The device is in titanium e thanks to 3D printing it can be made to measure depending on the different conformation of the mouth of the patients who will have to use it. Why is it so special and how does it eliminate those ailments? Thanks to its shape: it fits like a normal night luminaire but its characteristic is to have a spout that stays out of the lips able to bring the air that is close to the teeth directly into the trachea to prevent it from becoming blocked in the tissues of the mouth, creating breathing problems and consequently sleep.
The scanner that will make (probably starting from 2015) the device is from the national body Csiro, and thanks to the 3D printer it will be able to create 14 mouthpieces in just 40 hours. A beautiful revolution therefore for those who suffer from these problems!
