Genio® sleep apnea treatment
Breathe freely

Genio® is as disruptive as it is elegant and simple. OSA is caused by the abnormal relaxation of the tongue and throat muscles.  The hypoglossal nerve controls the tongue and airway muscles. By stimulating the hypoglossal nerve, the Genio® solution maintains the upper airway open throughout the night.

Do you have sleep apnea?

Common symptoms of Obstructive Sleep Apnea*

OSA is the world’s most common sleep disordered breathing condition, affecting globally around 936 million people between 30 and 69 years of age, of which 425 million people suffer from moderate to severe OSA requiring treatment*.


Your partner complains
about your snoring

The first and most common sign of sleep apnea is usually noticed by your partner: snoring. Your bed partner can also notice that you stop breathing for a moment, before gasping for air.

You wake up

Patients with OSA can stop breathing more than 30 times per hour during the night. This triggers regular micro arousals and can leave you feeling exhausted in your daily life.

You feel sleepy
during the day

Besides feeling unrefreshed in the morning, other symptoms can be:

  • Sleepiness during the day
  • Constant fatigue
  • Elevated daytime irritability
  • Lack of concentration and energy
  • Weight gain
  • Feeling depressed
  • Sexual dysfunction

*These symptoms are not always reflective of obstructive sleep apnea. Talk to your physician in order to conduct the proper diagnosis.
