Nyxoah SA, a medical technology company focused on the development and commercialization of innovative solutions to treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), today announced that the DEKRA Notified Body has approved the use of Nyxoah’s next generation Genio® 2.1 system for patients in Europe. As with the recent approval of Genio® 2.1 by the U.S. FDA for use in the DREAM U.S. IDE pivotal study, this CE mark pertains entirely to the external components of the Genio® system and will be available to all patients who have received Genio® implants.
Genio® 2.1 is designed to improve patient comfort and compliance with a new smartphone application and upgraded external activation chip. Genio® 2.1 offers patients daily feedback on therapy usage and the autonomy to adjust stimulation amplitude within pre-defined boundaries. Physicians can fine-tune stimulation amplitude to determine the optimal level of comfort for patients without compromising therapy efficacy. Additional embedded sensors will allow physicians to further tailor therapy stimulation parameters based on patient position and throughout the night.
“Genio® 2.1 embodies the patient-centric design and the scalability of the Genio® platform with features that allow for greater customization of therapy to meet individual patient’s needs,” commented Olivier Taelman, Nyxoah’s Chief Executive Officer. “Importantly, these additional features are made available without the need for a surgical procedure to replace the implantable component. We are excited to launch Genio® 2.1 in Europe, strengthening our vision to address the needs of OSA patients with and without Complete Concentric Collapse (CCC) and further accelerating market share gains.”
