Somnetics International Inc, the Minneapolis-based maker of the Transcend Sleep Apnea Therapy System, received CE Mark and will expand distribution of Transcend to Europe.

Transcend is the small, light, and portable continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) and battery system. Somnetics recently introduced new options and accessories that make Transcend a more flexible CPAP system for hassle-free travel and home use.

“Our distribution is in place and we plan to move quickly into key European markets,” said Rischeh Kumarasinghe, senior vice president of Somnetics International. “We have ramped up our sales and marketing support to meet international demand.”
