[Equipment] Nuance Pro headgear question
#1
Nuance Pro headgear question
I have a question about the gel pads on this mask. On my masks the gel pads fall out long before the mask wears out. Are these things stuck on with some kind of adhesive? Or do they slide into the slot somehow in a way that I am just not seeing? When they hit me up to buy new supplies they offer new gel pads. But I am reluctant to buy gel pads that are just going to fall off quickly. Has anyone tried to glue them back on?

That's about it. Thanks!

If your talking about the pillows you have to replace the whole pillow not just the gel part. Same with the frame. Here's a video that might help you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOfcCNvk9Mk

I've used super glue to put the pads back in.  I put on very small drops of the glue spread around the pad lip, then held the pad to the mask with light pressure for 10 or 20 seconds. Worked well until I received new replacement masks.

X2. It’s time to replace the frame when it gets to this point.

Thanks for all the replies.  My Gel Pads fall out long before the rest of the mask gets worn out.  I just thought it was curious that the people from whom I got my machine offer to sell replacement gel pads.

I joined several weeks ago and lurked, but figured that it was time to post some questions that have bothered me since I first got the machine.
