Sleep Specialists, LLC Announces Exclusive Distributor for the Zzoma Sleep Apnea Device in Australia

BALA CYNWYD, Pa., Apr. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

-- Sydney-Based Healthy Sleep Solutions Will Supply Patients Suffering from Positional Obstructive Sleep Apnea (pOSA) with the Zzoma Device

Sleep Specialists, LLC, a medical device company specializing in sleep therapy, announced today that it has formed an exclusive distribution alliance with Healthy Sleep Solutions (HSS), Australia's largest facilitator of sleep diagnostic, treatment, and patient management services and provider of end-to-end sleep apnea solutions. HSS will be the exclusive supplier of the Zzoma Positional Device in Australia and New Zealand.

"Studies show that one in twenty Australian adults suffer from moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea, but that as much as 80% of sleep apnea sufferers remain undiagnosed," says Stephen Newton, Director of Clinical Affairs and Primary Care at Healthy Sleep Solutions. "We strive daily to help these patients by increasing awareness of sleep apnea and providing greater access to treatment options. We have found the Zzoma to have high efficacy in providing relief to patients battling positional sleep apnea and are excited to add it to our treatment line."

The Zzoma is a medical device indicated for the treatment of positional sleep apnea by preventing supine or "on-the-back" sleeping. Positional Obstructive Sleep Apnea (pOSA) is a condition in which a person, while in supine position, stops breathing for short periods of time due to the narrowing or collapsing of the upper airway. Sleep Specialists, LLC obtained the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods listing (Therapeutic Good Administration approval) late last year.

"Healthy Sleep Solutions is a proven worldwide leader in sleep apnea," says Sila Yesilsoy, COO of Sleep Specialists, LLC. "HSS shares our vision of helping OSA patients manage their condition. We look forward to the coming year as partners in Australia."

HSS will begin offering the Zzoma device immediately.
