Rethinking Mask Fitting for CPAP and BiPAP Patients
Sleep therapy is all about reinforcing patients'
compliance with their care, and the primary way
to achieve that lies in ensuring they have the right
mask for them. Comfort remains king.
However, there are several patient factors that mask
fitting hasn't taken into account but probably should. A
new mask-fitting technology tool is trying to change
that – worldwide.
Cox Tan-Ngo, the CEO of AR Medical Technologies, met
with HMEB to talk about how his company and its
MasktFit AR system are trying to change mask fitting
around the world. Using 3D facial scanning and an app
that collects anonymized mask profiles from across the
globe, MaskFit AR aims to help providers, patients and
referral partners optimize outcomes.
