SleepWeaver Advance Cloth Nasal Mask
Seep soundly with Sleepweaver Advance, the only soft, 100% cloth CPAP mask on the market today.
Reduced Air Leakage
The SleepWeaver is made of cloth and has no rigid parts that come into contact with the skin. It inflates to form a balloon of air that pushes gently against the patient's face to form a seal. Because the cloth is flexible and follows the exact shape of each individual patient's face, air leakage is reduced.
Reduced Pressure from Headgear
Very little tension is required in the headgear to achieve a good seal, which is formed by the air pressure inside the mask instead. Because the need to continually tighten the mask to achieve a good seal is eliminated, SleepWeaver users no longer experience pressure sores on the bridge of the nose or other parts of the face.
More Sleep Position
SleepWeaver allows patient to sleep on their back, side, or stomach without rigid buckles, clips or faceplates digging into their skin. Because the mask is light and soft, it stays positioned all night even as the patient changes sleep positions. Users report waking up in the middle of the night and wondering if it is still on their face, only to find it gently and quietly in place.
No More Skin Irritation
The cloth material is very smooth and breathable. So while it forms a very good seal, it does not feel sticky or tacky on the skin and it does not create allergic reactions. There is nothing that goes inside of the nose to irritate or dry out the mucosal tissues inside the nose. The mask contains no latex or silicone.
CPAP mask noise comes from three sources: the exhalation valve, leaks and turbulence inside the mask. The SleepWeaver has a series of small exhalation holes that eliminate air "whooshing" or "whistling" sound. The mask fits with very few leaks, reducing the sudden air escape noises. And the mask is designed so that the air turbulence inside the mask is minimized, reducing the last source of mask noise.
I am very disappointed with my purchase. It is hugely overpriced for a bit of Nylon cloth taped to a short piece of plastic pipe with a couple of straps at £129.00! It leaks into my eyes, causing oedema underneath, so I look ten years older with big puffy swollen bags which take all day to dissipate. To avoid that, you can tighten the strap over your head, which then cuts hard under your nose; long term this will cause more problems.
