WhisperSom™ is the first to patent1, develop, and test a sleep apnea treatment device that does not require anything on the face, in the mouth or nose, no surgical implants, and no electric shocks.2
Many sleep apnea patients experience obstructive and central apneas. Our WhisperSom device will be designed to treat both obstructive and central apneic events with personalized precision acoustic neuromodulation signals, and only when these events occur. These signals will be soft as a whisper lasting merely a fraction of a second in length and quieter than a TV or sleep sound machine.
No other FDA-authorized device treats both types of apneic events without requiring a full-face mask, air hose, and ventilator—making our WhisperSom device truly innovative.
R&D testing has shown our treatment to restore natural breathing instantly and prevent heart rate spikes, harmful oxyhemoglobin desaturation, and arousals from apneas that disrupt sleep.
Each sleep session is automatically scored with the device’s biosensor data recorded for visual playback. This polysomnography sleep lab study-type video recording can be easily uploaded from the device and played back, displaying a visual audit trail and the evidence underlying WhisperSom’s automated scoring and effectiveness of treatment.
We have invested over five years of research and development – conducting over 125 nights of in-home testing with over 30 volunteers to produce a promising data set comprised of 2,436 apneas.
Our current device is ready for clinical trials and fast-track FDA De Novo approval, as well as Medicare and Medicaid insurance reimbursement pending medical breakthrough device designation.
WhisperSom is funded by patients and physicians and is governed by experienced healthcare industry executives determined to bridge the healthcare equity gap, and at least double the current 10% diagnosis and 5% treatment rates of sleep apnea within 5 years following FDA approval of its first treatment device.
Join us in our mission to change this condition for yourself, loved ones, and millions of others around the globe.
