There are more than 150 FDA-cleared appliances for the treatment of OSA. Who needs another one, right?
Chris Gillette spent the afternoon with the ZZZ PACK sharing how his decades of experience as a sleep technician led him to realize the many benefits of Oral Appliance Therapy while also identifying many of the design flaws.
This compelled him to develop, patent, and produce a new device – Bfit. What is it? How does it work? How is it different from the myriad other available devices? And most importantly, did it pass ZZZ host, Lisa Moler’s litmus test?
And what the heck does “clench and replace” mean?
Join Chris in the hot seat as he talks bruxing, auto-titrating devices, and tons more. Why are you reading this? Listen now...
