Sleep apnea treatment SICAT Air

The first 3D solution for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) therapy

SICAT Air is the first 3D solution to allow not only the analysis of the upper airway but also visualization and planning of the appliance-based treatment true to anatomy. The combination of the patient's 3D x-ray and optical surface data allow for a completely digital workfow.

Analysis, treatment planning and the order of a SICAT OPTISLEEP appliance can be done in one single patient session.

Your benefits at a glance

The first 3D solution for obstructive sleep apnea therapy

  • Direct visualization of constrictions
