Sufferers of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) as well as heavy snorers can now look forward to greater relief and a better quality of life. Nyxoah is developing a pioneering sleep apnea treatment in the form of a neurostimulation device like no other on the market.
Not only will our product allow people with OSA to enjoy a full night's comfortable sleep, it will also achieve this result with a tiny implant that's minimally invasive, long-lasting and inserted on an outpatient basis.
Nyxoah's solution is as effective as it is simple. Relaxation of the tongue muscle is very often the reason why the airway becomes obstructed during sleep. So a tiny implantable neurostimulator is inserted close to the tongue muscle. When apnea sufferers go to bed, they stick a small and thin disposable patch on their chin.
The patch wirelessly powers the implant, which stimulates the nerves to the tongue and makes it contract. This ensures that the airway remains open throughout the night. There's no clumsy oral appliances or complex air pressure apparatus to use. There's no noise.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) can be a very troubling condition. Because the muscles and soft tissue in the throat and tongue collapse during sleep, the airway is blocked. Breathing stops for several seconds, until the brain triggers a brief arousal from deep sleep so that a breath can be taken again.
If you belong to the 1-2% of people who suffer from moderate to serious OSA problems, you'll be glad that Nyxoah has arrived. We believe that our sleep apnea treatment offers the easiest and most practical way to restoring normal throat and tongue function while sleeping, exceeding sleep apnea masks in terms of convenience and comfort.
