Title (EN) DEVICE AND METHOD FOR OPENING AN AIRWAY
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCÉDÉ D'OUVERTURE DES VOIES RESPIRATOIRES
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention provides devices and methods for creating and/or maintaining patency of the upper airway passage. The device is configured to fit under the chin of a subject at an external location corresponding approximately with the subject's internal soft tissue associated with the neck's anterior triangle. The device includes structural elements designed to optimize comfort, compliance and seal achieved through minimizing the pressure variation along the contact surface of the therapy device.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des dispositifs et des procédés pour créer et/ou maintenir la perméabilité du passage des voies respiratoires supérieures. Le dispositif est conçu pour s'ajuster sous le menton d'un sujet à un emplacement externe correspondant approximativement au tissu mou interne du sujet associé au triangle antérieur du cou. Le dispositif comprend des éléments structuraux conçus pour optimiser le confort, la compliance et l'étanchéité obtenus par réduction au minimum de la variation de pression le long de la surface de contact du dispositif de thérapie.
