MURRYSVILLE, Pa. – Philips Respironics has officially launched its Philips Respironics Mask Selector, a 3D facial scanning solution that helps HME providers find the best mask fit for their patients. Each scan captures 150 frames and 15 million points of facial geography data. Philips’ proprietary algorithm can then identify the 46,200 data points most critical to provide an accurate and precise mask recommendation. “This data-driven solution can not only help DMEs and sleep labs operate more efficiently by reducing the burden and expense of a potentially lengthy mask fitting process, but also help to improve patient compliance by delivering a personalized mask specific to the individual needs of the patient,” Mark D’Angelo, sleep OSA business leader. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Philips is also offering a 2D version of the mask selector that can be used in the patient’s home that uses the same proprietary algorithm as the advanced 3D solution. Philips worked closely with providers to setup operations for the 2D offering at no added cost to help support their sleep business in a safe and effective way amid pandemic-driven challenges. This alternative self-scan solution simplifies the remote sizing process, sharing standard mask recommendations in moments and making them available to the DME for review, validation and fulfillment
