We bring CPAP users an easy, fast and affordable CPAP mask-fitting experience.
Almost 1 billion people around the world are affected by obstructive sleep apnea, a sleep disorder which causes breathing interruptions and disturbs sleep. Patients suffer higher risks of heart attack, stroke and other health problems. Poor sleep quality drastically lowers patient’s quality of life, affecting their work and family life.
CPAP is a widely used sleep apnea therapy that pumps air into patient’s airway through a snuggly fitted mask. Having a well-fitted mask is crucial to ensuring the comfort and efficiency of the therapy. However, many patients have limited access to clinical guidance on mask selection and management. The current mask fitting approach can only be done in person, which can become time-consuming and costly for both patients and clinics.
