ActiveAir™ Technology

Incredible design starts with incredible technology

We put our best engineers to work on a device that was impossibly small without affecting the quality of your sleep therapy. What they came up with was ActiveAir, ground-breaking technology that can be powered by a motor that is 45% smaller than the motor in our bestselling sleep therapy device, the AirSense™ 10. 

How ActiveAir works

AirMini's smaller motor means the device must be able to increase therapy pressure without the need to proportionally increase flow, in order to deliver a similar level of therapy to a traditional bedside device.

ActiveAir uses a flexible silicone valve to regulate vent flow across the pressure range, reducing the overall flow required to achieve therapy pressures. This is what enabled us to create AirMini, the smallest CPAP device ever.*
