The Nasal Valve Support™ structure is designed and contoured to comfortably wedge between the side wall of the nose and the septum (middle wall), thus effectively keeping the nasal air way open.
More specifically, the small ring of the nasal valve support is designed to be positioned at the nasal valve area. The small ring acts as a replacement (and removable) nasal valve. The nasal valve, the section of the nasal passage between the nostril area and the nasal cavity, is the narrowest air way passage in human nose. This area and its immediate surrounding are the source of the majority of the obstructive nasal breathing problems. Nasal Valve Support™ simply and effectively keeps this nasal valve area open, allowing you to breathe comfortably.
