Airway Management, manufacturer of the most globally researched custom oral appliances, has announced the launch of flexTAPA premium lab-made oral appliance designed to treat patients with snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea.
Flextop enters the market as the most user- and prescriber-friendly oral appliance yet. Its easily customizable design and adaptable technology eliminates barriers for laboratories to efficiently create, for clinicians to timely treat and for patients to effectively use the device to tackle snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea.
Additionally, Flextop is the first of its kind to use the new patented Vertex technology paired with the Flextop Mouth Shield Comfort accessory to promote nasal breathing, prevent dry mouth and minimize excess saliva for extra comfort. The Vertex technology, which is uniquely designed without metal parts and a wide range of development, allows the mouth to open vertically and horizontally simultaneously during the rise of the jaw.
“Vertex technology allows more room in the mouth for the tongue and minimizes jaw development,” says Dr. Keith Thornton, inventor of the Thornton Adjustable Positioner (TAP). “This will not only help patients achieve better treatment outcomes, but it will alleviate the impact of the joint.”
As Airway Management continually strives for more accessible and reliable therapy options, Flextop trials found that clinicians experienced shorter delivery times and improved treatment outcomes with less protrusion. FlexTap is not only the most convenient custom tap yet, but it is also listed as Airway Management’s most accessibly priced custom appliance for both clinicians and labs.
The Flextop tackles the poor acceptance and adherence of available oral appliances, and the recall of 16 mCPAPS. Airway is initially rolling out Flextop through their in-house lab Airway LabsBut is looking forward to launching through their partner labs in early 2023.
