Sleep Apnea Innovation
How it Works
Inspire works inside your body while you sleep. It’s a small device placed during a same-day, outpatient procedure. When you’re ready for bed, simply click the remote to turn Inspire on. While you sleep, Inspire opens your airway, allowing you to breathe normally and sleep peacefully.
No mask. No hose. Just sleep.
Inspire is the only FDA approved obstructive sleep apnea treatment that works inside your body to treat the root cause of sleep apnea with just the click of a button.

Alternative to CPAP
Inspire treats the root cause of sleep apnea by applying gentle stimulation to key airway muscles during sleep, allowing you to breathe normally, and more importantly, sleep without a mask, hose, or machine.
Inspire is placed under the skin of the neck and chest during a short, outpatient procedure. Shortly after the procedure, Inspire is turned on and you’ll be ready to get the sleep you’ve been dreaming of.
Inspire was FDA approved in 2014 and has been proven both safe and effective in multiple clinical studies. It is the only FDA approved obstructive sleep apnea treatment that works inside the body with just the click of a button.
Inspire Therapy for Sleep Apnea
Sleep Tight Diagnostic Center in Houston is proud to offer Inspire Upper Airway Stimulation therapy, a new treatment option for obstructive sleep apnea. Unlike CPAP, Inspire works from inside the body with the patient’s natural breathing process.
Inspire Therapy Can Help
Inspire therapy is FDA approved and clinically proven to significantly reduce sleep apnea events and improve quality of life for the patient and their families.
An Inspire therapy-trained doctor will evaluate your overall health and perform a physical examination of your airway to determine if Inspire therapy might be a suitable CPAP alternative for you.
How Inspire Works
The Inspire system works completely inside your body with your natural breathing process to treat obstructive sleep apnea. While you are asleep, Inspire delivers mild stimulation to the hypoglossal nerve, a nerve that controls the movement of the tongue and other muscles in the airway. By stimulating the nerve, the tongue and other tissues move out of the airway so you can breathe during sleep.
Inspire therapy is controlled using the Inspire Sleep Remote. The Inspire Sleep Remote allows you to turn the therapy on and off, adjust stimulation strength, and pause stimulation during the night if needed.
Is Inspire Therapy Right for You?
You may be a candidate for Inspire therapy if you:
Have Moderate to Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Are Unable to Tolerate or Benefit from CPAP
Are Not Significantly Overweight
Are Over the Age of 22
The first step is to schedule a consultation with one of our Inspire Therapy-trained physicians to evaluate your overall health status and perform an examination of your airway anatomy to determine if Inspire therapy might be a suitable alternative for you.
