FitLife Headgear Replacement
One of the more unique CPAP masks available, the Respironics FitLife extends around your whole face rather than just your nose and mouth, reducing the pressure on your nose and cheeks that may arise from other CPAP masks. During use, the flow from your machine will inflate your cushion to form a perfect seal around your face helping to reduce leaks and improve your therapy. The headgear is ergonomic and will fit on the back of your head, resting comfortably and holding your mask in place.
Ergonomic CPAP Mask Headgear
Fitting snuggly on the back of your head, the FitLife headgear was designed by Respironics to hold your mask firmly in place to help eliminate CPAP mask leaks which can have negative effects on the treatment for your sleep apnea therapy. The straps cross your head in an X pattern and will help relieve itching and discomfort.
- X crossing pattern for itch free use
- Secure your CPAP mask in place to reduce leaks
- Reduces pressure on the nose and cheeks with a total face design
The large sized headgear will work with the large cushions, while the small size was designed for the small cushion. Know what size of cushion you originally ordered when purchasing a new headgear to make sure that the mask fits correctly.

How often should I change my CPAP mask headgear?
If a clip is broken, or your headgear is seeing sings of wear and tear that negative effect your therapy, its time to change the headgear. Always pay attention to your seal, and if your machine tracks mask leaks, check that number frequently to determine whether or not you need to replace your headgear or CPAP mask cushion.
What is the benefits of using a total face CPAP mask?
As with any mask, its all about comfort and performance for the user. Some individuals may struggle to wear full face or nasal masks due to unwanted pressure on the face, in which case total face masks may be preferred.
I'm very happy with my order and it came right on time. The picture above show you exactly what you're getting. It may seem cheaper on other sites but
that's because they're selling non-padded straps. Non-padded straps are painful, while padded straps are not. Of course, as soon as my order arrived I located my missing headgear. I had washed it and hung it in my sun room to dry and then never saw it again until after my order arrived I noticed something like my missing headgear sticking out from behind a big bush. Even though I had searched outdoors before, I had never searched while the wind was blowing all the bushes to kingdom come! I could never have imagined that my dog had jumped up and stolen my headgear from a clothes line and then had cleverly buried it behind a huge bush . Had the wind not been blowing so much that day I might have concluded that my missing headgear had vanished into thin air.
I find the headgear to be very comfortable, however it is made of a foam like product that probably makes it soft and comfy, this stuff is not long wearing, and tends to come apart though. It also has the cheesiest velcro I have ever seen, and starts to slip, and then utterly refuses to hold in as little as 1 month. Washing/cleaning tends to shorten the life of the velcro. So if you like the Fit life as I do, you'll need to buy extra headgears. By 6 months when most insurances would approve you for another they are usually worthless. Perhaps this is a me only kind of thing, maybe I am too oily,or wrong oily?
I find this headgear very comfortable, however my only issue with it is that it stretched way too easily. This usually then requires replacement every 3 months of so.
Love the mask though so won't be changing just for this reason.
Ive been using this Fitlife Full face cpap mask for a year and half now and and Ive never had to her a replacement headgear until now. The fabric of this headgear is comfortable and It doesnt feel so awkward wearing it with my mask like others do and I really like the feeling. I didn't expect the lifespan of this headgear to be so long.
