We are Alaxo Canada Inc., and are proud to represent innovators of the highest standard, cutting-edge technologies to lead the industry forward. Through meticulous and reliable work, the company has become known as a unique medical device Manufacturer.
The product portfolio is currently comprised of two product families, the AlaxoStent and AlaxoLito Nasal Stent.
The AlaxoStent is a Health Canada approved medical device for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and snoring. The AlaxoStent is clinically tested and bears the CE Mark for treatment of patients with obstructive sleep apnea or snoring. It provides numerous advantages in handling and convenience over a CPAP machine.
The AlaxoLito Nasal Stent is a Health Canada approved medical device for the treatment of decreased nasal breathing as well as resulting snoring. Causes can be nasal alar collapse, nasal valve collapse or turbinate hyperplasia.
There are three different product variants, which splint either the anterior nasal cavity only [AlaxoLito Nasal Stent] or the full-length nasal passage [AlaxoLito Plus Nasal Stent and the AlaxoLito Sport]
The Alaxo Stents are a reusable stent that can be worn for up to 18 hours a day and they need to be replaced every 18 months.
It is as simple as wearing contacts and can cost less than $1 per day.
Sports Enhancement and Day-to-Day Use
Testing of the AlaxoLito during sports (road racing, cross country skiing, mountain hiking) resulted in a strongly enhanced condition. Its application during endurance sports can lead to a greatly enhanced performance due to improved nasal breathing. It is known that nasal breathing compared to mouth breathing increases the blood oxygen content by 10-15% and that it stimulates the parasympathetic nerve system.
Importance And Advantages Of Nasal Breathing
Natural healthy breathing
Stimulates the wellness nerve (parasympathetic nerve) [mouth breathing stimulates the stress nerve = sympathetic nerve]
Nasal breathing leads to better oxygen supply to the body than mouth breathing
Nasal breathing reduces oxidative stress during sleep as well as throughout the day
Nasal breathing maintains the body performance capacity at a high level
Nasal breathing is important for muscle fitness
Nasal breathing reduces the risk for dangerous diseases, e.g. lung, circulation, and skin diseases or dementia/Alzheimer, circulatory disorders
Advantages Of Mechanically Splinting The Nose
Securing and improvement of natural breathing through the nose
Support for the body for its optimal function
Prevention of stenoses and obstructions in the nose and throat (nasal alar collapse, snoring, obstructive sleep apnea) effective against snoring (no more flutter of the soft palate)
Well-being and health are strongly improved
Advantages Of The AlaxoLito (Plus) Nasal Stents
Improved oxygen uptake due to optimized nasal breathing
Optimization of lung function and deep healthy diaphragm breathing
Positive influence on the flowability of the blood and the flexibility of the arteries
Reduction in the risk of infection by good air supply to the sinuses
AlaxoLito (Plus) Nasal Stents keep the airway open during allergic or chronic turbinate swelling or an infection and enable good nasal breathing
Breathing effort is reduced due to a lowered breathing resistance
Strongly enhanced sports performance by continuously consistent good and long-lasting nasal breathing
Alaxo Stent Advantages For Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Avoidance of surgical procedures and artificial ventilation by CPAP therapy in case of obstructive sleep apnea
Stents act at the sites where sleep apnea patients have the airway obstructions
No dehydration of mucosa as natural breathing is maintained
Full flexibility and no restrictions during sleep
No power connection required as solely mechanical therapy
Simple, small, easily portable, advantageous during traveling
