Philips Mask Selector: A 3D scanning system for data-driven PAP mask fittings
Philips has developed a novel solution utilizing a three-dimensional (3D) facial scanner and associated software to assess facial anatomy characteristics, which aims to make the mask fitting process more efficient. In a randomized controlled trial, the use of a novel, automated mask fitting system resulted in fewer masks being used during the initial fitting process and over 90-days, compared to usual care, as well as significantly lower average mask leak. Although adherence was similar between arms, participants in the Mask Selector arm expressed a significantly higher level of confidence in, and satisfaction with, the mask selection process compared with usual care.
