Hi Jordan Florian , those are really important questions, thanks for asking.
First of all, the original concept is based on the mask and hose used for apnea treatment, I can tell you from a personal experience that a person can sleeps more than 7 hours every night moving in bed without facing difficulties. Of course, there could be some activities that should be evaluated before using the mask, however, I think it will be similar to wear a harness that is currently mandatory for some of these jobs.
In terms of weight, hose and mask (Polycarbonate) are very light, less than 150gr. The device that should be placed at hips-height doesn’t have a final prototype yet, but it won’t be greater than 250gr, which we think it’s pretty manageable. We are still working on that. Glad you like it :)
