The FitLife is an alternative to conventional nasal or facial masks. The seal surrounds the whole contour of the face. This decreases the pressure on the cheeks and nose, which allows the cushion of soft silicone to adapt quickly and evenly for maximum comfort.
The system air pressure inflates the soft and flexible sealant layer, which minimizes losses while providing optimal airflow through the nasal channels. The cushion is shaped specifically to provide a perfect seal for the pressure, to provide air circulation throughout the mask and to allow the most natural and comfortable breathing.
The mask contains clips snap easy to use that do not require further adjustments during removal or installation.
The headgear FitLife is designed to support and stabilize the mask. The headgear color varies from black to light gray to dull blue. The back of the headgear may have or lack openings. For the manufacturer, these variations do not affect product performance.
- The small size mask is packaged together with the small size headgear.
- The large size mask is packaged together with the large size headgear.
- The extra lage size mask is packaged together with the extra large headgear.
What is the difference between a silicone cushion and a gel cushion?
The two main differences that distinguish a silicone cushion by a gel counts in weight and in the comfort given to the patient.
Silicone has the advantage of being extremely light and can be molded into a rather thin cushion. Unfortunately it is necessary to carefully choose the size of the mask, since the material does not ensure a 100% fit around the face.
The gel, in contrast, provides a comfort and adherence to the face that the silicone is not able to reach, resulting in much more soft and adaptable. Obviously, the cushion can be much heavier than its counterpart, more often and cumbersome, and not always the patient tolerates these defects.
Essentially, the advantages and disadvantages of these two materials must be assessed solely on the basis of patient preference.
