Sleep apnea affects over 100 million people worldwide, while only a fraction of those actually use a CPAP mask like their doctors recommend. That is because most of those devices either involve a mask, a cord or a hose to get tangled up in. They can also cause distractions while falling asleep or cause embarrassment in front of partners. Overall, the sleep therapy devices currently on the market are simply impractical.

The DreamWear CPAP mask is comfortable and cordless, wirelessly connecting to a device that controls it from the bedside table, the 'DreamStation.' This device also sends the patients' doctors information about their sleep patterns and how well the device is working for them. Finally, Philips' DreamMapper program is an online platform that gives reminders, information and motivates people to use their devices and get better sleeps.
