Royal Philips has sold its 10 millionth DreamWear CPAP mask and interchangeable cushion, according to a company announcement.
As part of the award-winning Dream Family, DreamWear is the only mask frame that accommodates multiple cushions, places the hose on top of the head, and is designed to prevent red marks, discomfort and irritation on the nose bridge. Philips is committed to its continued effort to improve the lives of patients living with sleep apnea by developing solutions that put the patient’s experience and comfort first.
In an effort to improve the quality of life for sleep apnea patients, Philips designed its DreamWear mask system with emphasis on comfort, freedom of movement, and preventing red marks, discomfort and nose bridge irritation.
Designed to more efficiently meet provider needs for mask change flexibility, DreamWear is the only modular mask frame system on the market that works interchangeably with nasal, pillow and full-face cushions. With the ability to work with all three cushion types, DreamWear fits over 95% of sleep apnea patients.
“The invention of the DreamWear mask was not just an incremental improvement on existing CPAP mask designs, but a generational leap forward in terms of comfort and usability,” said John Frank, Business Leader of Sleep & Respiratory Care at Philips. “Selling 10 million masks and cushions in just three years is a testament to the popularity of the patient-centric approach to design in health care, in addition to a proof point in the effectiveness of our innovative line of masks. This is just the latest example of Philips’ commitment to providing effective therapy options for sleep apnea patients, working toward our company-wide goal of improving three billion lives a year by 2025.”
