The Thornton Adjustable Positioner (TAP®) is a custom-made adjustable appliance that is worn while sleeping. Sleep disturbances occur with increased frequency in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) compared with the general population. TBI can have lasting consequences on cognition, functional capacity, ability to work, and quality of life.

These encompass sleep apnea syndromes, post-traumatic hypersomnia, insomnia, and related conditions. We can fabricate an oral appliance that is shaped much like boxer's bite guard and is worn in the mouth during the night. Device will prevent the softer tissues from the throat and soft palate from collapsing through over relaxation,and subsequently obstructing the airway. In those with TBI, disrupted sleep has been shown to impair rehabilitation efforts and progression, and is associated with diminished quality of life measures.

The long-term morbidity is also staggering, with 3.3 million people in the United States living with long-term neurologic disability from their injuries.
