I live in Israel. My wife and I were both told that we need CPAP machines. Before we had time to get them, we had to make a trip to the United States where we will be for the next three weeks.
The machines that they offered us at home were:
Hoffrichter Point 2
SEFAM Goodknight 420E
Cost was approximately $1,700.
Or we could bring back machines from the United States.
Is there any reason why it would be a bad idea to get the machines in the US if we will be living far away when we use them?
Are any of the machines which they offered us in Israel any good?
buy something online here, and you'll get two, or more, for the price of one of those clunkers.
I've not heard of any of the 3 machines you have listed.
The Hoffrichter Point 2 is a German machine. I believe the BMC Resmart is made by BMC Medical Co., Ltd. of Beijing.
What we see most often in the US are Resmed and Phillips-Respironics machines.
Federal law in the US, requires a prescription to purchase or transfer a CPAP machine.
Assuming you have a prescription, I am not aware of any tariffs or customs that would prevent you from exporting a machine from the US to Israel.
There are some suppliers on the list (see above) that ship internationally.
