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

Simple handling

Full flexibility and no restrictions during sleep

No power connection required as solely mechanical therapy

Simple, small, easily portable, advantageous during traveling
