The Therasnore Original
The Therasnore product was launched in 1987 by Dr. Thomas E. Meade, who founded Distar, an international company. Distar sells both the Therasnore Original and the Therasnore Adjustable.
Dr. Thomas E. Meade is the inventor of the TheraSnore. During the mid-1980’s Dr. Meade had a dental practice in Albuquerque, NM, while researching the connection between dentistry and sleep apnea. After developing the product, Dr. Meade’s wife, Caroline, founded the business and was the CEO of Distar. They started marketing the device by visiting medical trade shows and launched the Therasnore with great success.
By 1997 the Therasnore was a booming sleep business. In 1997, the adjustable Therasnore was introduced with a 93% efficiency rate. By 2001 the company was signing new distributors and increasing sales all over the world. Distar is still the largest export of oral appliances for the treatment of snoring and mild sleep apnea and is distributed to 37 countries.
The Therasnore is now exclusively sold by Tower Health.
