We are 100% committed to our patients

We believe in building strong relationships with doctors and health care professionals so we can directly support and advocate for the lives of our patients as they take on this challenging condition.

We have a deep understanding of the complexities and struggles that come with having obstructive sleep apnea so we always strive to make sure every patient gets the help they need.

The first and only FDA approved obstructive sleep apnea device

Our revolutionary Inspire® implant treats the root cause of sleep apnea by working inside the body with the patient’s natural breathing process.

Safe and proven effective, our technology improves quality of life by giving those struggling with their current obstructive sleep apnea treatment life-changing sleep.

Inspire was formed in 2007 when the Inspire technology, as well as a significant intellectual property portfolio, were spun out of Medtronic (NYSE: MDT).

“Put the patient first and you will never lose your way!”

Every obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patient experience is different, but one aspect rings true for all—it’s excruciating to live with. When it comes to OSA treatment, CPAP is the standard of care. While it works for many, it doesn’t always work for everyone. When this happens, patients feel like they’re out of options and out of luck.

Inspire is a solution for these people. It is placed surgically by an ENT and tailored to the patient by a sleep medicine professional. The patient controls implant with a small remote. Thousands of patients have come to count on Inspire for relief from OSA.

From its original founding in 2007, successful patient outcomes and care experiences have been the guiding tenants for Inspire. Dr. Glen Nelson, Inspire’s first chairman of the board, established the motto, “if we put the patient first, we will never lose our way.” This spirit guides us and has led to significant investment in the Inspire patient experience reporting (PER) system. Putting the patient first requires a deep understanding of the experience today and a continuous focus on identifying ways to make the experience better all the time.
