eXciteOSA®: non-invasive intraoral neuromuscular stimulation device with clinically proven reduction of primary snoring and mild obstructive sleep apnoea1-3
You can offer patients a clinically proven therapy that targets the root cause of snoring and mild sleep apnoea.
eXciteOSA® challenges the wisdom of conventional snoring solutions. It is a daytime treatment for sleep-disordered breathing that uses NMES – to physiologically re-train the airway against collapse.
Now patients can benefit from this convenient and effective therapy so that they and their partners can get a better night’s sleep.
Improve patients’ quality of life, sleep, and relationships.
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 snoring therapies, eXciteOSA® strengthens tongue and throat muscle tone, to prevent excessive muscle relaxation during sleep, reducing airway collapse.
A daytime therapy with no night-time wearable necessary for a better night’s sleep.
eXciteOSA® has been clinically proven to improve the quality of sleep by reducing snoring and sleep apnoea significantly, when used for 20 minutes, once a day for 6 weeks 1-3

I have been involved with the eXciteOSA® device and have been doing ongoing research on this treatment. I am optimistic that this treatment will be an important treatment approach for patients with snoring and with mild sleep apnea.”

eXciteOSA® has given me the additional treatment option I have been looking for to achieve complete success. eXciteOSA®, a 20 min daytime treatment primarily for snoring and mild OSA, has the potential to increase the efficiency of a Mandibular Advancement Device.
