The iNAP sleep therapy system is designed to provide a comfortable sleep experience for OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea) patients. During sleep, the iNAP system creates a gentle vacuum within the oral cavity by stabilizing the tongue and freeing the airway, thereby allowing for uninterrupted rest. Unlike traditional CPAP machines, the iNAP system works without a facial mask or a bulky machine and instead uses a discreet soft oral interface and a pocket-sized console. The system provides a simple and intuitive user interface with a built-in rechargeable battery and an easy-to-clean saliva container, making it a perfect travel companion.
