In a competition against designers and companies from 57 countries with a total of 4,252 products, ResMed was awarded the "red dot award: product design 2010" for its S9 Series in the category where the company competed.

ResMed’s CPAP/APAP device, the S9 Series, is expected to help more sleep apnea patients adhere to the treatment and ultimately help them to experience a restful night’s sleep without apneas.

"Great design in medical devices should combine good looks, innovation and user-friendliness, as well as address an unmet medical need. We listened to our customers and patients in the development of the S9 Series: our design goal was to create the most comfortable sleep therapy system in the global marketplace that is "at home" in the bedroom environment,” said Michael Farrell, senior vice president, Global Sleep Strategic Business Unit, ResMed. “We are flattered to be recognized along-side companies with a legacy of engineering and design, such as BMW. Winning the red dot award is solid third-party validation that the S9 Series is a revolution in sleep apnea therapy with its unique blend of technological progress and modern design."
