Acurest's Custom CPAP Mask Now Available for Sleep Apnea Sufferers in the U.S.
Date:5/31/2011

DALLAS, May 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Acurest, the world's only provider of custom-made Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) nasal masks for the treatment of sleep apnea disorder, announced that the solution is now available to sleep apnea sufferers in the U.S. Made specifically for each individual from the mold of the patient's face, Acurest's TrueFIT™ Custom Mask features hypo-allergenic materials which will not produce skin reactions, is leak free and fits comfortably, allowing for ease of movement during sleep. The new mask lasts three times longer than off-the-shelf masks.

For Robert Couch, a sleep apnea sufferer who resides in Irving, Texas, purchasing the TrueFIT™ Custom Mask from Acurest proved life-altering.

"I was deep into my stages of sleep apnea and was resigned that I would have to undergo multiple intrusive surgeries that were not guaranteed to work," said Couch. "I continued to purchase uncomfortable, leaking masks which forced my wife to sleep in another room so she could get rest at night. The first morning after using the mask, I woke up refreshed and for the first time in years, felt like I finally knew what a good night's sleep was."

"Sleep apnea, a condition that occurs when the upper airway collapses during sleep which then causes the sufferer to stop breathing, has been tied to heart attacks, strokes and even death in severe cases," said Acurest Managing Director, Scott Coulter. "TrueFIT™ delivers the solution, many say salvation, from these terrible consequences and allows sleep apnea sufferers to get back to a healthier lifestyle."

Derived from a long collaboration between CPAP users, technicians and engineers, Acurest was formed in 2008 to further develop custom-made solutions as an alternative to conventional off-the-rack masks that often do not fit correctly . After specific refinements, the TrueFIT™ Custom Mask now represents the state of the art in custom-fitted nasal CPAP mask design and enjoys a growing reputation as the CPAP mask of choice among sufferers.

"Since 1964, I have been studying and treating patients who suffer from sleep apnea," said neurologist and credentialed sleep physician, Dr. John Lawrence Corbett. "Everything patients voice to me that they want: comfort and effectiveness, the TrueFIT™ Custom Mask provides. It's apparent that the attention to detail, implementation of user feedback, integration of medical innovations and engagement with renowned prosthetics company, Medical Art, make the mask the best product on the market."

Acurest has partnered with Dallas' Medical Art Prosthetics to build state of the art, revolutionary, TrueFIT™ masks that are contoured to each individual and provide maximum sleep satisfaction.  Customized masks can be found by visiting www.acurest.com.au and clicking on the TrueFIT™ Custom Mask tab.
