Can I take my sleep therapy equipment on holiday?
Travelling with your therapy equipment is now made easier, thanks to ResMed's device technology.
Designed to be lightweight and highly portable, ResMed's therapy devices and masks will prove to be an easy travel companion, wherever you go. Due to the universal power supply, most ResMed devices can be used all over the world, in the great outdoors and even on an airplane. This helps make travelling with your therapy equipment, relaxed, comfortable and easy. Just the way it should be.
Love to go camping and enjoy the outdoors? Now you can, even with your ResMed device.
In addition, most of our devices operate with an external battery source, called the ResMed Power Station (RPS) II. It provides backup power in case the mains power fails unexpectedly. Our battery guide provides detailed technical information about using your device with an alternate power supply.
Now there's no reason why your treatment should keep you from flying and a good night's sleep. Thanks to the portability and convenience of ResMed's therapy equipment, the sky is the limit when you want to see more of the world.
