9 different lengths allow for  1 mm
advancement of the mandible

 

Figure A

Each EMA elastic strap comes in 4
different strengths, indicated by color

 

Figure B

EMA elastic straps are 100% latex free.
The shorter the EMA elastic strap, the
farther the mandible is advanced

 

Figure C

*Myerson recommends a distance between the buttons of 27 mm in the centric position. If the patient’s range of mandibular advancement is limited to 9 mm or fewer a distance of 25 mm distance is recommended.

 

THE O2 OASYS

Oral/nasal airway system is the first system to address the resistance to breathing in the entire upper airway. It is FDA (k030440) approved as a nasal dialator and mandibular repositioner for the treatment of both nasal and pharyngeal restrictions that cause snoring and sleep apnea.

 

OASYS HINGE APPLIANCE

The OASYS Hinge Appliance is a FDA 510K Cleared Medical Device, and is approved

  • Telescope designed hinge does not come apart with full extension.
  • Advancement of 10mm, compared to current 5mm hinge.
  • Designed for intra-oral activation, compared to side-activation out of the mouth.
  • T-10 Hinge has etched mm marks on the hinge for identification of advancement, compared to other hinges.
  • Nylock coating in hinge chamber prevents screw from backing-off. Welded stop prevents screw from evacuating chamber.
  • OASYS Hinge can pair with OASYS Oral Nasal Airway System, to include Nasal Dilators and Lingual Tongue Lifters.

TAP APPLIANCES

TAP Sleep Care from Airway Management allows you to effectively treat the full spectrum of sleep-disordered breathing, so you can offer patients a holistic, more intelligent approach to well-being that can dramatically improve their quality of life.

The Thornton Adjustable Positioner® (TAP®) is a simple, patient-friendly treatment solution for snoring and sleep apnea. The TAP holds the lower jaw in a forward position so that it does not fall open during the night and cause the airway to collapse. It maintains a clear airway to reduce snoring and improve breathing.

The unique design allows the patient to fine-tune his/her treatment at home and work with the clinician to achieve the best results. Patients are empowered to manage the degree of lower jaw protrusion over as many nights as it takes to achieve the optimal treatment position. The TAP has a single point of central adjustment preventing an irregular bite and discomfort that may result from uneven bilateral adjustment.
