myTAPTM – the perfect first step in treating snoring and sleep apnea

myTAPTM – the diagnostic testing appliance:

immediate, simple, affordable, continuously variable, perfect fit

 

Immediate fitting
Individual fitting in the practice takes just 15 minutes.

Simple application
Just soak the two splints shortly in hot water, fit them and adjust protusion -  that’s it.

Sophisticated construction
Both splints and adjustment mechanism are delicate and light. No metal parts, no allergenic potential, no disturbing components in the tongue cavity.

Continuously variable myTAPTM allows complete lateral mobility and a range of advancement of 20 mm.

  • The myTAPTM concept

    myTAPTM is a simple and comfortable treatment for snoring and sleep apnea. Construction and design are based on the TAP® splint, the market leader in oral anti-snoring appliances, having been tested in more than 32 independent peer reviewed studies on its clinical efficiency.
    The myTAPTM material has been specially developed for this application and can be softened in hot water. The correct temperature for adaptation in the mouth is reached when the color changes from white to transparent. If necessary, the appliance can be reheated and refitted without any problem after some days of trial wearing.

  • How myTAPTM works?

    The myTAPTM splint maintains the lower jaw in a stable forward position, preventing the soft tissue in the palate and tongue cavity from narrowing the airway in the throat. Snoring and sleep apnea can be stopped.
    By means of the threaded adjustment mechanism, the clinician can adjust the optimal forward position of the lower jaw, usually being about 60% of the maximal advancement. This position can be continuously varied at any time if necessary.

  • Is myTAPTM suited for a long term treatment?

    In case control appointments clearly show that myTAPTM considerably reduced or even completely stopped snoring and sleep apnea, we recommend to prescribe an individually adjusted TAP® splint in cooperation with a sleep laboratory. myTAPTM completely consists of plastic elements, risking to lose their strength and function after a long term use in the mouth due to water absorption and mechanical forces.
