eXcite OSA is a removable tongue muscle stimulation device which delivers neurostimulation to the tongue to improve mild sleep apnea and snoring in adult patients. The enhancement of muscle function prevents the airway from collapsing and keeps the airway open while sleeping. Patients use the device for 20 minutes each day for 6 weeks and only two times per week thereafter. This device is developed by Signifier Medical Technologies and has been clinically tested with 90% of patients reporting less snoring time and 79% of sleep apnea patients demonstrating decreased apneas.
This treatment is not recommended for sleep apnea patients with an AHI ≥ 15, or with a pacemaker, implanted electrodes, metal implants, dental braces/prothesis or for patients suffering from mouth ulcers or pregnant.
