133-05-29-15 - Airing CPAP Device
Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly
look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices
designed to help people who have difficulties with vision,
mobility, hearing or other special needs!
Individuals who have sleep apnea don't wear their CPAP
masks as often as they're supposed to. This is
likely because of the CPAP's cumbersome design.
Fortunately, there is a revolutionary device being
introduced, called Airing, that aims to replace the
Airing is different from the standard CPAP in several
ways. First, it is cordless, hoseless and battery-powered,
thus liberating users from the mess of cords and hoses
traditionally found on a CPAP. Secondly, CPAP masks need to
be cleaned constantly; this is not true with Airing, as the
device is designed for one use only and is recyclable. To
