoring nasal device. The launch was done by Reeth Abraham. Arjuna Awardee and an ace athlete in the national & International events.

Developed by Benson Medical Services, Canberra, Australia, Snorben is a clinically tested device that is manufactured from medical grade materials. It comes in three different sizes, giving customers a choice to opt for what suits them best. Currently available in North America and Australia, Snorben has been highly recommended by ENT surgeons.

Snoring is one of the most widely prent disorders affecting over 40 per cent of men and 20 per cent of women. Apart from lifestyle issues, snoring also has serious health implications as it is generally regarded the first symptom of the Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) syndrome. OSA means that the airway has collapsed or is blocked during sleep. The blockage may cause shallow breathing or breathing pauses and can lead to fatal implications like a heart attack.

While it is generally believed that snoring is a malady of obese people, studies have shown that in India, a shocking 7.5 per cent of healthy Indians between 35 to 65 years of age suffer from the malady. Additional studies have shown that 46 per cent of the subjects with sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) had a BMI (body mass index) of less than 30 and 27 per cent of subjects with SDB had a BMI of less than 27. Prence of SDB was 19.5 per cent and that of OSAHS was 75 per cent in healthy urban Indian males between 35 to 65 years of age. Snoring is a malady that also affects people in physical condition like marathon runners and other athletes.

Snorben is designed to help anyone of any age, who suffers from nasal disorders such as: allar collapsed (collapsed nostrils), deviated septum (bent nose), damaged nostrils and narrow nostrils. Snorben ensures that nasal passages remain open, allowing one to breathe freely through the nose and not through the mouth.

Mr. Somnath Das, COO, Manipal Cure & Care said, “Snorben is a break-through device for people suffering from snoring and sleep apnea disorders. Snoring, as we all know, also have a lot of social implications and its occurrence has strong medical reasons. Manipal Cure & Care is committed to providing overall healthcare solutions and improving the quality of life lead by people. Snorben is another step in this direction and following it will be a large number of other medically proven and accepted products.”

Mr. Richard Benson, Director, Benson Medical Services Pty. Ltd., Australia said, ” Snorben has been a success internationally wherein we have been distributing it through ENT surgeons in Australia. We are convinced with the commitment Manipal Cure & Care have towards providing healthcare to people and their track record made them the obvious choice as our retail partners in India.”
