Inspire® Therapy for Obstructive Sleep Apnea

You are here:

Inspire therapy is a mask-free solution for people with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) who have tried and struggled with CPAP. Through a simple-to-use system including the Inspire® implant, remote and app, Inspire therapy enables you to control your OSA treatment from the palm of your hand.

How Inspire® Therapy Works

Inspire therapy is the only FDA-approved obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) therapy that works comfortably inside your body.

The small Inspire® implant delivers gentle pulses to your airway muscles to keep your airway open so you can breathe regularly and sleep soundly.

  • When we sleep, our airway muscles and tongue relax. For people with OSA, the tongue relaxes into a position that blocks the airway.
  • When your airway is blocked you get less oxygen to your brain, triggering you to wake up to take a breath. This cycle happens repeatedly, preventing quality sleep.
  • The Inspire implant delivers gentle pulses that move your tongue out of the way each time you take a breath, keeping your airway open while you sleep soundly. No mask or hose required.
