BALA CYNWYD, Pa. – Sleep Specialists’ Zzoma Positional Device was used in a study researching cost effectiveness of positional therapy to help treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), the medical device company announced yesterday. Conducted by Temple University of Philadelphia, the study found that of the 24% of the patients who had positional OSA therapy and used the Zzoma Positional Device, the result was a cost savings of 21%, compared to if all patients were treated with CPAP therapy. “The new study only solidified what we already knew: incorporating positional devices into sleep apnea treatment algorithms are highly cost effective,” said Sila Yesilsoy, COO of Sleep Specialists in a release.
