The reselling value of such a machine would drop significantly.

RE: New skins to your cpap
Some people might like to have a custom appearance for a machine so it looks less medicinal. For $30 this seems like an idea that some people may want, and the skins can be removed or peeled off. It looks like you can upload your own image or use a standard pattern. If a custom appearance is what floats your boat, this is a great idea.

RE: New skins to your cpap
There is an old saying-"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" If someone chooses to decorate their CPAP, then fine. It's their money. But as a long-time apnea patient (about 32 years now) ,I have never had any wish to change the appearance of any of the some 5 or 6 machines I have owned.So long as the device is functional and relieves my apnea, I will be quite content .

If I remember correctly, the one major "skin" company only supported the S9 series and had nothing for the S10 series.

I am not a fan of stickers or skins on electrical devices because they may change the heat transfer characteristics of the original cover material.

If you wanted a bedroom decor I can see how these would be a dandy idea. You could even change skins when you redecorate.

RE: New skins to your cpap
Found their website and they do look interesting. What would really be nice is someone to invent an easily accessible cover to stop the cats from walking on the machine and turning it ON/OFF. We managed to find a fix for my wife's Dreamstation, but it is real difficult finding the right length for the AirSense. May get a friend to mack a custom one out of plexiglass.  Oh, and putting it in a drawer isn't really an option.  Smile

Homer, I use a drawer, but you can use any small box or plastic container with a strip of tape or Velcro to act as a hinge, and cover the power button.  Just flip it down and the button is covered. Flip it up to access the button.

Challenge on the Airsense is the hose attaches directly behind the power button (at least on mine). I have already sent some measurements to a friend to make a cover for me. I tried a kleenex box with the appropriate cut out and the box got knocked on the floor by one of the cats. Our middle one is the culprit especially around 4 in the morning. :-)

Take a look on Amazon for a Black Clear Plastic Push Button Switch Guard Protector for $8.82. Dimensions are 1"x 0.8" x 0.6"(L*W*H). Looks like it might be a good fit.
