EMA®

The most economical of Drake’s sleep appliances, the EMA® (Elastic Mandibular Advancement) appliance is recommended for mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea and in cases where CPAP therapy is not well-tolerated. This sleep appliance allows for improved jaw positioning with various resistance elastic bands and maintains an open airway by holding the lower jaw in a forward position. The EMA® relies upon nine elastic straps of varying lengths designed to systematically pull the mandible forward, with four different strengths of elastic straps matching the degree of muscle pull of the patient. FDA-cleared for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea, the EMA® oral appliance offers better quality sleep and improved patient health.
