Freedom to Sleep: No Mask, No Hose
THN Sleep Therapy consists of an innovative, CPAP-alternative, fully implantable device called the aura6000™, which treats obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) by delivering mild stimulation to the tongue during sleep, hence significantly reducing or eliminating sleep apnea events. The aura6000™ system is totally implanted, which means that there are no masks, hoses, mouthpieces or anything else connected to the patient during sleep.
A THN system looks and operates much like a cardiac pacemaker— except that instead of sending pulses to the heart, it sends mild pulses to the hypoglossal nerve in the neck. In fact, the aura6000™ acts like a "pacemaker for the tongue" with the objective of keeping the airway open throughout the night.
