Oventus Medical Ltd
Oventus Medical Ltd (ASX:OVN) is a Brisbane based medical device company that is commercialising a suite of oral appliances for the treatment of sleep apnoea and snoring. Unlike other oral appliances, the Oventus devices have a unique and patented airway within the device that delivers air to the back of the mouth bypassing multiple obstructions from the nose, soft palate and tongue. They are particularly designed for the many people that have nasal obstructions and consequently tend to mainly breathe through their mouth. While it may seem counterintuitive, the device actually prevents oral breathing. The O2Vent is designed to allow nasal breathing when the nose is unobstructed, but when obstruction is present, breathing is supplemented via the airways in the appliance.
A clinical study completed earlier this year showed the company's first generation product the O2Vent Mono(TM) is successful in treating OSA and that snoring was either eliminated or significantly reduced to 100 per cent of patients. The positive results included those people who had nasal obstructions and mainly breathed through their mouths, including when they were asleep. It also improves oxygen levels for patients.
According to a report published by the Sleep Health Foundation Australia, an estimated 1.5 million Australians suffer with sleep disorders and more than half of these suffer with obstructive sleep apnoea.
Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the most definitive medical therapy for obstructive sleep apnoea, OSA, however many patients have difficulty tolerating CPAP. Oral appliances have emerged as an alternative to CPAP for obstructive sleep apnoea treatment.
Oventus Medical Ltd (ASX:OVN) is pleased to announce it has entered into a manufacturing agreement with Hong Kong based Modern Dental Group. Modern Dental have extensive expertise in the manufacture of dental appliances and hold the required quality management certifications for medical device manufacture.
The daily commute from Geelong to Melbourne just got a little more perilous with a new study warning one fifth of Australian adults have fallen asleep while driving. Research from the Sleep Health Foundation also shows nearly a third of Australians drive while drowsy at least once a month. They're figures Geelong dentist Dr Joseph Juric said are only scratching the surface.
Treatment for sleep apnoea usually involves either a mask or a mouthguard. A new Australian invention combines the best elements of both. Brisbane dentist Chris Hart spent years struggling to sleep. He snored constantly. He often woke up during the night because he had stopped breathing because of a n obstruction in his nose and throat.
