Just Like the Brake Lights on the Car in Front of You...

The Biofeedback Headband works as a brake light for your teeth grinding. When you see brake lights ahead while driving, this signals you to step on the brakes to avoid an accident. Think of your headband as a brake light that detects when you clench, giving you a gentle audible reminder to release your jaw muscles, or “step on the brakes”. Because the sound is so soft, it can let you stop your clenching without waking you or your partner. You can even adjust the volume to create the ideal level of sound for your personal desire. After a little practice responding to the sound, clenching is eliminated with very little thought, because your brain learns that responding quickly and cooperatively keeps you safe.

How SleepGuard works

How You’ll Learn to Stop Clenching As You Sleep

When the SleepGuard biofeedback headband detects that you are clenching your teeth, it makes a gentle sound that reminds you to relax your jaw muscles. After a little practice responding to the sound when you are awake, you will be able to instinctively respond in your sleep without waking up. The SleepGuard biofeedback headband not only provides biofeedback, it also tracks how many times you clench your teeth each night, as well as the total number of seconds you clench. This will allow you to see how much your clenching is reduced over time.

Just Two Minutes of Practice Assures You Respond Better While Sleeping

Below are some important steps to include in your two minutes of daytime practice to condition yourself to relax your jaw quickly and cooperatively each and every time you are signaled in your sleep.

How to Measure Your Initial Level of Nightly Clenching and Grinding

During the first few days of using the biofeedback headband, you wear it at night with the sound turned off. This will allow you to measure your initial (baseline) average clenching level. When you wake up each morning, the user friendly display will show you how many times you clenched, along with the total number of seconds you clenched.

The User-Friendly Display Offers Everything You’ll Need

The head band was designed to be easy to use and features a small electronic module that allows you to select a custom conditioning program to best suit your needs. The device is easily controlled with just two buttons, making it simple to use. These user friendly controls allow you to adjust your preferred volume and the level of clenching required to trigger an audible sound.

The display can show:

SleepGuard Biofeedback Headband

Adjustable & Hypoallergenic Headband for Your Comfort

The comfortable, size-adjustable fabric headband includes two conductive silicone rubber sensor pads (like those found on a heart-rate monitor), which rest gently against your skin. By sensing tiny EMG signals given off by your clenching muscles, these sensor pads measure how hard you are clenching. The biofeedback headband is fully adjustable for all head sizes and is hypoallergenic.

RelaxTone™ Ensures You & Your Partner Sleep Soundly

RelaxTone™ is a patented innovation of SleepGuard. The biofeedback tone is transmitted from your forehead to your inner ears by bone conduction, meaning the sound actually travels through the bone in your head to reach your ears. The advantage of bone conduction is that you are able to hear quiet tones much better than someone sleeping next to you. This allows for lower volumes that won't wake your partner, and eliminates the need for an uncomfortable earpiece that could interfere with your own sleep.

How Does the Audible Tone Work?

The tone is generated in three volume levels which correspond with how long a clench lasts. The volume at each level will be determined by your personal settings.
