Pennsylvania-based giant Philips Respironics has what company officials are calling the industry’s first and only gel pillows mask, which brings the comfort and sealing power of gel to nasal pillows. The Nuance mask is the latest in a series of new masks from Philips.
“With its sleek design and better seal, Nuance represents the new choice for better sleep therapy for clinicians, home care providers and patients,” says John Frank, senior vice president, general manager, Sleep and Respiratory Care, Philips Home Healthcare Solutions. “It is part of our comprehensive portfolio of masks and services designed to address some of the challenges facing home care providers today.”
Clinicians and providers have the ability to provide a high performance minimal contact mask for greater patient satisfaction. Nuance features an all-fabric frame and headgear that enhances patient comfort and causes fewer red marks. Nuance Pro’s gel-padded frame holds the mask in place during sleep and reduces the need for re-adjustment.
Over at InnoMed Technologies Inc, a new full face mask called the Aspen made its debut with designers touting the product as compact, quiet, lightweight, and affordable—all with a forehead pad featuring a SoftTouch Wrap.
“With competitive bidding and declining reimbursement rates, we felt it was important to round out our product portfolio as a company to remain competitive with companies such as ResMed, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare, and Philips Respironics,” states Ron Richard, CEO of InnoMed Technologies.
