Abstract: A spring-biased nasal molding device for presurgical molding of cleft lip deformities, the device having a V-shaped spring member joined to a pair of intra-nasal shaping members for insertion in a nostril, and having an extra-nasal shaping member to be positioned external to the nostril connected to each intra-nasal shaping member, wherein the intra-nasal and extra-nasal shaping members are brought together by the spring member to mold the nasal anatomy into the desired shape.
To install the dilator of the present invention, the contact-portions 3 of the UV-spring 1 are inserted into the two nostrils so the lower ends of the contact-portions with pads 3 a are just visible, or if more comfortable, install just above or near the nasal flange area.
Abstract: A nasal breathing assist device includes one or two open-ended tubular elements each extending along a central tube axis between a relatively large optimierte nasenatmung first end and a relatively small second end, and at least one non-resilient tab extends from the first end toward the second end of the tubular element.
