RespiFacile®: An alternative to decongestant sprays.

Designed by a team of doctors and biomaterials experts, RespiFacile® is the result of 7 years of research and 200 prototypes and is protected by 41 international patents.

With chronic nasal congestion on the rise and, on the one hand, the side effects of decongestant sprays on the nasal mucous membrane make them unsuitable for prolonged use and, on the other, the similar nasal resistance reduction between vasoconstrictors and mechanical nasal dilation established since 1998 with works of the Lorino team (see the article published in 'Chest' below), what are we waiting for to conduct tests and comparisons with the reversible mechanical nasal dilation of RespiFacile®?

What the press is saying:

"It's as if someone suddenly opened a window."

"It is the first time such a medical device has been successfully worn during a zero gravity surgery."

"The best in its category"

"RespiFacile® can be exceptional if you can carry it all night."

The unique solution provided by RespiFacile® combines 7 clear advantages:

1- RespiFacile® combines immediate effectiveness and comfort even for «very stuffy» noses. The force exerted by the ultralight beta-titanium frame significantly dilates the nasal passages and the soft silicone gel pads do not irritate the inner walls of the nose.

2- Because RespiFacile® exerts a purely mechanical action on the nostrils and contains no chemicals (hence no side effects), it can be used regularly and whenever required, making it a solution that finally meets the actual daily needs of nasal congestion sufferers. RespiFacile® dilates just the skin of the nose, not its cartilage, so the nose returns to its normal shape when RespiFacile® is removed.

3- Simple and easy to wear, RespiFacile® can be placed and removed as many times as desired, just like a pair of glasses.

4- The outstanding mechanical properties of beta-titanium mean that RespiFacile® can be reused several hundred times, making it a cost-effective solution. RespiFacile® provides a year's worth of undisturbed nights of nasal breathing without having to open your mouth to breathe.

5- Made from high-tech, ultralight materials, RespiFacile® weighs less than 2 grams. A few minutes after putting it on, you forget that you're wearing it. RespiFacile® is made in Germany and meets USP Class VI and ISO/IEC 17050-1, the most stringent biocompatibility standards. RespiFacile® is patented in 48 countries (WO/2006/010848).

6- Does not require a medical prescription.

7- RespiFacile® is easily cleaned with soapy water.

When RespiFacile® should be worn:

1- If you suffer from a chronic stuffy nose and thus cannot use a chemical-based solution on a regular or continuous basis.

2- If you snore, because nasal congestion is responsible for two-thirds of cases of snoring.

3- While sleeping, because nasal breathing triggers the alpha stage of sleep. Increased oxygenation also improves quality of sleep.

4- If you suffer from sinusitis, rhinitis or asthma, if you are pregnant and have rhinitis or if you have a deviated nasal septum, RespiFacile® significantly relieves nasal decongestion without the use of chemicals. Moreover, nasal breathing improves the functioning of the throat muscles and increases the throat's air permeability.

5- If you suffer from colds or other short-lived ailments of the nasal airways but would like to avoid chemicals and their side effects.

6- RespiFacile® reduces nasal resistance and thus decreases respiratory effort during prolonged periods of sport or physical activity. This drop in respiratory effort is highly important, especially in elderly people during the summer or periods of extreme heat.

The elderly and the sick…
A stuffy nose can have serious consequences.

Nasal obstruction can take a heavy toll on a person weakened by age or illness as well as on conditions such as cardiac fatigue (weak heart).

Improving nasal breathing relieves the body of a portion of its respiratory effort and can thus prevent serious accidents. Read more...

Top-Quality RespiFacile®
The most effective nasal dilator ever designed
How does RespiFacile® work?

RespiFacile® fits inside your nostrils and prevents your nasal valve from collapsing while you breathe in. The improvement in breathing is immediate and marked.

The reason is very simple: half of the energy needed for breathing is expended at this valve.


Meticulous research

Developed by a research team from the ENS de Chimie de Paris UMR 7045 CNRS, a prestigious Chemical Engineering School in Paris, RespiFacile® features a patented triplecurve design.

This design is the result of in-depth mechanical, biological and ergonomic research supplemented with morphology statistics.


Beta-Titanium: the very latest generation of titanium alloys

The molecular microstructure of beta-titanium gives it optimum biocompatibility and mechanical properties ideally suited to the human body.

This ultralight alloy, which is used notably in hip replacement surgery, ensures that RespiFacile® weighs less than 2 grams.


Silicone gel for optimum comfort

The pads are made of soft linear-polyaddition medical silicones for gentle contact with the skin inside the nose and ensure optimum comfort.
