About Inspire

What is the Inspire® implant?

For patients who struggle with CPAP, Inspire is a long-term low-maintenance solution to treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) that doesn’t require a mask or hose.

How Inspire works

Inspire is an alternative to CPAP that works inside your body while you sleep. When you’re ready for bed, simply click the remote to turn Inspire on. While you sleep, Inspire opens your airway, allowing you to breathe regularly and sleep peacefully.

Qualifications for Inspire

You may qualify for Inspire if you meet the following FDA criteria*:

  • You are age 18 or above
  • You have been diagnosed with moderate to severe OSA
  • You are unable to use or get consistent benefit from your CPAP therapy

*To be eligible of insurance coverage, you typically need a BMI (body mass index) below 35. Talk to your doctor about any concerns you may have regarding your BMI, and how they may be able to help.
