Nyxoah announces full-body MRI compatibility for the Genio® system to treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)

January 26, 2021

Utecht (The Netherlands) – Nyxoah SA (Euronext: NYXH) (“Nyxoah” or the “Company”), a health-technology company focused on the development and commercialization of innovative solutions and services to treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), today announces the Company has received CE Mark Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) conditional labeling for the current Genio® neurostimulation-based OSA therapy to treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

This revised labeling ensures that patients who receive the Genio® system and those already implanted can now undergo full-body 1.5T and 3T MRI diagnostic scans within approved parameters and access the benefits of Genio® unique bilateral stimulation therapy.

Olivier Taelman, Chief Executive Officer of Nyxoah, commented: “We are delighted to announce full-body 1.5T and 3T MR conditional CE mark approval for the Genio® system, resulting from the unique and unparalleled design of our technology. Such an extensive labeling is unique to Nyxoah in the field of neurostimulation-based OSA therapies. Currently, other therapies cannot fully address this need due to limitations to 1.5T MRI scans and body areas exclusion. As a company, Nyxoah always puts the patient first and seeks to ensure minimal disruption of their daily life and optimal Quality of Life.”

Prof. Dr. Clemens Heiser, MD, MHBA, PhD, ENT surgeon from Klinikum Rechts der Isar – Munich added: “Prevalence of MRI scans as diagnostic modality is growing, especially for OSA patients, as this condition is being associated with increased risk of comorbidities, such as cardiovascular diseases. The addition of 1.5T and 3T full-body MR conditional labeling for the Genio® system will be another critical benefit for my patients and will help me ensure those who may need an MRI can benefit from Nyxoah’s innovations with no fear for themselves and their implant during the exam”.
