According to its description on Philips website, the position monitor detector "detects when you're moving onto your back and delivers vibrations that prompt you to sleep on your side." The sensor has a self-learning algorithm that optimizes vibration levels based on your individual response rate.
Other features of the SmartSleep Snoring Relief Band include:
Please note that this device is for individuals without sleep apnea or other serious sleep issues.
