NEW YORK, Oct. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Vivos Therapeutics, a leading company focused on addressing the root causes of mild-to-moderate sleep apnea, convened the inaugural "Breathing Wellness Conference".

The Vivos System consists of multi-disciplinary therapeutic protocols and oral appliances which increase and enhance the airway. It is the only non-surgical treatment to offer a potentially permanent solution for sleep apnea.
"We are thrilled to have brought together the world's leading experts in this movement to truly defeat sleep apnea through non-invasive and non-surgical means," said Vivos Therapeutics CEO and Director Kirk Huntsman.

Vivos will participate in the NFLPA's Professional Athletes Foundation's health and wellness checkup events that along with a full cardiovascular evaluation also focuses on breathing wellness. Events will take place in NFL team cities and at the 2019 Pro Bowl and Super Bowl.
