Who We Are
Sommetrics is focused on improving health and well-being by optimizing sleep quality. Using our proprietary aer+TM technology, our initial focus is on developing solutions for disorders related to the narrowing of the airway during sleep, such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and in acute care medical procedures to safely support the patency of the upper airway requiring mild to moderate sedation. Our technology, which is utilized in our FDA-cleared product, will allow us to provide solutions to treat these disorders in a more effective and comfortable way than current products – serving a broader market. As we move forward, we will expand our products and services to help improve the quality of sleep for everyone.
