Clinical Study

Treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea with the Aura6000® System

The aura6000® system is a device that helps open the airway while a person sleeps to prevent obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Research is needed to see if it is safe and effective to reduce OSA. This information will help determine if this device may be used to improve the care and quality of life for people with OSA.
