ResMed has made some substantial design changes to accommodate smaller facial features. After reviewing female patient performance, the silicone headgear and backstrap were altered. Each mask comes with two sets of colored backstraps and soft wraps, pink or gray. The Swift FX For Her makes fitting a cinch, packaging each mask with an Extra Small, Small, and Medium size pillows.
Ultra-Quiet The exhalation ports are located on the frame, not on the cushion, allowing air to disperse gently outward and away from the user. This improvement has dampened audible motor whine and airflow noise. Sound levels have been reduced to only 25 decibels at the mask.
Petite, Lightweight, and Travel Friendly Calling the Swift FX ‘minimal’ is not a fair description. The mask’s frame is practically invisible with the pillow cushion connecting seamlessly with the rest of the mask. A set of “lock and key” quick-release tabs secure the silicone headgear straps and allow for easy removal from the frame. The minimal design creates an ergonomic feel and allows for reading or watching TV at bedtime, even with glasses on.
Improved Pillows The nasal pillows are designed with dual-wall flaps with improved support and comfort. The cushion’s base is outfitted with an integrated flexible chamber that provides stability for side sleepers. This added flexibility accommodates movement and a reliable seal at high therapy pressures. The Swift FX has been tested up to 20cm of water pressure and can maintain a consistent seal even at maximum therapy.
Headgear Leading in innovation, ResMed introduces a soft, silicone-based headgear that cradles your face. Made from similar, silicone material found in cushions and pillows, the Swift FX headgear lightly rests on the user’s cheeks and quickly feels like nothing is there at all. This streamline design helps foster a sense of freedom and promotes early CPAP acceptance.
Soft Wraps For an added softness, ResMed has included a set of Soft Wraps, which can be worn around the headgear side straps. The soft fleece material prevents the silicone headgear from slipping and ensures maximum comfort.
Easy Fitting The minimal design is simple to use, with only 2 points to adjust: A low-profile backstrap and buckle on top. The backstrap is a Lycra-based material with Velcro fasteners. The top buckle is incorporated into the headgear and uses a set of notches for easy adjustment. The Swift FX headgear received three additional buckle notches that allow users to tighten around smaller heads. The adjustable backstrap was also shortened and can be worn under a pony tail, accommodating a wide range of hair styles. The Swift FX comes with Extra Small, Small, and Medium size pillows included with a Large size sold separately. All pillow sizes are interchangeable with the mask frame.
