[Equipment] Discoloration in Nuance Gel Pillows?
#11
Hi Paula,
You might want to try the F&P Pilairo if you have gone through P10 and Nuance. I've been using all three and the Pilairo seems to be the best for leaks and fit.

It's a one size fits all, it comes with either the Pro or regular headgear. The pro headgear is very similar to the P10 and I found it works well unless I tilt my head up whilst sleeping, which causes a leak, and by simply tilting me head down it goes away.

Using the regular headgear which is similar to the nuance prevents that problem.

The Pilairo looks more invasive than the other two masks, but for me it really works, and I don't like stuff on my face when sleeping.

Hope this suggestion helps.
Failure is NOT an option.

Nope, I love the Nuance. They fixed that back strap. And right now I am actually trying out some full face masks as I cannot get the lip leaks under control.

Paula I am still loving the Nuance, it just seems so easy.
Sadly still having mouth leaks like your good self.
If you find a nice satisfying full face mask I will be interested to hear about it.

I find with he PR products, the headgear / straps seems to be the weakest link. The headgear that came with my Fitlife was great...to start. But after a little time, I'll be laying there and the velcro lets fly. I've actually swapped my headgear for the one from a Hans Rudolph ffm and found the HR headgear to be superior.

I may mix things up again the next time I'm due for a mask...I'm one of the lucky SOB's who can use pretty much anything...maybe I'll try a Nuance and see if it stays put better than the Swift FX.
