Philips has announced the addition of a new line of nasal pillows to DreamWear masks. The gel pillows are an additional option for patients with DreamWear masks, and can be changed out within the same mask frame.
“The unique design of DreamWear is a radical departure from traditional mask technology,” Mark D’Angelo, sleep business leader for Philips, said in a press release. “It is not an incremental improvement on existing designs, but rather a generational leap forward. With the addition of DreamWear Gel Pillows, we are providing existing DreamWear users with an option for additional comfort, while giving patients who already love and use pillows an option to try our unique DreamWear line. As we continue to expand the Dream Family product line, our focus is to provide patients with an innovative, comfortable solution that help them improve their sleep and overall health.”
The Dream line of products is is comprised of DreamWear, DreamStation, a PAP therapy system connecting patients and care teams, and DreamMapper, an application that helps patients adjust to sleep therapy and compliance by actively engaging them through daily reminders and encouragement messages. DreamWear is an open-face CPAP mask that directs airflow through the sides of the mask to a hose at the top of the head, allowing for freedom of movement and the ability to comfortably wear glasses, read, or watch TV.
DreamWear Gel Pillows are now available for purchase through medical equipment providers and online retailers in North America and will be made available in additional markets later this year.
