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.

The SinuSonic complies with all applicable FDA regulations.
The SinuSonic is designed as a single-user product and can be reused for 6 months or 1080 minutes of use. It can then be disposed of in normal household waste.
For best results use your SinuSonic for two minutes per session at least twice a day, every day or more often as needed. There is no negative associated with using SinuSonic as many times per day as required to address your condition. The key to success with SinuSonic is daily use. Our research shows that the longer you use SinuSonic the better your results will be.
The SinuSonic lasts for six months and then it needs to be replaced. Like toothbrushes, razor blades and other hygiene equipment, over time it must be replaced for sanitary reasons. Use your SinuSonic dailly to maximize the value and the results!
Our studies have primarily focused on congestion symptoms, but studies have shown patients experience improvements in nasal drainage after using the SinuSonic.
We have not conducted studies on sinusitis, but SinuSonic does help relieve congestion due to rhinitis, including allergic rhinitis.
The SinuSonic may be recyclable in your area – follow your local recycling center's procedures for electronic device recycling. Or you can visit our recycling page

Unfortunately no product is 100% effective for everyone. Our research indicates that there is a small percentage of people who have a condition that just won’t be resolved by SinuSonic. We recommend that those people see an Ear, Nose, and Throat specialist or a Rhinologist for a more detailed review of their condition. More practically we find that the people who report not having success with SinuSonic are not using the device consistently for two minutes twice a day (or more as required) every day as the research indicates is most effective.

Yes! In our published research SinuSonic did improve nasal drainage. Use SinuSonic two minutes twice a day every day for best results. Just keep some tissues handy to remove any discharge from your nose.
Yes! SinuSonic helps with inflammation caused by allergies through a combination of specific vibration at 128hz and positive expiratory pressure. SinuSonic also appears to help produce nitric oxide in the nasal cavity which can also help reduce the inflammation overall.
