Chin Plate Stops Mouth Breathing (Dec, 1936)
Chin Plate Stops Mouth Breathing
AN ADJUSTABLE chin plate has been developed by Oliver Lowry, Meridian, Miss., which, if worn at night while sleeping, eliminates mouth breathing, the principal cause of “whistling” and snoring. The device consists of a padded metal plate that fits the contour of the lower jaw. Adjustable elastic bands insure a satisfactory fit. Two small ribbons that run around the neck are needed when the device is worn by persons having short, stubby chins.
