The first, full face CPAP mask to use airflow through the frame, the air connection with 360 swivel at the top of the head minimizes bulk and weight on your face and allows the user to sleep in any position and roll freely.
The brief was to deliver a new archetype in CPAP mask that offers 360-degree freedom of movement and reduced complexity. We faced many challenges from design, research and engineering perspectives, but our unique role at Philips and how we are able to connect the dots between and work with and within cross-functional teams is one of our strengths.
With more of the face exposed, the mask helps users feel like they do not belong in a hospital and closer to their partner. We have removed as much hard plastic from the users face as possible, simplified the mask to the minimum, and streamlined the form. The under the nose hybrid cradle cushion seals over the mouth, offering the same comfort and performance as traditional full face cushion at a fraction of size. The soft, flexible silicone frame and cushion reduces irritation caused by hard plastic and connects to a redesigned headgear for improved comfort and ease of use.
With more of their face exposed the mask feels ‘less medical’ and removes the barrier between user and partner, it minimizes the sealing surfaces of the mask thus reducing red marks on nose and lets you see the users mouth allowing to communicate easier and be more expressive while wearing the mask. It builds upon the Dreamwear mask’s innovative platform approach to improving CPAP users experience and night’s sleep. This platform gives them choice and empowerment and control over their condition. We are giving CPAP users a humanizing solution that they don’t have to be embarrassed by.
