Royal Philips has launched DreamStation Go, its newest and smallest positive airway pressure (PAP) device designed to simplify travel for patients living with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The device is now available for direct purchase in the US through select online retailers.
DreamStation Go is half the size of Philips’ previous generation devices and delivers the same clinically-proven performance and comfort, for reliable, convenient therapy on-the-go, according to the company.
The device is designed with traveling patient needs in mind and weighs less than two pounds and features a built-in power supply that helps to limit the number of components to pack.
Philips’ new 12mm micro-flexible tubing continues the compact trend across the holistic system, minimizing bulk while improving mobility and comfort.
The company noted that DreamStation Go meets FAA standards for in-flight use, so users can keep up with therapy even when taking an extended or red-eye flight.
“Traveling with a sleep therapy device can be a cumbersome experience for patients with obstructive sleep apnea,” said Mark D’Angelo, OSA patient and Sleep Therapy Business Leader at Philips. “While we have made strides to reduce the size and weight of our machines in recent years, most are still carried as a separate piece of luggage—a fact that has led many users to resent and even forego therapy during travel. We designed the DreamStation Go as a holistic system with compact features and proven performance to help eliminate the need to sacrifice reliable therapy for convenience when traveling and vice versa – allowing for the best possible night’s sleep no matter where it happens.”
