Forma Full Face Mask - With Headgear
Fisher and Paykel designed the Forma with your comfort in mind. The Forma full face mask is built with an inner foam cushion that contours around your face for a secure and comfortable fit. The outer seal of the Forma Full Face CPAP Mask is silicone, allowing for a leak resistant surface, while the headgear comes with forehead support and two straps. One strap wraps around your forehead, and the other tucks under your ears. The two straps attach in the back for a secure fit, ensuring that you're able to toss and turn without loosening the mask.
The Glider Straps secure the front of the Forma CPAP mask to the headgear. You can release the strap easily with the Easy-Release cord technology that works to let you put your mask on and take it off without needing to adjust the fit.
Comfortable Fit Without Blemishes
Fisher and Paykel's FlexiFoam cushion technology is a highly contoured silicone seal that automatically adjusts to different facial shapes. The different sized masks are built to comfortably fit faces of all shapes and sizes. As well as the cushion allowing for active contouring, it also allows a great cushion seal. In addition to this, the forehead support adds stability, helping the CPAP user to have a greater range of movement and a night of comfortable sleep.

Do I need any thing else with this mask for sleep apnea.
I have a bipap and run some pretty high pressures, this is the best mask I have found to prevent face seal leaking.
This was one of my first masks way back I prefer the resperonicss air you f20 with the foam outside but disabled fixed income so it's old faithful good mask pretty good deal durable
I am very uncomfortable in this mask. It has made marks on my nose and my forehead and even with cushioning that doesn't lessen my discomfort. The leaks are horrible and I'm sleeping worse than before I had my CPAP machine. I tried returning it to the store I purchased it but was told that all masks are painful and you'll get use to it. For me it definitely was a bad choice
I found it difficult to get mouth fit with this mask & it kept on leaking all night. I could use it well only for 2 nights when I tried to pull the strap tight, but after waking up I got marks all over my face, especially bad on the forehead. After using this for 2 weeks I decide to change for other type of full face mask.
This mask is great! I really am liking the under chin design. It fits really good and is as comfortable as any I have tried. I prefer this to the Respironics line because of the under chin design . The head pads are pretty unforgiving if you pull your mask tight . I wear a cap that covers my forhead and I am fine. Less leaks around nose and easy to wash disassemble - reassemble. Very pleased so I am buying another.
I really have no complaints with this mask. With a proper fit I find this mask to be far more comfortable than many others. The inner foam seal creates a solid spacer which keeps the mask from contacting your face.
As with all masks this one takes some adjusting to get it right.
Also the under chin support and seal style of this mask is a bit different and at first, especially with a beard or facial hair may feel like it's leaking when it really is not.. it just doesn't deal right below the lower lip like most full face masks.
As for build quality and materials used I believe F&P is setting the standard... good solid plastics and very durable headgear.
I had to replace this with a ResMed Activa LT. While there is a claim that the foam enables closure, I found that with 'medium' it closed around the nose but did not go over the chin. With the large, it got under the chin (an essential) but there was too much space alongside my nose to prevent leaks. And it was unpleasantly tight to effect any closure. I struggled initially with the ResMed Activa LT until it was pointed out to me that you leave it LOOSER and when the air starts to blow the silicon skirt is driven by air forward to a soft complete closure. When you turn in the night you will have some leaking which you may have to adjust (again by pulling it away or maneuvering sideways, not dragging it on hard.
I had ordered this mask because I did not realise that ResMed mask would also fit my F&P machine.
MY MARK IS PERSONAL, THIS MASK MAY SUIT OTHERS. THE MATERIALS ARE FINE..
