We would sincerely like to thank everyone who registered and those of you selected to participate in this CPAPtalk Product Challenge. With the Fourth Product Challenge, we felt CPAP users wanted insight into the differences between two of the most common nasal masks on the market.
The Fourth Product Challenge was initiated by CPAPtalk.com to uncover the differences between the Ultra Mirage II Nasal Mask and the ComfortGel Nasal Mask. Leave it to the users of CPAPtalk.com to explain why ResMed was able to keep such loyal customers. The 50 participants' detailed responses were excellent and we strongly encourage you to read them all. Our goal is to provide manufacturers with unbiased trials in hopes that the industry develops and improves CPAP interface products. Some of our own observations are summarized at the bottom of the results page.
50 current users of the Ultra Mirage II Nasal Mask were selected from over 570 enrollees to receive a complimentary ComfortGel Nasal Mask. After a two week trial period participants were asked to fill out a detailed survey. The Challenge was administered in a professional and impartial manner with rules against manufacturer contact and discussions or disclosures presented on CPAPtalk.com during the trial period. The software powering each Product Challenge is designed to collect and compile results in an automated fashion to ensure they are not tampered with and are free of result compilation errors.
We believe that each Product Challenge is an industry changing event. It allows CPAP users to make their voices heard. It provides the CPAP industry with a standardized measure of patient product satisfaction. We envision a future where we have conducted Product Challenges on many CPAP products. Results from these trials will give CPAP users better information on product quality and comfort levels and hopefully give manufacturers valuable feedback about their products and ways to improve them.
Challenger slots for the rest of the year are filling up quickly. CPAP manufacturers interested in scheduling a challenge are asked to contact us promptly. We will announce future results through this CPAP.com newsletter and on the Product Challenge section of CPAPtalk.com. Please check back often to enroll and receive free CPAP gear in exchange for your feedback.
