The Scanning Application

Our scanning application is an integrated platform for the creation, manufacturing, and distribution of patient ‘matched’ respiratory devices.

How it works.

All aspects of our service from scanning to ordering are contained within a single tablet device. Using tablets with an attached 3D scanner, our software can guide any clinician through the process of taking a scan, uploading it to our server and tracking the mask from creation to delivery.
 
 
 

Patient Activation

During a scheduled visit from an interested patient, a clinician simply opens our application on the provided tablet. The application has been designed with efficiency and ease of use in mind. Clinicians simply add the patient in the application and they are ready to scan and order for them.
 

Scanning

Our team of designers has put considerable energy into ensuring the scanning process is highly curated and intuitive. The scanning software will guide you through the process of scanning a patient, indicating through visual cues when and where to sweep the scanner around the patient’s face. Once the scanner has collected enough data, the software will automatically notify you that the scan has been completed and upload the scan wirelessly to our secure server. The scanning process will take an estimated one to two minutes to complete.
 
 

Production

After a scan is complete, the tablet application will guide the provider to “place an order” for the patient. Once an order is confirmed, our software generates a manufacturing file from the scan, which provides for a 3D mold of the mask based on the patient’s face. Our mask molds are printed, cleaned, inspected, and cast out of medical-grade silicone.
 

Shipping
How it works

The finished order will be shipped back to the providers site where they can dispense to the patient. To ensure that every mask can be reliably matched to the intended patient, each mask will bear a unique ID number embedded into the silicone. Our software provides a check-in process to ensure the clinician can verify without any doubt the mask is the correct patients mask. The entire process for making a custom, 100% unique mask typically takes the same time as receiving a standard mask from a DME provider.
Will the mask really be that much better than existing CPAP interfaces?

It's called the Goldilocks problem: most currently available CPAP masks come in standard sizes, but human faces do not. This leaves you with the problem of having to overtighten a mask too large for you, or cramming your face into one that's too small. By building each mask around a scan of your individual face, our mask takes the painful guesswork out of finding a mask, letting you focus on getting to sleep.

When will it be available?

We're currently in the process of submitting our device to the FDA for clearance in anticipation  of receiving clearance later this year.  Once our device has been cleared, you'll be able to purchase it from participating sleep providers and durable medical equipment retailers.

Will there be an opportunity to try the mask before it hits the market?

Other than during sanctioned clinical trials, while our mask is moving through the FDA approval process, we are unfortunately not permitted to pre-release versions to the public.

Will you be releasing a full-face version or other mask styles?

The first model we will be releasing is the nasal cushion. We have plans to offer several 3D versions including a nasal and full-face model, so that each patient can receive the best mask for their needs.

Will it be available outside of the United States?

OSA affects large portions of the population regardless of their residence. Our goal is to ensure as many people as possible have access to our 3D print masks, and as soon as possible. The fastest way to do that is to release in America first, and then move it through the regulatory agencies for the rest of the world soon thereafter.
