Oscimed is a Swiss manufacturer of solutions for snoring, sleep apnea and bruxism.
20% of the population is affected by snoring and 4% by sleep apnea. Men are predominantly affected but women are also troubled by such problems. We spend a considerable part of our life sleeping, thus, it is essential that our sleep does not get interrupted by any physical impacts.
Oscimed is committed to provide the best solutions in this field. We use our engineering knowledge as well as our relations to renowned specialists in the field of sleep medicine in order to develop the best anti-snoring and sleep apnea products.
For mild to moderate sleep apnea, we have developed mandibular advancement devices such as Somnofit and Somnolis.
In some cases, positional therapy using the Posiform cushion provides convincing results.
The most efficient treatment for severe sleep apnea is the nasal ventilation through a continuous positive airway pressure device (CPAP).
