FAQ: Has SinuSonic undergone any clinical trials, testing or research?
SinuSonic has two published studies and more ongoing studies.
Our first study, "The SinuSonic: reducing nasal congestion with acoustic vibration and oscillating expiratory pressure" can be found in:
Medical Devices: Evidence and Research, 2019 : 12 : 305-310
Published by Dove Medical Press, 28 August 2019.
The second study completed at the Medical University of South Carolina. Study outcomes were published online in the prestigious International Forum of Allergy and Rhinology (IFAR) — the official journal of the American Rhinologic Society (ARS) and the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy (AAOA) - in a paper titled, ‘Safety and Efficacy of a Novel Device Combining Acoustic Vibration with Oscillating Expiratory Pressure for the Treatment of Nasal Congestion’.
- Patients exhibited significant increases (15%) in PNIF within five minutes of using the device (p<0.001).
- Following a two week, twice-daily regimen, PNIF scores increased over 30% versus initial baseline - a mean improvement of 25.0 L/min, and statistically and clinically significant (p<0.001).
- The Total Nasal Symptom Scores improved by 3.7 points, with 80% of patients achieving a clinically relevant improvement (p<0.001).
- Improvements were seen for all patient-reported outcome metrics at each interval, including reduced symptoms of nasal congestion, nasal drainage and sinonasal pressure.
- No major adverse events detected, with 97.5% of subjects reporting zero pain or discomfort at study conclusion.
- At study completion, 87.5% of subjects indicated they would recommend SinuSonic to a friend or family member.
