March 19, 2019

Utrecht, The Netherlands and Mont-Saint-Guibert, Belgium – Nyxoah S.A., a healthtech company focusing on the development of innovative solutions and services for sleep related disorders, today announced that the company has received CE Mark approval for the Genio™ system in Europe. The Genio™ system is the world’s first and only battery-free, leadless and minimally invasive neurostimulator, capable of delivering bilateral hypoglossal nerve stimulation for moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients who have failed conventional therapy.

The CE Mark approval was based on the BLAST OSA (BiLAteral Hypoglossal Nerve Stimulation for Treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea) clinical study, a prospective study that evaluated the safety and performance of the Genio™ system in 7 centers in France and Australia.

“Patients from the BLAST OSA study show a major improvement in their sleep apnea symptoms and their Quality of Life” said Enrique Vega, Chief Executive Officer of Nyxoah.

Robert Taub, Chairman of Nyxoah said: “The sleep community is looking for alternative solutions for OSA patients who refuse currently available therapies or are not compliant. Having now received CE mark, Nyxoah’s Genio™ system is well on its way to fulfil this need”.
