Airway Management, the world’s most researched manufacturer of custom oral appliances, has announced its launch flexTAPa premium laboratory-produced oral device designed to treat patients with snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea.
flexTAP enters the market as the most user- and signator-friendly oral device to date. Its easy-to-use design and customizable technology remove barriers for laboratories to efficiently design, clinicians to provide timely treatment, and patients to effectively use the device for snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea.
In addition, flexTAP is the first product of its kind to use the new patented Vertex technology combined with the flexTAP Mouth Shield comfort accessory to promote nasal breathing, prevent dry mouth and reduce excess saliva production for added comfort. Vertex technology is uniquely designed with no metal parts and a wide range of movement without disabling the hooks, allowing the mouth to open vertically and horizontally at the same time as the jaw is moved.
“Vertex technology provides more space in the mouth for the tongue and reduces jaw movement,” says Dr. Keith Thornton, inventor of the Thornton Adjustable Positioner (TAP). “Not only will this help patients achieve better treatment outcomes, but it will also ease the impact on the joints.”
As Airway Management continuously strives for more accessible and reliable therapy options, flexTAP studies found that clinicians experienced shorter delivery times and improved treatment outcomes with less protrusion. In addition to being the most comfortable custom TAP yet, flexTAP is Airway Management’s most affordable custom device for both clinicians and laboratories.
FlexTAP addresses the issues of not accepting and applying oral appliances available on the market, and the fact that 16 mCPAP. Airway is initially implementing flexTAP in its lab Airway Labsbut looking forward to release in partner labs in early 2023.
