SoClean is bringing its automated CPAP cleaner and sanitizer directly to consumers in key international markets. In 2018, the company expanded to Canada and the United Kingdom; soon consumers in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Japan and Australia will be able to purchase the device as well.

SoClean’s device uses ozone technology to kill 99.9% of germs and bacteria that can be found in CPAP equipment, including the mask, hose, and reservoir. Its one-touch, fully automated process requires no water.

“Global awareness of sleep apnea is continuing to rise, with 1 billion people1 estimated to be suffering from the condition worldwide today, making the disorder a public health epidemic,” says sleep specialist Robert S. Rosenberg, DO, FCCP, in a release. “The good news is that sleep apnea is highly treatable with CPAP therapy.”

Robert Wilkins, CEO of SoClean, says, “As SoClean has grown in the US market, we’re in the perfect position to expand globally. By doing so, we want to change lives around the world and help educate CPAP patients on the benefits of our industry-leading sanitizing solution.”

Dean Marcarelli, chief marketing officer at SoClean, says, “By replacing a time-consuming cleaning process with an automated sanitizing solution, we have helped U.S. patients stay compliant with their CPAP therapy. We’re looking forward to bringing our technology to global consumers so that they can know the benefits of a fully automated, one-step sanitizer.”
