"The Theravent product is already helping a lot of couples get a better night's sleep," says Peter Wyles, CEO and President of Ventus Medical.  "Ventus worked with LUNAR on developing the very innovative Theravent product and we were able to create an elegant design that gives people an easy to use solution to effectively treat their snoring.  This is an important accomplishment in a market where 45 million people snore and their bed partners suffer."

"We are thrilled to see Theravent win this recognition," said John Edson, LUNAR's president.  "This simple, ingenious product is the most recent result of a lot of hard work and an amazing collaboration between the teams at Ventus and LUNAR. Even more satisfying than the award is seeing these products help a lot of people."

Theravent is a unique, disposable nightly snoring device that is FDA-cleared to reduce or eliminate snoring.  It has been proven to reduce snoring in clinical studies and is available without a prescription.  On average, successful Theravent users reduced snoring by 76%, as measured using a decibel meter worn on the forehead. Theravent uses the same patented MicroValve Technology that was previously only available with a prescription.  It is available exclusively on-line at http://www.theravent.com

About Theravent Advanced Nightly Snore Therapy
Theravent is a new, clinically proven, over-the-counter treatment for snoring. Theravent offers a proven solution for patients whose snoring is affecting the quality of their and their partners' sleep. Used nightly, Theravent gives snorers and their partners a quiet night's sleep. Theravent uses patented MicroValve Technology, previously only available with a prescription, to target and treat snoring. During inhalation, the MicroValves open--allowing nearly unobstructed airflow.  During exhalation, the MicroValves partially close, which increases expiratory pressure and keeps the airway open, preventing snoring.  Theravent received FDA clearance in June 2012. Theravent is not intended to treat obstructive sleep apnea.  For more information, please visit http://www.theravent.com.

About Provent® Sleep Apnea Therapy
Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy is a proprietary medical device for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).  The device has proven to be clinically effective in a series of published studies.  It is an easy to use, non-invasive disposable treatment that works across mild, moderate and severe OSA. Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy utilizes nasal expiratory positive airway pressure (EPAP) to keep a patient's airway open during sleep.  It incorporates a novel MicroValve design that is placed over the nostrils and secured with hypoallergenic adhesive.  During inhalation, the valve opens allowing nearly unobstructed airflow.  During exhalation, the valve closes, limiting airflow through small openings, which increases expiratory pressure and keeps the airway open, preventing disruption in breathing.  Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy is FDA cleared, has CE marking and has been accepted onto the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG).  For more information, please visit http://www.proventtherapy.com.
