Simulation supports decision-making process

Better diagnoses of obstructive sleep apnea

Simq OSA

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

Simq is working with clinical partners to develop an application that supports the diagnosis of severe snoring and OSA and the selection of appropriate therapy. Efficient flow simulations of a patient-specific airway enable the localization of anatomical causes and support objective decision making for various therapeutic measures.
