US-based home sleep testing (HST) services provider Ez Sleep has collaborated with Airway Management to offer the myTAP device to its clients.
Designed based on TAP Custom, Airway Management’s myTAP is an oral appliance that features precision-fit trays to allow comfortable and low-profile fit on the teeth.
The trays are made from a type of plastic that softens on heating and moulds precisely to the teeth.
The device takes less than 15 minutes for fitting, enabling same-day treatment and immediate relief.
After completion of each Ez Sleep in-home efficacy test, Ez Sleep will offer a free trial of the oral device through its Love at first Bite programme.
The indication for the oral appliance therapy can be established quickly at a very low cost.
EzSleep chief innovation officer Elizabeth Tietjen said: "The myTAP can be delivered to patients at a key inflection point upon reviewing the sleep study results.
“With its precision fitting in 15 minutes, comfort and durability, it is a great tool for dentists to take immediate action to start therapy."
The pre-fabricated, chair-side mandibular device demonstrated efficacy in prior peer-reviewed studies.
EzSleep In-Home Testing chief executive officer Keith Woods said: "We believe myTAP is the right product at the right time, and every dentist doing sleep medicine should have it in their toolkit.”
