MAD-FITTM is a major scientific breakthrough in Sleep Apnea treatment
It is a predictive algorithm that determines the ideal and most comfortable jaw position for an oral appliance designed for effective airway management of OSA in a single patient visit. We named the algorithm "MAD-FITTM" to provide the perfect fit and position for a Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD) from the very first use. Our method uses advanced analytics and clinically relevant data to engineer the three-dimensional positioning of the jaw for an oral appliance. A patient’s breathing is improved from the very first time they wear a MAD-FITTM titrated appliance.

How it works

1

Multidimensional analysis of thousands of data-points from comprehensive clinical, radiologic, and polysomnographic evaluation of the patients resulted in the engineering of the MAD-FITTM predictive algorithm.

2

It allows the dentist to determine the optimal titration point, bypassing the highly subjective and unscientific trial and error titration method.

3

This prevents the tongue from falling back and blocking the throat and distracts it away from the roof of the mouth to achieve maximum effective passive breathing, thereby reducing the sleep apnea index.
