Philips introduces world's first gel pillows mask for treating sleep apnea

"With its sleek design and better seal, Nuance represents the new choice for better sleep therapy for clinicians, home care providers and patients," says John Frank, senior vice president, general manager, Sleep and Respiratory Care, Philips Home Healthcare Solutions. "It is part of our comprehensive portfolio of masks and services designed to address some of the challenges facing homecare providers today."

Clinicians and providers have the ability to provide a high performance minimal contact mask for greater patient satisfaction. In preference studies, patients rated Nuance higher than the leading pillows mask in key compliance areas.* A choice of frame and headgear adds to the appeal.

  • Nuance features an all-fabric frame and headgear that enhances patient comfort and causes fewer red marks.
  • Nuance Pro's gel-padded frame holds the mask in place during sleep, reduces the need for re-adjustment, and provides a high-performance look.

Patients rate the Nuance gel pillows platform easier to assemble and use than the leading pillows mask.* The gel technology also reduces nostril irritation compared to leading pillows masks.*For providers, the new gel pillows conform to different size nostrils for ease in fitting and replacement parts.
