Myerson’s EMA device is a simple, patient-friendly oral appliance created for noninvasive, nonobtrusive treatment of Snoring. The primary treatment mechanism of opening the bite and gently moving the mandible forward is achieved with the use of interchangeable elastic straps that offer varying degrees of mandibular advancement. This comfortable device can be adjusted at home using one of four different strengths of elastic straps that match the strength of the pull to the musculature of the patient and minimizes tooth movement.
