Weinmann CPAPs?
#1
Are the Weinmann devices not FDA approved or available in the US?

Apparently not. I couldn't find any reference to US sales. NZ and Germany and a few other countries.

If you go to their website and read up about their nasal pillow mask, they expect it to last 1 year.

I guess they are much more advanced than Resmed's technology which Resmed admits only lasts 15 days per set of pillows Smile
Started APAP 4-20, Closed range to 7.5-14, then straight 8.0 w/ Aflex 3
RDI always below 1. But sleep much much better at straight pressure.
Started on F10, Tried Quattro Air successfully. Finally settled on P10.

To me, it looked a lot smaller than the S-10 Resmed and has a nice touch screen display - that puts out a lot more info on that screen than what I've seen available here.

They are made in Hamburg. Getting approval in other countries can be expensive.
Perhaps it is a market driven decision to not try to get approval in places like the US when PR an RM have such a large market share.

Could be, but I would guess that one of the biggest national markets for CPAPs would be the US and even a small part of that market would be big $$, especially if the fixed costs of R&D and production had already been covered by European sales. I guess the regulatory burden may be too great, or they may already be selling everything they can make. without big new capital expenditures.
