The Soft Palate Stent is clinically tested for treatment of patients with sleep-disordered breathing and/or mild obstructive sleep apnea. It provides numerous advantages in handling and convenience over a CPAP machine.

The Soft Palate Stent creates a continuous air passage that enables unobstructed breathing and thereby eliminates sleep apnea. The stent is installed by the patient and can be used 18 hours a day. The stent is a smooth tubular braid made from a memory-shaped nitinol metal. The braid is compressed with a thin application tube before installation. The tube is slowly introduced through one nasal passage into the throat. When released from the tube, the nitinol braid self expands and splints open the soft palate. Thereby, the stent prevents the collapse of the airway.
