For those with obstructive sleep apnea, the “electric stimulation of nerves and muscles” induces muscular contractions by transmitting electric current through surrounding nerves. The Airflow Helper stops the apnea for OSA patients and monitors them while they are sleeping. It takes away the worries of caregivers and is easy to use and carry for better quality of life for users and their families.
