Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which a person stops breathing at numerous points throughout the night. The person will wake up constantly, whether or not they remember it, to reposition and continue breathing.

However, this can happen up to hundreds of different times every night, therefore preventing sufferers of sleep apnea from getting the rest they need.

Conventional treatment for sleep apnea therapy consists of a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine, which allows the patient to continue breathing properly throughout the night. However, CPAP machines are known for being bulky and uncomfortable, making it difficult for many patients to comply with this treatment and combat the effects of their sleep apnea.
