The Z1 Portable CPAP Machine: The CPAP Device for the Frequent Traveler
One of the most common difficulties faced by sleep apnea patients is traveling with their CPAP machine and accessories. Though there’s been incremental, albeit gradual, improvements in the portability of CPAP machines over the years, many patients are still understandably frustrated with the degree to which their medical equipment weighs them down. Human Design Medical, a Boston based medical equipment manufacturer, has created a change of seismic proportions to this old order with the Z1 Portable CPAP Machine. At just 10 ounces, the Z1 Portable Auto CPAP device
is evidently the lightest, most compact CPAP machine currently on the market; and with a bit of savvy marketing, it has the potential to revolutionize sleep apnea therapy, particularly for patients who are highly mobile.
Those who assume this design could only have been achieved by sacrificing technological capability are mistaken: the Z1 machine is not only extremely portable, it is also second to none in terms of technological sophistication. The device boasts features every bit as advanced as other, more cumbersome machines: for instance, the Z1 is equipped with a LCD screen which shows power level, pressure setting, ramp time and progress. Moreover, the Z1 possesses auto altitude adjusting, ZBreathe pressure relief technology and leak compensation. It is also one of the quietest CPAP machines
available, producing merely 26 dBA during operation.
The Z1 device is ideal for the traveling businessperson, the pilot, the flight attendant, or anyone else who moves around frequently. Those who love to travel for pleasure will undoubtedly find significant value in the compact design and attractive features of the Z1. Given the highly mobile nature of our culture, the Z1 CPAP machine is uniquely suited to the times; it is not unreasonable to think that it may end up becoming a mainstream choice for sleep apnea patients throughout the country.
