EMA devices help promote a deeper, more restful sleep by preventing snoring and relieving the symptoms of OSA. The EMA does not interfere with breathing through the mouth, even in cases of congested nasal passages.

The 36 different straps allow for the most effective repositioning of the jaw with maximum comfort.
