Appian Medical is leading the way in the innovation of mobile health technologies to solve the universal need for
accessible, accurate, and affordable detection of obstructive sleep apnea.


SnoreSounds utilizes clinically proven algorithms and software to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) by analyzing the structural characteristics and sound composition of snoring.

It is the first mobile health app developed to allow easy, definitive detection of OSA in the natural sleep environment, using a smartphone.

SnoreSounds will provide millions of people with an accessible, accurate and affordable method to determine their risk for OSA, without being tethered and trussed with wires, cuffs, straps or head attachments, or having to spend the night in a sleep lab.

The SnoreSounds platform will allow integration with other health and fitness monitoring technologies and health plans, to encourage broad consumer reach and usage.


Pediatric OSA is on the rise in the USA and may be linked with growing prevalence of childhood obesity and diabetes, among other health issues.  To make matters worse, the symptoms resulting from sleep-disordered breathing are tied to those of Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and may  linked to the ADHD epidemic.

Parents and physicians need an easy way to identify children who may be at risk for OSA and who would benefit from appropriate treatment.

Appian Medical is currently developing a second smartphone app that uses highly predictive and clinically validated technique to screen for moderate-to-severe OSA in children.
