Transcend - the lifestyle option for CPAP users
The Transcend has a unique approach to CPAP therapy; put simply, you can customise the Transcend to fit into your lifestyle, rather than compromise your lifestyle to accommodate CPAP.
Whether you're looking for a primary CPAP machine to use every night, or a back-up unit for travelling with, the Transcend's extensive range of accessories allows you to customise it to fit your individual needs.
Want a convenient at-home machine? Simply use the Transcend Base Station to transform it into your primary CPAP machine.
Want to save bedside space? Being the smallest CPAP machine available, with an optional Base Station, the Transcend takes up little space on your bedside table.
The Transcend is the most customisable and portable CPAP machine available. This Transcend Starter Kit has everything you need to get you started, and the range of optional accessories then allows you to tailor your CPAP use around you and your life. Never before has CPAP been so accessible and personalisable. Choose the Transcend to get CPAP therapy on your terms.
What comes included in your Transcend Starter Kit
The Transcend Starter Kit includes:
• Transcend CPAP machine
• 6' / 183cm tube
• Universal hose adapter
• Mains power supply
• Travel bag (colour and design may vary and may be different to that shown - Somnetics change the design frequently - but the size and shape is always as shown)
On the left you can see what you get in the box.
Please note: batteries, docking stations and all other accessories not listed above are available separately, see below for details.
What are the drawbacks of the Transcend?
To achieve the Transcend's incredibly small size, there are a few compromises to be aware of. There is no LCD display screen displaying pressures, or any other information. A small series of lights give indicators about what the machine is doing or alerting you to any issues. The LCD Base Station, available separately, will provide this display functionality is desired.
Also worth noting is that you may find the Transcend machines to be a little noisier than other, larger machines, as there is less room for sound insulation and dampening. However, the Transcend still meets the industry-standard requirement of producing less that 30db in noise, but just be aware that light sleepers may need a little time to adjust to the slightly higher volume.
Choose your accessories to make the Transcend suit you

Ease of Use Value Quality Website Information ComfortThe little CPAP machine has given my husband the freedom to do his overnight fishing which up to now had been impossible. He is a happy bunny now!(Posted on 12 October 2017)
superb for travel use Review by kaz_king
Ease of Use Value Quality Website Information ComfortThis little machine worked a treat on my recent business trip. It did exactly what it is supposed to do and boy oh boy did it make a difference to the weight of my suitcase. It is, as mentioned in the advert, noisier than my big machine but it didn't keep me awake at all so no problem.(Posted on 25 August 2017)
Excellent for traveling Review by Greenie
Quality Website Information Comfort Ease of Use ValueGreat for travelling which I need to do for work.(Posted on 6 August 2017)
One area to improve. The website should make it clear need that for the first order need letter from Doctor to confirm the need.
On the plus side the customer service is excellent. I had a minor issue which was sorted quickly and efficiently/
Easy to use, if a little noisy. Review by MartinG
Quality Website Information Comfort Ease of Use ValueThe unit is a little noisier than my permanent CPAP but that's more than made up for by the ease of packing and carrying it. Lighter and less cumbersome than any machine I've had before, it transforms the idea of travelling with a CPAP. I've yet to try it with the battery I bought but don't expect that to change the performance.(Posted on 19 June 2017)

Excellent product Review by Poppy
Comfort Ease of Use Value Website Information QualityThis has made life so much easier - no more carrying my main, heavier machine around on trains. I travel a lot for work and this means lighter luggage and no lugging around heavy machines and extension leads in case the hotel doesn't have a socket near the bed. Am planning on trying it for camping soon - battery lasts up to 8 hours and is amazingly light. Only downside is that it is quite noisy and I can't seem to make the ramp facility work.(Posted on 24 July 2013)
Worth every penny Review by Lynn
Value Website Information Quality Comfort Ease of UseI travel a lot for work and also plan to go wild camping in Scotland. Carrying my large Fisher Paykel CPAP on trains with all my other luggage when I am working away from home is a nightmare. Trying to go by plane is even worse - trying to take a laptop and a CPAP as hand luggage isn't worth the struggle. My partner wants to introduce me to wild camping - not possible with a large machine and a heavy battery when you have to walk miles to a campsite. The Transcend is brilliant - weighs next to nothing, is very comfortable (even without a humidifier), I don't have to get used to a new mask (it takes my old one) and the battery lasts a full night.(Posted on 7 May 2013)
