Oral appliance manufacturer Airway Management announced that myTAP is now available through Sleep Doctor, an online sleep wellness company. 

This partnership is to help consumers experiencing snoring or sleep apnea or who may be CPAP non-compliant.

Developed for patients seeking immediate oral appliance therapy, myTAP was proven as effective as customTAP in a 2022 study. It holds FDA clearance for treating snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), providing a convenient, cost-effective, and accessible solution for individuals seeking same-day treatment, according to a release from the company.

Sleep Doctor provides virtual consultations with doctors, at-home sleep testing, and treatment choices.

“We are thrilled to announce that Sleep Doctor is joining forces with Airway Management in a strategic partnership that will amplify our strengths in the sleep world,” according to a release from the company. “Together, we embark on a journey to redefine industry standards and deliver unparalleled value to our patient care. This collaboration represents a powerful synergy, combining the expertise of two industries whose goal is to focus on better sleep.”

One of myTAP’s distinguishing features is its quick and easy fitting process, taking as little as 15 minutes. The tray technology of myTAP allows for reheating and refitting as needed, offering a personalized and adaptable solution for users.

Starting March 1, UnitedHealthcare will implement its new obstructive and central sleep apnea medical policy. The updated policy now requires oral appliance therapy as a necessary step before considering surgical treatment, such as Inspire, for adult patients diagnosed with moderate to severe OSA.
