No One Knows TAP Like We Do
Airway Labs is the original and leading production facility of the Thornton Adjustable Positioner® (TAP®).
We are an integral part of the design, improvement and development of all the new TAP appliances. Since Airway Labs dedicates its practice solely to the TAP appliances, it allows us to give exceptional quality and attention to each customer.
What Makes Our Lab Unique?
Our POD System
Each customer is assigned a POD upon request when they start their first case. This assures all of your TAP cases are made to your specifications, and it allows you to be in direct communication with your technician at any time.
PODs work in both assembly lines and independently as daily work flow permits, optimizing technical training for new technicians.
