Nasilator Sleep | Study
Research study evidencing the role of internal nasal dilator Nasilator in increasing the nasal cross sectional area
Study reference: Dale Newton MD, et al. Comparative evaluation of nasal passage dilation by mechanical nasal devices assessed by CT scans. April 2012
To compare the effectiveness in increasing the minimum cross-sectional area of the nasal passages, when using an external nasal dilator (leading brand nasal strips) and an internal nasal dilator (Nasilator™) in healthy subjects.

The study was performed in a group of asymptomatic healthy adults, aged between 28 and 81, with no upper or lower respiratory complaints. The subjects were evaluated while using an external nasal dilator (leading brand nasal strips) and an internal nasal dilator (Nasilator™). CT scan images of the subjects were taken while using each nasal device and a Board-certified NeuroRadiologist performed the comparative analysis of the resultant images.
- The Nasilator™ was 27 percent more effective in increasing the nasal cross sectional area compared to leading brand nasal strips.
- The Nasilator™ increased the area of the aerated nasal passage by more than 50 percent compared to baseline.
- The Nasilator™ proved to be significantly more effective in increasing the nasal cross sectional area compared to leading brand nasal strips.
- The Nasilator™ increased the area of the nasal passage two fold compared to baseline.
- The Nasilator™ was consistently better in opening the nasal passages compared to nasal strips.
