CALGARY, AB (September 14, 2020) — Zephyr Sleep Technologies (Zephyr) is partnering with Apex Dental Laboratory Group (Apex) in a non-exclusive co-marketing relationship that provides Apex the authority to sell Zephyr’s MATRx plus™ to Apex customers and prospects.
“We are pleased to be partnering with Apex Labs who provides excellent customer service through personalized support and technical expertise. MATRx plus treatment planning combined with Apex’s superior clinical and technical expertise will provide dental practices a proven, precise and predictable solution to treating patients with sleep disordered breathing.” Paul Cataford, Chief Executive Officer, Zephyr
The proprietary MATRx plus is the only FDA-cleared oral appliance treatment planning system available. It is an easy-to-use tablet that gathers and communicates sleep and airway data securely, via the cloud, to eliminate all guesswork and provide fast and effective oral appliance treatment for patients with sleep disordered breathing. MATRx plus treatment planning:
- Identifies whether the patient has sleep apnea
- Determines if the patient will respond to oral appliance therapy
- Identifies the target protrusive position for effective oral appliance treatment, in advance of appliance fabrication
MATRx plus provides the dental team and their patients the most efficient means to test and fit an oral appliance in the treatment of sleep disordered breathing. Traditional methods of providing oral appliances are time-consuming and inconsistent, with a failure rate of approximately 40 percent. MATRx plus system provides a positive predictive value of 92 percent when identifying patients who will be successfully treated with an oral appliance.
