It sounds like it's doing the trick then.
Doing a quick look online, they seem to retail for a similar price, though the "MSRP" of the VPAP-ST is US$8000 while the VPAP Adapt is $4600. Retail is around $3300 depending on the package you buy. There's obviously a huge amount of market manipulation going on in this business.
