Technology is unreal and moving at lightening speed. Imagine the backlash he would or is receiving from the cpap suppliers. He may want money, he may even be scamming, but one thing for sure, it would cost cpap suppliers dearly. Again, the mighty dollar folks. Perhaps Shark Tank to raise money? Who knows. Just food for thought.
No. I've read what he's posted, and to me, it sounds like he's read a few things about MEMS air pumps and hasn't done the math and engineering in terms of energy consumption and other practicalities about CPAP treatment. I also suspect you can't get the kind of pressure and airflow you need in MEMS pumps that would fit inside a package that small.
It's a bit like someone in the 1960's who read about transistors and imagined thinking computers. It might happens some day with this technology, but 50+ years later, we're still waiting, although we've made a lot of apparent progress.
