MYOTAPE does not cover the mouth. Instead, it surrounds the mouth, bringing the lips together with a light, elastic tension that helps to maintain lip closure and ensure nasal breathing.
This elastic tension serves as a continuous reminder to keep the lips together. When you or your child open your mouth to breathe, the feeling of tension from the tape will prompt the mouth to close.
The tape is a training support, designed to restore nasal breathing patterns both during wakefulness and sleep. It allows the freedom to open the mouth at any time, and to communicate effectively whilst wearing the tape. To change behavioral patterns, it is recommended that the tape is worn for 60 to 90 days.
How to Apply?
Remove the paper backing from your MYOTAPE
Using your hands, gently stretch the tape by about 20%
If applying tape to your child, encourage them to bring their lips together
Gently place the tape so that it surrounds your or your child’s mouth
Designed by Patrick McKeown, author of The Oxygen Advantage, MYOTAPE safely brings the lips together to help ensure nasal breathing. The tape can be worn by adults, teenagers and children aged 4 years and up.
