eXciteOSA® is the first daytime therapy proven to strengthen weak tongue muscles known to be the root cause of sleep apnoea and snoring
When we sleep our tongue and throat muscles are known to relax and cause snoring.
In some people, these over relaxed muscles cause the tongue to fall back in the mouth, partially blocking the airway and resulting in snoring. Snoring deprives the body of quality sleep and can also create problems in relationships, such as sleeping in separate rooms.
Loud snoring often indicates the first stages of a serious medical condition called sleep apnoea.
Sleep apnoea causes the sleeper to stop and start breathing during sleep, often jolting them awake. Night after night of this, interrupted sleep can have a big impact on quality of life and health. In particular, there is a strong clinically proven link between sleep apnoea and comorbidities like diabetes, hypertension and strokes.1-9
Now there is a new way to target the root cause of snoring and mild sleep apnoea.
eXciteOSA® is a daytime therapy that uniquely targets the root cause of snoring and mild sleep apnoea by using safe electrical currents to stimulate and improve muscle function in the mouth and tongue.
So that you regain good quality sleep and a healthier life.
The strengthened tongue muscle no longer blocks the airway at night, allowing for a restful night’s sleep. The body can rest, recharge and repair itself. You wake up bright, refreshed and ready to face the day.
eXciteOSA® – The only clinically proven daytime solution to treat snoring and mild sleep apnoea10-12
Comfortable, one size fits all silicone mouthpiece precisely delivers safe electrical currents to the tongue muscle.
The rechargeable control unit attaches to the mouthpiece via a USB connection and is driven by the eXciteOSA® App for maximum freedom during use.
Follow and control your therapy, track changes in your snoring.

Clinically proven to
significantly reduce snoring
and mild sleep apnoea 1-3
“Treatment of sleep apnoea can be highly effective for some patients as it has been shown to improve symptoms, reduce blood pressure, reduce the risk of motor vehicle accidents, among other benefits. A strong argument can be made that early treatment may be beneficial since the consequences of disease may become irreversible if the disease is longstanding. Thus, treatment of patients with mild OSA and/or at young ages may be a useful strategy.
I have been involved with the eXciteOSA® device and have been doing ongoing research on this treatment. I am optimistic that this treatment will be an important treatment approach for patients with snoring and with mild sleep apnoea.”

“My practice is limited to treating patients with sleep disorders such as snoring, obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) and sleep bruxism. The tongue is often the reason I struggle to provide a total resolution of symptoms with a Mandibular Advancement Device for my patients who are snorers and apnoeacs, mild to severe. This is a result of the multifactorial nature of the disease.
eXciteOSA® has given me the additional treatment option I have been looking for to achieve complete success. eXciteOSA®, a 20 min daytime treatment primarily for snoring and mild OSA, has the potential to increase the efficiency of a Mandibular Advancement Device. The technology is sophisticated and I can see this being easily accepted by snorers and mild apnoea patients who may want to give themselves an occasional break from using a device at night as the lasting effect of the treatment can reduce snoring and daytime symptoms (daytime sleepiness, fatigue, irritability). In mild cases it may be the ultimate treatment option without the need for any further intervention.”

- Clinical study of 115 patients with snoring or mild OSA (Apnea- Hypopnea Index (AHI) <15 n=65) completed the trial. Objective snoring and respiratory parameters were recorded with 2 consecutive WatchPat night sleep studies before and after the use of the device. An intra-oral tongue stimulator device was used for 20mins, once a day for 6-week period. (Internal publication by SMT for educational purposes and submission.)
