ResMeds S9 Series high-tech medical device ensure patients a healthy and restful nights sleep
Millions of people worldwide, who suffer from the debilitating effects of sleep apnea, will benefit from a new device to treat the health condition, thanks to an innovative technology partnership between ResMed and STMicroelectronics. ResMed’s multi-award winning S9 Series offers the capabilities of a high-tech medical device, coupled with cutting-edge, yet easy-to-use design to ensure patients experience a healthy and restful night’s sleep. An example of such collaboration is the S9 Series’ integrated microchip technology, provided by STMicroelectronics. The technology provides sensing support to help automatically control the air pressure needed by the patient; it also allows for extensive data logging and a color LCD screen to help make the device easy-to-use.
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy is recognized as the most effective non-invasive treatment for the majority of cases. With this therapy, a bedside device gently delivers pressurized air via a mask to keep the upper airway open and prevent obstruction. ResMed’s multi-award winning S9 Series was recently recognized internationally with a red dot design award, and is currently on display in Singapore’s red dot award museum.
