Airway Management, the world’s most researched custom oral appliance manufacturer, has announced the launch of flexTAPa premium lab-made oral device designed to treat patients with snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea.
flexTAP enters the market as the most user- and prescription-friendly oral appliance. Its easily customizable design and adaptable technology eliminate barriers for labs to efficiently design, for clinicians to timely treat, and for patients to effectively use the device to treat mild to moderate snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
Additionally, flexTAP is the first of its kind to use new patented Vertex technology combined with the comfortable flexTAP Mouth Shield accessory to promote nasal breathing, prevent dry mouth and minimize excess saliva for added comfort . Uniquely designed with no metal parts and a wide range of advancement without the need to disconnect the hooks, Vertex Technology allows the mouth to open vertically and horizontally simultaneously during jaw advancement.
“Vertex technology allows more space in the mouth for the tongue and minimizes jaw advancement,” says Dr. Keith Thornton, inventor of the Thornton Adjustable Positioner (TAP). “Not only will this help patients achieve better treatment outcomes, but it will ease the impact on the joints.”
As Airway Management continually strives for more accessible and reliable therapy options, flexTAP trials revealed that physicians experienced shorter delivery times and improved treatment outcomes with fewer delays. Not only is the flexTAP the most convenient custom TAP to date, but it also ranks as the most affordable custom Airway Management device for both clinicians and labs.
FlexTAP addresses the poor market acceptance and adherence of disposable oral devices and the recall of 16 mCPAP. Airway is initially rolling out flexTAP through their in-house lab Airway laboratoriesbut looks forward to launching through their partner labs in early 2023.
