What is MagNap?
Implanted Rare Earth Magnets Keep Airway Open at Night
MagNap uses the force of two rare earth magnets to keep your airway open and relieve obstructive sleep apnea. It is accomplished without the difficult and often annoying consequences of using a CPAP machine. This clinical trial will implant one magnet in your neck and attach another to a small neck brace and uses simple magnetic force to prevent the collapsed airway associated with obstructive sleep apnea.
