This month, SomnoMed announced that its subsidiary SomnoMed Canada Inc. acquired the business of Strong Dental in Leamington, Ontario, Canada. The acquisition covers all tangible and intangible assets of Strong Dental, an exclusive license to all patents linked to devices made by Strong Dental for the treatment of sleep disordered breathing and the employment of key staff. The owner, Mr. Patrick Strong (pictured, right), has entered into a consultancy agreement and he will be responsible for overseeing the day to day operations of SomnoMed Canada Inc.
Patrick Strong is the inventor of the SUAD device, which is manufactured by Strong Dental and distributed by it in the United States and Canada.

“The acquisition of Strong Dental in Canada will not only add a highly reputable device to our line of SomnoDent oral devices, which we can offer globally, but it will also give SomnoMed its own service and logistic hub, which is a precondition for selling our SomnoDent® products directly in Canada,” said Dr. Peter Neustadt, Executive Chairman of SomnoMed. “By establishing SomnoMed in Canada, our customers will soon be able to order SomnoDent and SUAD devices from our Leamington, Canada location and benefit from streamlined shipping and a reduction in inter-country shipping fees. As COATä treatment is becoming an increasingly accepted medical treatment for obstructive sleep apnea, it is important for companies offer a broad line of products to fit specific patient types. The SUAD device is a very reputable product and suits a certain group of patients,” said Dr. Kien Nguyen, President, SomnoMed, Inc.
