Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is typically caused by a blockage of the airway when the soft tissue in the rear of the throat collapses during sleep. Untreated, OSA causes a number of serious health problems, including high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, memory impairment, weight gain, and headaches. The standard treatment for OSA is what is known as “Continuous Positive Airway Pressure,” or CPAP.
CPAP machines can mitigate this problem, but their poor design causes sleep apnea sufferers to give up on it: 80% of CPAP users stop using it within one year. intends to change that with a revolutionary design that will work as well as any other CPAP machine, and patients won't have to deal with cumbersome, uncomfortable masks.
Another reason patients give up on the traditional CPAP is that they get dirty and need to be cleaned regularly, because of its large size, it is very troublesome to clean... Not so with it. It is small in size and easy to clean. As a result, every night you get a clean device. It also liberates you from the “mess” of uncomfortable straps and the noisy hum that both come with other CPAP machines.
It’s design is a combination of several inventions, chief of which are the micro-blowers originally intended for heat regulation for chips in computers. These micro-blowers are entirely contained within the device, so there is no need for external air hoses. Each device is battery operated, so no need for any power wires. Just “plug” the comfortable buds into your nostrils and breathe all night long.
