“Ms Yatskiv and her team, Discovery Sleep, are a natural fit to expand the TAP Systems’ reach and continue to grow as a leader in the oral appliance industry. The oral appliance business is expected to vastly increase as the world’s population ages, gains weight, and becomes aware of effective, alternative therapies to CPAP. We are proud to be able to use our proven expertise and experience in the medical device industry and our new partnership with Discovery Sleep to bring these options to the Asian Population.” says Charles Collins, COO of Airway Management, in a release.

Milana Yatskiv, founder of Discovery Sleep, says, “In Asia, many people in the past associate snoring with sound sleep, not realizing that they can be at risk for serious health problems, such as obstructive sleep apnea. With the rise of more educated demographics, we see a growing demand for health technology, including sleep technology. We are excited to partner with Airway Management to introduce its suite of cost-effective, clinically effective, and time-effective sleep technology for the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea.”
