TECHNOLOGY:

Flex Family™

 


A-Flex® Pressure Relief Technology

A-Flex is designed to work with our clinically proven auto CPAP algorithm to improve comfort even more by matching pressure delivery to the patient’s entire breathing cycle. Like C-Flex, A-Flex provides flow-based pressure relief at the beginning of exhalation. Like Bi-Flex, A-Flex softens the pressure transition from inhalation to exhalation to provide additional comfort in an auto-CPAP mode. The pressure profile mirrors the patient’s breathing, and with the auto algorithm intelligence, it will respond to the patient’s therapeutic need throughout the sleep session.


Examples of pressure profiles delivered by the auto-algorithm over time. Pressure automatically adjusted by the proactive Auto Algorithm. Set minimum pressure at 6 cm H20 to enable A-Flex.

For you, the addition of A-Flex to our Flex Family of pressure relief technologies means that every patient can enjoy more comfortable and effective therapy. In fact, you may never deal with ordinary constant pressure therapy again.


Bi-Flex® Pressure Relief Technology

Bi-Flex pressure relief technology offers pressure relief at inhalation and exhalation to make BiPAP therapy more like natural breathing. By tracking each breath, Bi-Flex pressure relief technology delivers pressure relief at three critical points in the breathing cycle:

    1. the transition from exhalation to inhalation
    2. the transition from inhalation to exhalation
    3. during exhalation




C-Flex™ Pressure Relief Technology

C-Flex pressure relief technology makes sleep therapy more comfortable by reducing pressure at the beginning of exhalation and returning to therapeutic pressure just before inhalation. The level of pressure relief varies based on the patient’s expiratory flow and which of the three C-Flex settings has been selected.



The real brains behind C-Flex is our patented Digital Auto-Trak & Sensitivity. Digital Auto-Trak is a highly sensitive algorithm that tracks each breath and detects the onset of inspiration and expiration – even in the presence of mask leak. It then responds by triggering C-Flex to provide an adaptive pressure relief right when the patient needs it. And delivering the right level of pressure relief when patients need it makes therapy more natural – and more comfortable.
