A few things need to happen between surgery and the activation of the Genio® system. First, your body needs to heal and recover from the surgical intervention. After six to eight weeks, the healing period has finished and you will receive personal assistance to show you how your Genio® system works and first activate the system.
In the personal training sessions, you will experience the feeling of the stimulation of your tongue muscle nerves for the first time. The feeling and sensation of this specific tongue movement might take a while to become accustomed to. Also, sensitivity and intensity of this new experience can vary between people.
During these personal sessions, you will need at least two sleep studies to benchmark and adjust the settings of your Genio® system. After this, you can be given the green light to start using your Genio® Activation Chip. Your doctor may need to schedule additional sleep studies to monitor and optimize your Genio® therapy settings.
