Makers of the Z1 CPAP that fits in the palm of your hand, Human Design Medical LLC has just announced an auto CPAP version of the device. The new Z1 Auto customizes therapy for each individual by monitoring pressure requirements thousands of times per night. Unlike fixed pressure CPAP devices, the Z1 Auto automatically responds to changes in breathing patterns and delivers maximum comfort by using the lowest possible therapy pressure throughout the sleep cycle.
The Z1 Auto employs the same power options as the CPAP-integrated PowerShell® and overnight lithium-ion battery and weighs just over 10 ounces.
The Z1 Auto is paired with a new iOS App called Nitelog. Nitelog syncs most iOS devices upon command with the Z1 Auto to display immediate and complete therapy results such as apnea/hypopnea count, usage hours, apnea/hypopnea index, and pressure. These results are available in day-week-month presentations and may be shared with a healthcare provider or physician by e-mail. Nitelog is available free for Z1 Auto users at the iTunes App Store.
“The Z1 Auto alone is a giant leap forward in CPAP technology and portability, and coupling it with Nitelog has created a CPAP user’s best friend. Now users can sync their device with their phone to monitor their sleep data as their first activity upon awakening. This truly is an exciting advancement for a sleep therapy device that was designed with the user in mind,” says Steve Moore, senior vice president-sales and marketing for HDM, in a release.
HDM is an affiliate of Breas Medical AB, Molnlycke, Sweden, and a portfolio company of PBM Capital, Charlottesville, Va.
The Z1 Auto is available for preorder now, including free shipping to arrive before Christmas.
