Sleep Apnea and Snoring are a common problem. Half a billion people globally are estimated to have Sleep Apnea and 80% of them are still undiagnosed. 50% of people who snore loudly have Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).

Aging and obesity of the population increase dramatically the prevalence of sleep apnea and snoring. Sleep apnea is not just a disease anymore, we could say it is an epidemic. In overall, the currently prevailing sleeping disorders screening and treatment solutions are invasive, inaccurate, expensive and usually need medical professionals´ assistance. These are also the main reasons why over 80% of the sleeping disorder suffering population has not been diagnosed and treated right so far. Nukute is the solution for this.
