New Implant Device for OSA in Trials FYI
Just an FYI, a new implant, not Inspire, for OSA in the news.

RE: New Implant Device for OSA in Trials FYI
The site seems a bit light on for meaningful data, study results etc. I like the concept for those who can't tolerate CPAP, and wearing that battery button on your throat would certainly inhibit chin-tucking.

However, like many similar devices, this one promises a 50% reduction in AHI. But if you start out with an AHI in the 40+ range (as so many of us do) then the device alone will not bring you back to a clinically "treated" condition of AHI < 5.0. You may still need CPAP after all.

I notice Cochlear are a major equity partner, so that brings a great deal of professional respectability to the company.
