Brief description Obstructive sleep apnoea is a common and debilitating breathing problem in sleep with serious effects on sleep and health. A third of patients could be very simply treated by avoiding sleeping on their back. Existing treatments are uncomfortable, often not used and better options are needed. This project will test symptom relief and treatment adherence with a new comfortable low cost supine avoidance therapy against current best practice treatment.
