The Standard Size Headgear for Mirage Activa™ Original Nasal Mask is the Standard or Medium Size headgear that comes packaged with the Activa Nasal Mask. This headgear does not come with headgear clips. Headgear clips for the Original Activa Mask can be found here.
If you are looking for a size other than Standard, the Activa will also work with the sizes Small, Medium and Large of this headgear: ResMed Headgear Sml 16118 and Lrg 16119.
Any mask will work with any machine, with one important exception. The ResMed AirMini is only compatible with certain ResMed CPAP masks. Compatible masks for the AirMini are as follows:
When considering another CPAP, APAP or BiPAP machine from ResMed or any other manufacturer, mask compatibility extends to all brands. The AirMini uses non-standard tubing to connect the machine to the mask, and is the primary reason why other masks won't work with the AirMini. Despite this issue, many of our customers consider the AirMini to be an excellent machine.
Yes. Federal law requires we have a valid prescription on file before we ship your mask, machine, humidifier, or EPAP therapy, including Provent and Bongo RX. You will also need a prescription to purchase the Nightbalance POSA device.
We provide many easy ways to get your prescription:

Masks should be washed daily with warm water and gentle soap or baby shampoo. Let the mask air dry. Never use antibacterial soap as it will break down the silicone of the mask cushion. Avoid soaps that include lotion which can coat the mask and cause it to lose its seal. A safe cleaner is the Control III Disinfectant CPAP Cleaning Solution. Remember, going to bed with a clean face will improve your seal and protect the lifespan of your mask.
The best time to clean your mask is in the morning after use. This removes the oils left behind from your skin which can reduce the lifespan of your mask. We recommend using Mask Wipes to make daily morning cleaning easy. The mask wipes are made from materials that will not break down your mask.
For customers who want to completely disinfect their mask and accessories, there's an even better option than wipes. The Lumin Mask and Accessories Cleaner uses powerful UV light to disinfect, killing almost all bacteria almost instantly. It's not a cleaner and doesn't scrub or wash anything, but for simple disinfecting the Lumin works great!

I got my order from CPAP.com in a timely manner. The headgear was exactly what I ordered, and it... seems better than the original! Of course, it's been several years since I got my machine, and this is the first replacement I've ordered. With the convenience of CPAP.com, I won't wait so long for the next replacement. more...
I have used this headgear for several years and it is very comfortable. I would give it a higher rating... except for one which became unusable because the straps would not remain attached. more...
It never occured to me that my headband would wear out, despite the fact that I was holding it together... with safety pins. I love the new band and will never wear a worn out one again. It's wonderfully comfortable more...
I have tried generic headgear for the mirage activa mask and nothing compares to the original headgear.
Better than headgear purchased under cpap brand. Well constructed of what appears to be quality material.
as i expected, been using this product for 4 years
Good as the original one. I used the original for three years, this one seems like thwe straps might be... a bit shorter, but that's not an issue. I would recommend it. more...
Good quality, really pricey. If it weren’t for the price I would have given it 5 stars.
works better than any generic headgear
I have had this headgear for over two years. I washed it by hand and air dried it. ... I use it every day and finally had to change it due to one of the velcro tabs inability to hold. I see no need to replace the items until I have to do so. more...
I have used the Mirage Activa Mask and original headgear for at least five years. I find it the most... confortable and easily adjustable mask in my experience after using at least two other bubble type masks. It sits lightly on my face without needing to have the headgear too tight. Thus my face is usually free from noticable pressure marks. I do try to keep the hose to CPAP machine positioned to facilite the mask position. The CPAP machine is on a bookcase headboard above and to the side a bit, which helps with keeping the mask positioned properly. more...
