AirAvant Medical Inc, a newly formed company created from the former partners of InnoMed Technologies Inc, launches the Bongo Rx. Bongo Rx is an FDA 510k cleared device for the treatment of mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
The Bongo Rx seals in the nose and works by creating back pressure when an OSA sufferer exhales. This is known as expiratory positive airway pressure or EPAP. It doesn’t require a power source or headgear. It is small enough to be carried in a shirt pocket.
“We recognize that people need to have the ability to sleep comfortably and safely, no matter where they are—in a bed, on a train, in a car, or even catching a quick nap in a chair,” says Javier Collazo, vice president of AirAvant Medical, in a release. “Bongo Rx is so small and so easy to use that those suffering from sleep apnea no longer have to worry about bulky, cumbersome equipment or conspicuous masks. This technologically-advanced device allows users to enjoy safe sleep while receiving OSA therapy.”
The Bongo Rx will be exhibiting at Medtrade (new product pavilion booth #1448) from Oct 15-17.
