So I was googling how to keep my Swift FX Nasal Pillows mask on better and I found a picture of what looks like a strap you can buy to keep the headgear on more secure and stop it from riding up the back of my head while I'm sleeping. I'm sure my medium length hair doesn't help that.
I wasn't sure if that item could be found for purchase anywhere but then decided to fashion my own. So after a trip to Fabricland and paying just over $4, I picked up some heavy duty cloth strap or heavy duty ribbon (not sure what else to call it as I'm not really into sewing) and some round stick-on velcro. With my hubby's help we made an addition to the Swift FX's headgear that I hope will work well. I sewed the velcro pieces onto the strap or ribbon which may need to be replaced with heavier velcro pieces, but I'll try what I've done so far and see how it goes.
I didn't know if anyone else might be interested in this so I thought I'd post it in case it helps someone else out. You'll have to excuse how rough it looks, and you can probably see the pencil marks from where he measured it on me so I could cut the right length and also where to put the velcro pieces.
Well, I'll be back to the drawing board not because it didn't work well, cause it did! However, when I wake up in the night for a quick washroom break getting it off and back on is too much of a chore when I'm half asleep. So I have some ideas of what I might try.
So here's today's mod. I cut an old stretchy hairband that just happened to be the right size and sewed each end to the slit in the rubber band part of the Swift FX headgear, closest to where the nasal pillows attach. Then sewed some material to keep the new hairband attached to the blue velcro strap of the headgear thereby keeping the velcro band lower on the back of the head. Seems to work well and is easily put on and taken off. Will see tonight how it does for a night's wear.
