Best of all, an open line of sight makes for reading a book or watching the telly a breeze before bed. This mask is truly a win-win.

The frame are available in three sizes: Small, Medium, and Large however as with most mask on the market a majority of users will find that the Medium size fits perfectly.

Where Dreams Come True
The DreamWear frame was dreamed up by an innovative mind. With a silicone style tube frame, the air flows through and into the nasal cushion. There are so many active sleepers out there and people who tend to favor sleeping on one side compared to the other. This frame accommodates any sleeper with the intention on achieving the perfect seal and maintain sufficient airflow throughout the process. You don't have to worry about favoring one side or the other as there is no diminished performance as the entire airflow from the machine to mask will be directed to the other side that is not being laid on. Worried about skin irritation from Silicone? Respironics has you covered with wraps that are included to be put onto the frame which will help prevent it.
Rather than go directly inside your nose to create a proper seal the DreamWear cradles itself right under your nose providing an even airflow through both nostrils. Wave Goodbye to potential sores in your nose and let the irritation on the bridge of your nose be an afterthought. You'll wonder what took so long for this mask to make it's arrival.
Old School Design/New School Feel
The DreamWear utilizes the elbow connector on top of the head rather than in front of the face which allows the CPAP tube to be positioned above your head while you sleep rather than in front of you. The end result? Less drag and tug with in turn gives you greater flexibility to move around without the loss of seal. Active sleepers can rejoice now that there is freedom to move around without any negative impact no matter the position you find best to sleep in.
