SAN DIEGO, April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ResMed (NYSE: RMD) expands its ultra-light, comfortable, and award-winning AirFit™ line of masks today with new nasal and full face options. The AirFit F10 compact full face mask and AirFit N10 compact nasal mask continue the company's 25-year history of innovating comfortable and effective solutions for treating sleep-disordered breathing.
"These new masks embody the AirFit brand, which is all about providing patients with lightweight, comfortable, and trusted solutions for treating their sleep-disordered breathing," said Jon Yerbury, vice president of ResMed's Sleep-Disordered Breathing Strategic Business Unit. "We know that if the mask isn't right, nothing else matters; mask comfort is the key to staying on therapy. Like all of our masks, we've invested in decades of research to ensure patient-centric designs are at the very core of the AirFit brand."
AirFit F10 is the Lightest Compact Full Face Mask on the Market
The AirFit F10 delivers comfort, stability, and performance in a simple and elegant design, and has all the benefits of a traditional full face mask in a compact form. Patients will also benefit from its circular diffused venting that directs exhaled air more evenly and makes it less likely to rebound off surrounding objects or bed partners, creating a more peaceful sleeping environment.
In ResMed testing, patients preferred the AirFit F10 over ResMed's leading compact full face mask in terms of seal, comfort, stability, and ease of use. The AirFit F10 is the lightest full face mask on the market, and its four-piece design makes it easy to clean and maintain.
The absence of a forehead support makes the AirFit F10 unobtrusive without sacrificing stability, and an audible three-click cushion-to-frame retention system improves usability. The mask's dual-wall Spring Air™ cushion provides a comfortable and reliable seal by gently conforming to the face.
AirFit N10 Offers Simplified Fitting and Clear Line of Sight
The lightweight AirFit N10 compact nasal mask stands out with its comfort and visual freedom in a user-friendly design. In ResMed testing, patients preferred the AirFit N10 over other industry-leading nasal masks in terms of ease of use, comfort, unobtrusiveness, and stability.
At less than 3 ounces, the AirFit N10 has a sleek under-eye frame that offers unobtrusive support without sacrificing stability, and as a result, provides a clear line of sight. Its modified dual-wall Spring Air cushion provides a comfortable and effective seal, while EasyClick headgear clips make it convenient to wear by securing the headgear to the frame with ease. Integrated lightweight, flexible tubing and minimal parts add to the nasal mask's appeal.
A Variety of Sizes for the Perfect Fit
The AirFit F10 and AirFit N10 masks come in a variety of sizes and are also available in For Her versions, designed specifically for female patients and their unique anatomy. Both masks feature SoftEdge™ headgear for added comfort.
The AirFit F10 comes in small, medium, and large sizes with blue headgear, and For Her versions with pink headgear in sizes extra small, small, and medium.
The AirFit N10 is available in small, standard, and wide sizes with blue headgear, and a For Her version with pink headgear in size small.
ResMed's AirFit F10 and AirFit N10 begin shipping in the U.S., Canada, and Latin America today. They join the award-winning AirFit P10, a nasal pillows mask, launched in early 2014. The AirFit P10 recently earned a prestigious Red Dot Product Design Award for 2014. Red Dot is the world's largest design competition.
