What are Stabi-pads™ and for
whom are they intended?
The well-known CPAP mask problems
In many patients using a nasal mask, it happens that during the night, the facial tissues gradually subside under the mask’s very localized pressure. Like most users of CPAP and BPAP nasal cap masks, those patients experience typical discomfort.
Almost 50% of those prescribed the CPAP treatment quit within 20 days.
Most typical nasal cap masks problems are:
• Air leaks, irritating the eyes
• Pressure marks, skin irritation, sores
• Nose bridge discomfort
• Mask not fitting right
• Mask moving during the night
The solution that you can beta-test:
the Stabi-pad™, a tailor-made comfort shield...
Stabi-pads™ are made of Turbocast® thermoplastic and a special polyolefin foam, both medical grade. When heated to a limited temperature, e.g. when dipped in hot water, the Stabi-pad™ becomes very malleable in a few tens of seconds. Placed on the patient’s face (on and around the nose), it will take the exact relief of the skin before returning to its semi-rigid state.
