SomnoMed Announces World’s First Technology-Enabled Oral Appliance


SomnoMed Limited (ASX “SOM”, or the Company), a leading company in the oral appliance treatment solution for sleep-related breathing disorders and obstructive sleep apnea (“OSA”), is pleased to announce the introduction of the world’s first technology-enabled oral appliance*. 

While reviewing our strategy following the World Sleep Meeting in 2019 and during the early parts of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, SomnoMed embarked on a development program to address a key limitation of oral appliance therapy – a lack of objective data. 

A large, internally commissioned medical research report highlighted this lack of objective data as a key barrier to prescribing oral appliances. In response, SomnoMed has set out to deliver a technology solution to the world of oral appliances that will provide this data that has only been available with CPAP devices to date. 

SomnoMed’s aim is to ensure that all treatment stakeholders, including patients, can access overnight data on oral appliance treatment effectiveness. To achieve this, the connected technology will deliver data on both efficacy and compliance, which together determine clinical effectiveness. This collection of powerful, personalized patient data in oral appliance therapy will inform physicians and dentists, every night, about treatment effectiveness for each of their individual patients. 

“SomnoMed is extremely proud to bring to the sleep industry true technology that matters to patients and all treatment stakeholders,” commented SomnoMed’s Managing Director, Mr. Neil Verdal-Austin. “This will empower patients to manage their own OSA treatment with a technology-enabled oral appliance providing measures of both efficacy and compliance. Whilst such data availability is standard for CPAP, having personalized treatment data, shared confidentially between clinicians and patients, is truly a world first for oral appliances,” noted Mr. Verdal-Austin. 

Further details on the completion of the clinical trial, final steps in the validation process (supplier selection, software validation, docking station functionality), regulatory submissions and likely timing of commercial readiness will be announced on 22nd February 2022 when the Company’s half yearly results will be released.
