Comfortable Sleep Apnea Treatment

Genio treats your obstructive sleep apnea while you and your partner enjoy restful and comfortable nights.

Are You Looking for an Alternative to CPAP?

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a very common sleep breathing disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. It is associated with many comorbid diseases (especially cardiovascular diseases).

The first-line treatment for sleep apnea is continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP).

However, compliance with CPAP treatment is problematic, and many patients who struggle with CPAP are looking for another solution.

That's why Nyxoah created Genio: An innovative, mask-free, patient-centered treatment of obstructive sleep apnea that lets you enjoy restful nights and life to the fullest.

Discover Genio

Genio is a game changer for all those who can't tolerate CPAP therapy.

No need to sleep with a mask anymore!

Genio uses hypoglossal nerve stimulation (HGNS) to treat obstructive sleep apnea. It works by direct neurostimulation of the hypoglossal nerve during sleep. The stimulation activates the genioglossus muscle, causing the tongue to protrude forward and prevent it from blocking the airway.

Treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea with Neurostimulation

The effectiveness of hypoglossal nerve stimulation in treating obstructive sleep apnea has been scientifically proven in patients with moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea.

Neurostimulation is already helping hundreds of thousands of individuals worldwide treat their sleep apnea.

What Makes Genio Different?

The Genio system is the world’s first and only, battery-free, leadless and with a single incision implanted neurostimulator designed to keep the upper airway open during sleep for certain people with OSA by bilateral stimulation of the hypoglossal nerve.

Discreet Neurostimulator

Implantation of the Genio neurostimulator requires only a discreet incision under the chin and a short hospital stay.

Safe by Design

No batteries, sensors or leads inside the body. No surgery required to replace system components. No evidence of system parts under your skin.

MRI Compatible

Genio is compatible with full-body MRI scans.

Tailored to Your Needs

Because Genio's wearable is external, the system can be easily customized and upgraded, allowing you to benefit from the latest advances in stimulation and comfort without further surgery.
