Oral Pressure Therapy (OPT) is a treatment for obstructive sleep apnea that uses vacuum pressure to suction the soft palate towards the middle of the mouth with the objective of widening the nasal airway reducing or eliminating airway obstruction.
Winx® Sleep Therapy System is a new sleep apnea treatment device that uses this method for treatment of sleep apnea. It offers a machine-based CPAP alternative. It does not require a mask over the nose and/or mouth. It does not require a strap around the head. It does require that a tube and mouthpiece be placed inside of the mouth during sleep.
