The world’s first automated CPAP cleaner and sanitizer is experiencing growing demand.

There are more than 8 million CPAP users in the United States, according to SoClean CEO Bob Wilkins, and their numbers are increasing by 8 to 9 percent yearly. Wilkins said most sleep apnea sufferers in the United States remain undiagnosed. He estimates there are another 20 to 30 million potential CPAP users in the country, making the market for SoClean gigantic.

SoClean is the world’s first automated CPAP cleaner and sanitizer, Wilkins says, utilizing an activated oxygen sanitation process. With a patented design and ozone technology that doesn’t use any water or chemicals, SoClean claims to kill 99.9 percent of CPAP germs and bacteria, sanitizing the entire system without disassembling the machine.
