MPowrx™ Clinical Data:
A randomized controlled crossover study was published in the Journal of Sleep and Breathing (Sleep Breath and Breathing- Dort L, Brant R. 2008 Nov;12(4):369-73). It is the first study of its kind to be conducted among Tongue Stabilization Devices and provides evidence that supports the use of MPowrx™ Snoring Solution (iSleepSound™) to treat snoring and OSA.
A recent peer reviewed publication in the Journal of Clinical Sleep medicine by two leading industry researchers (Clin. Sleep Medicine- Dort L, Remmers J. 2012) shows evidence to support the treatment of moderate to severe sleep apnea using MPowrx™ Snoring Solution (iSleepSound™) in combination with a mandibular displacement device.
