ResMed expands its Air Fit line of masks today with new nasal and full face options. The Air Fit F10 compact full face mask and Air Fit 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 Air Fit brand, which is all about providing patients with lightweight, comfortable, and trusted solutions for treating their sleep-disordered breathing,” says Jon Yerbury, vice president of ResMed’s Sleep-Disordered Breathing Strategic Business Unit, in a release. “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 Air Fit brand.”
The Air Fit 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 Air Fit F10 over ResMed’s leading compact full face mask in terms of seal, comfort, stability, and ease of use. The Air Fit 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 Air Fit 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.
The lightweight Air Fit N10 compact nasal mask stands out with its comfort and visual freedom in a user-friendly design. In ResMed testing, patients preferred the Air Fit N10 over other industry-leading nasal masks in terms of ease of use, comfort, unobtrusiveness, and stability.
At less than 3 ounces, the Air Fit 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 light weight, flexible tubing, and minimal parts add to the nasal mask’s appeal.
The Air Fit F10 and Air Fit N10 masks come in a variety of sizes and are available in For Her versions, designed specifically for female patients and their unique anatomy. Both masks feature SoftEdge headgear for added comfort.
The Air Fit 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 Air Fit 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 Air Fit F10 and Air Fit N10 begin shipping in the United States, Canada, and Latin America today. They join the award-winning Air Fit P10, a nasal pillows mask, launched in early 2014. The Air Fit P10 recently earned a prestigious Red Dot Product Design Award for 2014.
