How is it already February? 2015 slow down, I have places to be!
Where are you hoping 2015 will take you? Looking for a way to lighten your travels?
Whether you’re catching a flight to visit family, jumping in your car on a road trip, or cruising somewhere exotic – having a lightweight CPAP can make for a better trip. If you’re on the search for a new machine, I recommend checking out the Z1 Auto Travel CPAP, which was recently released to the market.
This device is crazy small. It’s 6.5 inches long and only weighs 6.5 ounces (not counting the power cord- still, only about 10 ounces combined). This machine is the smallest, lightest Auto CPAP available. If you really want to feel liberated, treat yourself to the optional integrated PowerShell battery.
All said and done the battery, machine and power cord weigh in at 27 ounces. You might still have to take off your shoes going through security, but at least the Z1 will lighten your load a bit.
In addition to it’s tiny size, the Z1 Auto also comes with a data reporting app called Nitelog. So don’t be fooled by its small size – the Z1 is good for home use, too. The app receives transmitted data from the Z1’s built-in Bluetooth chip used to wirelessly connect to a nearby iPhone or iPad. The app collects usage data and allows the user to adjust basic machine settings like the Z-Breathe pressure relief and ramp functions.
(If you’re an Android user, don’t feel left out, an app is being worked on for you, too.)
