docq OSA

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a life-threatening and life-shortening disorder that affects more than 900 million adults worldwide.

CADFEM Medical, together with Lars Bonitz, M.Sc., Ph.D., and partners, is addressing this issue by developing an application that supports the diagnosis of severe snoring and OSA and the selection of an appropriate therapy. Efficient flow simulations of a patient-specific airway enable the identification of local anatomical causes and help in the evaluation of different therapeutic measures.
