Snoring is a condition that affects around 2 billion people worldwide. To solve this problem, Myofunctional therapy has been used as an effective treatment in this rehabilitation. However, long term therapy on a daily basis is a great motivation challenge. This project uses novel technology and design methods to motivate people during their snoring therapy. A tongue interface fitted with sensors is connected to an app and through different movements and pressure the user can perform myofunctional therapy while enjoying playful and relaxing exercises. This gamified interaction increases motivation for daily use and helps to gain self-perception of the movements.
