(self) Improved headgear for Airfit P10 Mask
Previously I had small but long duration leaks with the Airfit P10.
Cleaned the headgear all 5 days with hot water and washing powder from hand.
I also used the clips to shorten the headgear, the resulats were "mixed".

I cut a pice from an old headgear an replaced it with some quality elastic tape like this:
Commercial Link Removed. Instead, google search Super Elastic 7M tape.
--> The force to strech this tape fells more linear than the Resmed tape.

The total lenght is now a bit longer than a stock "laundered" one. The new elastic tape needs a little bit more force to strech.

Now I clean also everyday befor bed with a towel the entry from the nose with hot tap water, without soap.

- 95% Leak rate: 0.0 l/min in a scope of 14 days!
- Slighty lower (30 to 50%) and more steady AHI.
- The hair from the backside are in the morning not "constructed" Rolleyes

Hi Zelda, how did you attach the ends of the new tape to the existing headgear straps?  Thank you.

I put the elastic tap with a help from a  tweezer about 10mm inside the hose.
Then I sew it with about 8 stitches.
