If you want your CPAP to fit around your lifestyle, and not the other way round, then the Transcend CPAP System is what you're looking for. Its incredibly compact design is complemented by a range of accessories to suit your needs. Tiny batteries, DC options, and a sturdy docking unit give you a range of options to make the Transcend your ideal CPAP companion.

Please note: This machine is now simply known as the Transcend CPAP - the 'II' has been dropped from the name. Rest assured, we only ever provide the latest versions of all of our machines.

Important Information: This is a 'fixed pressure' CPAP machine, which as the name suggests, operates at a specific pressure for the user. Before Intus can send it to you, we will need to set the machine's pressure to suit you. If you know your CPAP pressure setting (normally a sleep clinic or your Doctor would tell you your setting if you have one), please send written confirmation to us. If you do not know your pressure, your best option is to buy an Auto-CPAP instead. Any questions - please call us on 0800 024 8050!

If you choose to use PayPal Credit, once approved you can simply checkout using PayPal, and it will be one of the payment options should your order total £150 or more.

Please note: Intus Healthcare are not financially incentivised to promote this credit service and simply suggest it if you would prefer to pay with an alternative credit arrangement. The decision to apply for and use PayPal Credit is entirely yours and one Intus are unable to assist with or take any responsibility for, beyond notifying you that it is available to consider.

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.

Enjoy travelling? No problem. The Transcend has two battery options, a 12V DC Mobile Power Adapter option, AC/mains and even has a solar panel charger available (soon) to combine with either battery.

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

This 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.

The 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.

This 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.

I 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.
