Hassle-free CPAP therapy with the Mirage FX
The ResMed Mirage FX is all about simplicity. It's easy to fit, easy to use and easy to clean. It has been designed so that the regular size will fit 90% of all CPAP patients, and with just four unique parts it is incredibly easy to clean and maintain. For those who want CPAP with minimal hassle, the Mirage FX is for you.
The Mirage FX has just four distinct parts; The headgear, the cushion, the mask, and the elbow. This makes taking the mask apart for cleaning and maintenance simple. There's no fiddly parts that can easy get lost or prove troublesome, it's as straightforward as possible. The minimal design also ensures that the mask is lightweight while wearing it for greater comfort.
Unique design avoids the nasal bridge
Ask any CPAP user where they experience the most discomfort from their CPAP mask, and most will say their nasal bridge. The solution? Change the cushion design to avoid that area; and that's exactly what the Mirage FX does. It sits just below the bridge, at the ptop of the nose, avoiding the comfort issues some experience with regular mask design and also ensuring the ResMed Mirage FX fits the broadest range of users possible. As a result, your field of vision is opened up, allowing for wearing glasses and reducing any feeling of claustrophobia.
The cushion itself uses what ResMed calls a dual-wall, Spring Air cushion. This mean that the cushion actually inflates slightly, therefore spreading pressure evenly around the whole cushion rather than creating pressure points - particularly on the upper nose.
The forehead support uses a butterly wing design that ensures only the headgear comes into contact with the forehead. No plastic, not even a silicone pad; just the SoftEdge headgear straps. The headgear is soft to touch and is designed to provide a comfortable but stable fit throughout the night.
One size fits almost all - 90% in fact
