The CPAP mask is a device that fits over the nose and mouth of a person who has sleep apnea to help them breathe more easily. It is typically made of plastic, but some models are made of cloth.
Statistics from fifteen years ago indicated that almost half of all CPAP patients stopped using the machine, owing to mask discomfort. Most CPAP masks have been made out of a variety of polymers that are, by their very nature, not skin-friendly for years, and still are today. Improvements in mask and headgear design have aided treatment compliance, although the materials utilized are still an issue. The Circadiance team developed SleepWeaver fabric CPAP masks to solve this issue.
The advent of cloth masks in 2007 revolutionized the CPAP industry. According to new research, 80% of patients who use SleepWeaver as their initial CPAP mask continue with their treatment. Because of the basic difference in structure, no other mask can compete.
Here are 12 compelling reasons to abandon your plastic mask in favor of SleepWeaver:
1: Because the fabric material is air-impermeable, the mask inflates like a balloon, sealing your face with a cushion of air. The mask’s fabric conforms to the curves of each patient’s face, improving comfort and reducing leakage.
2: There are no pressure points that induce skin disintegration since the seal is formed by air pressure.
3: SleepWeaver masks are composed of a soft fabric that is soothing on the skin and feels like wearing a comfortable pair of pajamas.
4: The special material wicks moisture away from your face, keeping it dry.
5: SleepWeaver masks reduce strap marks and lines on your face by eliminating the need to adjust headgear to create a seal.
6: The SleepWeaver masks are the lightest on the market. Because most of them are under 2 oz, the amount of strap tension needed to hold them in place is reduced.
7: These masks enable you to sleep in a variety of postures. You can sleep on your back, side, or stomach if that is your preference. There are no harsh buckles, clips, or faceplates to scratch your skin.
8: Masks come in a wide range of forms and sizes. The original model, the SleepWeaver Advance, was launched first and is still quite popular, however the following subsequent versions have many improvements:
- Regular, small, and big cushions are available in SleepWeaver Élan to accommodate a broad range of consumers. For new patients, Élan offers a starting package that includes all three sizes of cushions, as well as a Feather Weight Tube® and tether strap.
- The SleepWeaver AnewTM mask covers the lips and nose and is a full-face mask. If you breathe through your mouth or at a greater pressure, this is ideal. Regular, small, and big cushions are also available in the Anew.
- The most ubiquitous of them is SleepWeaver 3D. It’s been redesigned to be much more adaptable and suit a broader range of facial shapes. The 3D also comes with redesigned headgear that wraps the straps over your ears for a more secure fit.
9: All SleepWeaver masks are comfortable to wear while wearing glasses, making them ideal for reading or watching TV in bed.
10: Tiny exhalation holes in the fabric masks disperse air and reduce noise as you breathe out. This function is the key to a restful night’s sleep for both you and your spouse.
11: Hand-washing SleepWeaver masks with a moderate, non-abrasive detergent is simple.
12: A 90-day warranty and a 30-day risk-free money back guarantee are included with every SleepWeaver mask.
Other materials can never compare to the softness and natural feel of fabric. Try a SleepWeaver if you’re ready to quit the plastic.
