ResMed masks: innovation and technology

At ResMed, our mission is to improve your day-to-day treatment journey.

Your comfort during therapy is important to us. Our focus on continuous innovation allows us to push the boundaries to give you lightweight masks with ultra-soft cushion technology, that are also easy to use and fit.

That’s why ResMed is the #1 mask brand preferred by patients globally.*

Learn more about all the different mask technologies that feature in various masks across our range.

MirageTM dual-wall cushion

  • The sculpted inner wall provides support and stability.
  • The thin outer membrane creates a comfortable seal.
  • Air flowing between the two walls helps you achieve a comfortable, stable seal without having to over-tighten the headgear.

Spring Air technologyTM with a moving membrane

  • Built-in elasticity in the cushion creates a ‘spring’ effect, making the seal work at its best.
  • The cushion follows your unique facial contours and adapts to your movements during sleep; the moving membrane comfortably hugs the nasal bridge to minimize air leaking into your eyes.
  • The cushion gently stretches around the jaw without losing the seal, which is ideal if your mouth opens (and you breathe through your mouth) while asleep.

Dual-wall nasal pillows

  • The thin outer wall is soft and comfortable.
  • The flexible inner wall creates a secure, stable seal.
  • Airflow between the two walls gently inflates the pillows to softly seal across a wide range of nasal types.
  • The pillows sit gently at the entrance of your nostrils and move independently of each other so they won’t come out of the nose or lose seal as you move around during sleep.

Diffused venting

  • Gently directs air away from you (and your bed partner).
  • Creates a quieter, more comfortable sleeping environment.

Squeeze-tab elbow

  • Squeezing the tabs on either side of the elbow makes it easy to connect and disconnect the elbow from the frame with just one hand.
  • For added convenience and ease-of-use, you can attach the tube to the elbow before attaching the elbow to the frame.

MicroFit dial

  • With a choice of 24 positions in 1 mm increments, the MicroFit dial (on the forehead support) gives you a precise fit that is tailored to your facial characteristics.
  • You can adjust the dial easily with one hand while the mask is still on your face.
  • Works hand-in-hand with the dual-wall cushion to reinforce the seal without having to over-tighten the headgear.

Anti-asphyxia valve for added safety

  • Allows you to breathe room air in the event of a power failure.
  • Featured in all ResMed vented full-face masks.

SoftEdgeTM headgear

  • Springs to life, ready to fit and wear.
  • Made from soft, flexible and breathable material, it is kind to your face.
  • The seamless design is more comfortable and reduces the chance of leaving any marks on your face.

Breathe-O-PreneTM headgear

  • Headgear is made from soft, durable and long-lasting material.
  • Air flows through the fabric so that it ‘breathes’, drawing moisture away from the skin for your comfort.

ActiveCellTM technology

  • An inflatable chamber in the cushion expands and contracts during therapy.
  • The cushion moves independently of the mask frame to maintain a gentle, secure seal, and reduce the chance of mask leak.
  • If you move around a lot during sleep (i.e. you’re an ‘active’ sleeper), the headgear works with you, accommodating your movements throughout the night.
  • The headgear also follows the contours of your face, minimizing any pressure or discomfort.

DoubleGel cushion

  • The clear gel layer provides comfort.
  • The blue gel layer maintains support and stability.
  • The cushion conforms to your unique facial contours for a comfortable fit.
