Nuance Pro - Silicone frame with gel inserts
The Nuance Pro frame is flexible and transparent silicone gel inserts at the cheeks. The gel pads are fixed permanently to the frame and can not be removed. The headgear is designed with velcro strap which bind to the spaces provided in the frame silicone. Note: The frame with silicone gel pads used with Nuance Pro is not compatible with the headgear Nuance.
Short and flexible tube
The short tube of Nuance and Nuance Pro is highly flexible and lightweight. It creates a buffer between the connecting tube and the longer olivette nasal gel, allowing space for movement during sleep without the risk of twisting the pipe too. The end of the short tube includes a rotatable support that allows the long pipe to connect without difficulty and comfortably. The short tube is attached to the appropriate section of the bearing that is inserted into the mixing bowl of the frame. The gel cushion fits comfortably in this space provided.
The headgear of Nuance and Nuance Pro provides the ability to hook the short pipe in a position to do it over his head and holding it fixed so without giving him the opportunity to move freely during sleep.
Micro exhalation holes
The elbow used in Nuance and Nuance Pro comes with micro holes exhalation which is easier with the trend of respiratory flow. The holes are angled in the direction of the tube; Therefore, if the tube is fixed above the head holes will also be turned upward, conversely, if the tube is left free down the holes will be angled towards the user's body.
Minimal design and convenient for traveling
Nuance and Nuance Pro masks are reading composed of only four parts that make it easy maintenance. The design of the bearing includes no forehead support, in order to keep out the view of the user, if you wear glasses or want to read or watch TV while preparing for sleep. Nuance and Nuance Pro can easily be collected in a travel bag without there being the risk of breaking a part of the mask.
What is the difference between Nuance and Nuance Pro?
The only detail that distinguishes these masks is the material that makes up the structure of the mask. Nuance uses the soft fabric to make its strength light weight and ease of use, while Nuance Pro prefers to focus on comfort at the expense of weight, using an all-silicone gel inserts.
What is the difference between a silicone pad and a gel pad?
The two main differences that distinguish a silicone pad by a gel reside in weight and comfort given to the patient.
Silicone has the advantage of being extremely light and can be molded in a bearing rather thin. Unfortunately it is necessary to carefully choose the size of the mask, since the material does not ensure 100% adherence to the face.
The gel, in contrast, provides comfort and tack to the face that the silicone is not able to reach, resulting in much more soft and adaptable. Obviously, the bearing can be much heavier than its counterpart, more often and cumbersome, and not always the patient tolerates these defects.
In essence, advantages and disadvantages of these two materials must be assessed solely on the basis of the preferences of the patient.
