An estimated 29 million American adults suffer from sleep apnea, and studies have shown that current and former NFL players are at an even higher risk. Through screening events like this, Vivos certified providers hope to help identify those suffering from sleep apnea and provide a revolutionary course of treatment for players, with the ultimate goal of restoring and opening their airways, allowing more restful sleep and overall wellness.

"A massive number of Americans suffer from sleep apnea, and most don't even realize it," said Vivos CEO Kirk Huntsman. "Not only is public awareness essential, but also the knowledge that Vivos has a solution that actually works to resolve the root cause. Through our partnership with the NFLPA and screening retired players we hope to raise awareness both for players, and among the greater public."
