DreamWear Full Face Mask
Winner - Gold
Designer: Philips Design Team Sleep & Respiratory Care
Design Type: sleep apnea mask
Company / Organization / School: Philips
The first, full face CPAP mask to use airflow through the frame, the air connection with 360 swivel at the top of the head minimizes bulk and weight on your face and allows the user to sleep in any position and roll freely. With more of the face exposed, the mask helps users feel like they don’t belong in a hospital and closer to their partner. We have removed as much hard plastic from the users face as possible, simplified the mask to the minimum, and streamlined the form. The under the nose hybrid cradle cushion seals over the mouth as well, offering the same comfort and performance as traditional full face cushion at a fraction of size. The soft, flexible silicone frame and cushion reduces irritation caused by hard plastic and connects to a redesigned headgear for improved comfort and ease of use.
