Philips' Gel Technology Enhances Comfort, Therapy Options For 95% Of Sleep Apnea Patients

MURRYSVILLE, Pa., Nov. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Philips Respironics, a unit of Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) and a pioneer in science-based sleep solutions, brings a new comfort option to its best-selling, most comfortable full face mask that fits most patients. The Amara gel cushion option is part of a groundbreaking series of new masks and services that are setting a new standard for patient care.

The introduction to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy and to a full face mask can be challenging for some patients. With its renowned "one-click" design, and new gel cushion option, Amara delivers the performance and ease of use that contribute to help improve patient success.

Both Amara silicone and gel cushions interchangeably snap into one modular frame. With either silicone or gel cushion in place, Amara is smaller and lighter weight than the industry's leading full face mask, and has 60% fewer parts. Patients also can now choose the type of comfort they prefer in their cushion. The new soft gel cushion conforms to the contours of the face, providing exceptional seal and comfort. By providing two cushion options, patients and clinicians have two chances at successful outcomes on one mask system.

"We want to elevate patient and provider satisfaction of our most successful full face mask," said John Frank, senior vice president, general manager, Sleep and Respiratory Care, Philips Home Healthcare Solutions. "The new gel cushion gives patients the ability to customize their experience, while achieving the performance Amara is known for."

For clinicians, Amara offers a comprehensive fitting solution. Four different sizes fits more than 95% of faces. And with Philips Fit for Life solution, every new mask comes complete with resupply service.
