When oral device therapy was introduced in the market, it provided a ground-breaking new solution for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. The one critical aspect lacking, however, was the fact that there was no way to track if a patient was using the prescribed oral device, making it difficult for physicians to recommend this course of treatment. CPAP remained the ”gold standard” treatment option, simply because it provided a way to easily monitor a patient’s compliance to therapy.
SomnoMed sought to provide a solution to that problem. If oral device therapy was to be more widely accepted as an equal to CPAP from a compliance perspective, compliance recording would have to be included in the oral device. The history of innovation caused our physicians and scientists to work consistently to develop SomnoDent with Compliance Recorder, creating the first and only oral device to feature FDA cleared advanced compliance recording in the USA.
This modernization of oral device treatment drastically changes the way oral device therapy is viewed in comparison to CPAP. The ability to objectively measure patient compliance is an important feature for COAT (Continuous Open Airway Therapy) when compared to other treatment options. As more and more physicians and insurance payers require objective evidence that patients are actually using the treatment – as opposed to self-reported data – SomnoDent with Compliance Recorder provides the exact solution.
Objective measurement with SomnoDent with Compliance Recorder is provided by DentiTrac(tm), a unique micro-recorder chip manufactured by Braebon Medical Corporation. DentiTrac uses patented technology and sophisticated anti-deception algorithms to determine when a patient is wearing their device, with results that can be transmitted to a HIPAA secure cloud portal for remote access by physicians.
Whether you are a patient needing to reliably track your compliance with an oral device, a physician looking for an alternative for CPAP-intolerant patients, or a dentist needing a solution for patients who are transportation workers, SomnoDent with Compliance Recorder offers you the solution you’re looking for.
