Treatments

There are 4 common types of clinically proven treatments for Mild OSA

Three of them open up or create space in the airway. The fourth, NMES, does something unique.

1. Nighttime treatments

Uncomfortable. Difficult to tolerate

MAD / CPAP

Mandibular (jaw) Advancement Device works by temporarily moving the jaw forward. CPAP machine pumps air at pressure into your upper airway.

2. Surgical treatments

Invasive. Variable Results3

Surgery

Surgery is usually an option after other treatments have failed. Examples include tissue or tonsil removal.

3. Daytime NMES therapy

Simple, effective & painless

NMES

NMES physiologically retrains the upper airway and tongue, to stay in its natural position while you sleep.

eXciteOSA For Sleep Apnea – A Daytime Therapy

Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) with eXciteOSA®

NMES safely activates nerves and trains muscles. NMES is a familiar and well-established technique in medicine and athletics.

Sleep apnoea often has multiple causes. A common cause is the tongue and the upper airway muscles. Aging, diet, and other contributors can lead to neuromuscular degeneration in these areas resulting in OSA.

eXciteOSA for sleep apnea changes this. It trains your tongue and upper airway muscles to have the stamina to stay in position all night long, letting you sleep soundly.

Helps your body to help itself

Oral Dental Devices (MRD/MAD) require you to wear something at night and effectively splint your airway open by moving the tongue forward and out the way. Surgery can also be an option. eXciteOSA for Sleep Apnea is a daytime therapy.

NMES is different

Convenient daytime therapy

Comfortable and painless leaving you with nothing to wear at night.

Reduces Apnea’s

Published studies show a reduction of 52% in AHI and 50% in ODI – All without a CPAP or MAD.

Retrains the upper airway

Physiologically retrains the upper airway. No other device currently on the market does that.

The App

You are in control

Use the app to control the intensity of the stimulation and get guidance, reminders and notifications about your therapy.

Better sleep or your money back.*

If you do not experience improved sleep after completing 42 therapies in 8 weeks, we will refund you the price of the device.

“I have this simple device… [that] I use during the day [so] that I can sleep quite happily without thinking about having to wear a mask at night.”

Find a Therapy That Works for You

OSA can be a progressive disease and should be treated and treated early

With new alternatives available, like daytime therapy, there is now no excuse. Consult a physician as, if left untreated, OSA places extra strain on your health.

Frequently asked questions

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) machines stimulate the nerves exclusively for the purpose of relieving pain.

Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) produces regular contractions of muscles and produces changes in blood flow, activated nerves, and muscle [fibers], which may increase the health of the target muscle and surrounding soft tissues. Definition from the Handbook of Clinical Neurology, 2012

eXciteOSA® is a user-controllable neuromuscular electrical stimulator (NMES) that delivers a mild electrical current with defined frequencies to stimulate and improve muscle function in the mouth and tongue.

Unlike traditional sleep apnea treatments, eXciteOSA® strengthens tongue and throat muscle tone, to prevent excessive muscle relaxation during sleep, reducing airway collapse and therefore reducing OSA.

A daytime therapy with no night-time wearable is necessary for a better night’s sleep.

There are 4 common types of clinically proven treatments for snoring, each with the goal of opening or freeing your airway.

Mandibular (jaw) Advancement Device works by temporarily moving the jaw forward and the tongue goes with it, creating space at the back of your throat to help you breathe. CPAP on the other hand delivers positive pressure to open up your airway.

Surgery is usually an option after other treatments have failed. Examples include tissue or tonsil removal, again, with the intention of creating space. Alternatively, there are now implantable devices that, when switched on, apply gentle stimulation to key airway muscles during sleep, allowing you to breathe normally. This treatment is normally reserved for severe patients who have refused or do not tolerate CPAP.

NMES physiologically retrains the upper airway and tongue to maintain the tongue’s natural position while you sleep, effectively helping your body help itself. eXciteOSA For Sleep Apnea is the only device that delivers NMES. You can also refer to the chart above to better illustrate the main difference.

Risk-free trial

*The eXciteOSA Better Sleep Guarantee: Consistent use is critical to success. While we don’t expect perfection, we do ask that you complete 70% of your 42 therapies within 8 weeks of receiving your product before receiving your refund.

A session is equivalent to 20 minutes. In addition, it is recommended that you increase the therapy intensity gradually over the treatment period to ensure that you give the treatment every chance of being effective. Please note that once the initial therapy is finished and to maintain the treatment you need to use the device at least twice a week forever.

The mouthpiece is a precision piece of engineering responsible for delivering neuromuscular electrical stimulation targeted primarily at the tongue. It needs to be replaced every 3 months.
