The Science

Combining two established concepts has led to a revolutionary daytime therapy

Two independently proven concepts:

  1. Training your tongue and upper airway muscles can lead to a reduction in sleep apnea and snoring, e.g. Jordan et al., 2006.
  2. Nuhr MJ, Pette D, Berger R, Quittan M, Crevenna R, Huelsman M, Wiesinger GF, Moser P, Fialka-Moser V, Pacher R. Beneficial effects of chronic low-frequency stimulation of thigh muscles in patients with advanced chronic heart failure. 2004;25:136-43.

Combining the two research areas introduces a new approach to sleep disturbance: NMES applied to the tongue as a patient friendly daytime therapy helping solve a root problem of sleep apnea and snoring.
