Philips launches its new DreamWear Silicone Pillows, part of its DreamWear system of masks, to North America. The all-silicone pillow cushion was designed using data from thousands of 3D facial scans to anatomically conform to fit and seal various nostril shapes and sizes across populations.
DreamWear Silicone Pillows is the latest addition to Philips’ modular DreamWear platform, which offers multiple cushion options on one mask frame. This modularity facilitates efficient exchange of cushions during titrations. The data-driven design of DreamWear Silicone Pillows is now available for sizing via Philips Mask Selector.
“In order to help patients adhere to their sleep apnea therapies, it is critical that we continue to innovate and create solutions to effectively address patient compliance challenges,” says Pamela Hall, sleep category leader at Philips, in a release. “Through a combination of addressing customer feedback and data-driven design, we continue to grow our Dream Family with more options that offer an unmatched holistic experience when it comes to CPAP mask comfort, fit, convenience and efficiency. These can be paired with solutions like Mask Selector to help clinicians and our medical equipment partners to fit patients effectively, keep patients comfortable, optimize performance, and promote therapy outcomes.”
The new pillows cushion combines data from Philips’ 3D facial scan technology with an all-silicone design to help reduce pressure points inside the nostril. Philips conducted a comparable assembly weight test for DreamWear Gel Pillows, DreamWear Silicone Pillows, and ResMed Airfit P30i masks, which found Philips’ new silicone pillows mask to be the lightest tube-on-top pillows mask.
Now available in North America, the new cushion solution will expand to additional markets in 2021.
