FDA submission lodged for O2Vent W
Brisbane, May 5, 2017 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Australian medical device company Oventus Medical Ltd. (ASX:OVN), has lodged an FDA 510k submission for its O2Vent W device - an oral appliance intended to reduce or alleviate snoring, mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) and severe sleep apnoea when the patient is intolerant to Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Devices.

This is in line with the company's strategy of expanding its product portfolio to incorporate Oventus Airway technology into all of the main design variations of oral appliances for the treatment of sleep disordered breathing. It demonstrates that Oventus Airway Technology can be incorporated into any device design to give patients and clinicians the benefit of the airway no matter what type of oral appliance they prefer to use.

Key Points:

- US 510k FDA submission for the O2Vent W - winged or dorsal flex appliance - has been lodged; FDA clearance will allow this version of the device to be sold in the US

- The Winged device allows dentists who prefer this type of mandibular advancement mechanism, to deliver appliances with the proprietary Oventus Airway Technology

- O2 Vent W was listed on the TGA's Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) in early March 2017 - the first appliances have now been shipped to Australian clinicians

- Once cleared, Oventus will have O2Vent appliances on the US market with the two most popular advancement mechanisms

Oventus Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Neil Anderson said: "The O2Vent W is important to the Company's positioning and ability to meet a wide range of needs in the dental marketing channel. Since the launch of the O2Vent T, we have had a significant number of dentists who have requested a Winged version of the O2Vent with an airway. This is often because they are used to delivering these types of appliances to their patients.

"We have been able to quickly develop and manufacture this device in response to these requests, and we are already shipping the first products to Australian clinicians for delivery to their patients."

Once FDA cleared, Oventus will have three devices for sale in the US market - O2 Vent W, and O2Vent Mono and O2Vent T that already have 510k clearance.

Additionally, the Oventus PAP connection, which is currently in an advanced stage of development, will be compatible with the O2Vent W and O2Vent T appliances for low pressure combination therapy. It is anticipated the clearance for O2 Vent W will be received in the 2nd half of the 2017 calendar year.
