Royal Philips introduced DreamWear Silicone Pillows to the innovative DreamWear system of masks. DreamWear’s unique design offers one mask with three cushion options: nasal, pillow and full face, to allow patients to choose the interface that works best for them. With more freedom of movement and more comfort, DreamWear patients feel like they are not wearing a mask at all. The all-silicone pillow cushion was designed using data from thousands of 3D facial scans that conform to fit and seal various nostril shapes and sizes.
DreamWear Silicone Pillows is the latest addition to Philips’ modular DreamWear platform designed to simplify set-up by offering multiple cushion options on one mask frame. It also aims to address mask refit and therapy adherence challenges for both patients and providers.
Pamela Hall, Sleep Category Leader at Philips said, “In order to help patients adhere to their sleep apnea therapies, it is critical that we continue to innovate and create solutions to effectively address patient compliance challenges. Through a combination of addressing customer feedback and data-driven design, we continue to grow our Dream Family with more options that offer an unmatched holistic experience when it comes to CPAP mask comfort, fit, convenience and efficiency. These can be paired with solutions like Mask Selector to help clinicians and our medical equipment partners to fit patients effectively, keep patients comfortable, optimize performance, and promote therapy outcomes”.
- Exceptional fit and comfort: DreamWear’s soft, flexible silicone frame and fabric wraps provide a soft touch on the patient’s cheek and more comfortable to wear.
- Freedom of movement: Unrestricted by cumbersome tubing, patients can sleep in any position they desire – on their stomach, side, or back with DreamWear.
- Like wearing nothing at all: Its remarkable design directs airflow through the frame so patients can sleep comfortably. The minimal contact, under-the-nose cushion prevents red marks, discomfort, or irritation in the nostrils or on the nose bridge.
- Simply switch cushions without changing masks: The DreamWear mask is designed to switch cushions types quickly and easily. Without changing masks. DreamWear may reduce the number of masks a user needs to try to get set up.
The new pillows cushion combines data from Philips’ advanced 3D facial scan technology with a unique, all-silicone design to help reduce pressure points inside the nostril. This innovative approach offers both comfort and an effective fit and seal, an ideal combination for therapy acceptance and adherence, particularly when paired with DreamWear’s convenient modular interchangeability. Philips’ new silicone pillows mask is the lightest tube-on-top pillows mask available today.
