TechCrunch reports on an oral appliance by a Seoul-based dentist that is seeking US Food and Drug Administration approval.

When Seungkyu Lee, a Seoul-based dentist, realized how much sleep apnea decimated the quality of life for his patients, he began working on an alternative oral appliance called the QT33 and then spent the next 10 years tinkering with it until its hardware was as small as possible. Now Lee’s startup domobio, which recently completed SparkLabs’ accelerator program, is seeking Food and Drug Administration approval and distributors in the U.S. for the device. QT33 is already available at 200 clinics in Canada under the name SNR.X.
