Removeable oral appliance with wireless conductive electrodes and a microprocessor that collects brain wave activities through the upper jaw soft tissue.
The appliance is stabilized over the dentition of the upper jaw and may be used in a variety of applications such as sleep medicine, athletics and personal recreation
TONGUE STIMULATOR WITH MICROPROCESSOR
Prototype for a non-invasive intra-oral device to stimulate the tongue muscle during episodes of obstructive sleep apnea when the tongue is relaxed and may shift to obstruct the airway in the back of the throat (commercial version will be wireless, sealed, and self-contained within the body of the oral appliance)
The mild and short stimulation enables the tongue to contract and shift away from an obstructed airway
The accompanying biosensors detect physiological changes moments before obstructive apnea occurs and initiate the stimulation of the genioglossus (tongue) muscle to mitigate closure of the airway
