The importance of Oxygen

100% of scientists agree that oxygen plays an essential role in our ability to survive. It is immediately noticeable when your body isn't able to get the oxygen it needs, but what happens when your body starts getting more?

It turns out, some pretty great things.

 

Using this simple philosophy, we set out to create an appliance that naturally aligns your airway in its most optimal position with the least amount of obstructions. By focusing on maximizing airway while maintaining premium comfort, the PX3's unique design was forged through 10+ years of user-based and institutional research and the development of a state-of-the-art 3D design/manufacturing process. Culminating into an appliance unparalleled in comfort, usability, and performance.

PX3 is designed with one goal in mind: Get you more air

Test your
BOLT Score 

The BOLT score is not a measurement of how long you can hold your breath. Instead, it aims to measure how long your body takes to react to the lack of oxygen intake. Improving your BOLT score can help improve your focus, energy, and productivity and it is recommended to take the test first thing in the morning, as your score can vary depending on how much sleep you've had.

Take the test:

01

Take 3 normal breaths in and out through your nose

02

At the end of your 3rd exhale, pinch your nose with your fingers to prevent air from entering your lungs

03

Start timer

00:00:00

04

Time how many seconds it takes until you feel the first urge to breathe, or notice your body's first stresses to breathe.

Some sensations to look for when your body is urging you to breathe include:

  • Tightening of your airways

  • Your diaphragm, abs, or throat contracting

  • The need to swallow

05

Let go of your nose, stop the timer and breathe normally

Less than 10

Between 10-20

Above

20

BOLT is below 10: Your everyday breathing is noisy, irregular, and labored. You sigh or yawn a lot and sleep is disrupted, leaving you fatigued.

10-20: Your breathing may be compromised by a blocked nose, wheezing, or coughing. Your sleep is disrupted. Your energy and concentration are fluxuating throughout the day.

20-30: Your normal breathing is quiet, calm, and effortless. A BOLT score of around 20 seconds is good. But there are benefits for health, fitness, and sleep if you can improve it even more.

Preliminary PX3 Clinical Sleep Trial Results

PX3 is by definition a fully customized Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD) and is clinically validated to treat mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Numerous studies on MADs and oral appliance therapy have been done demonstrating the effectiveness of treating mild to moderate OSA with such devices.

 

While CPAP therapy remains a top option for patients suffering from OSA, PX3 offers a viable alternative for those unable to tolerate CPAP or seeking non-surgical or non-pharmacological solutions.

Before deciding on any treatment options, it is imperative that you first consult with a qualified medical or dental professional.  As with any treatment solution, there are certain limitations and potential risks that you need to discuss and consider with your healthcare provider.

Participants:

Twenty-five fully informed, non-smoking male and female subjects participated in this research study. The subject pool comprised non-smoking United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) cadets, USAFA civilian employees, and United States military members that were currently partaking in aerobic exercise for more than 30 min/d, at least three times per week.
