The support we have received is humbling–there are over 10,000 of you who have supported our efforts! All this attention has kept us busy, but we want to take time to update you on what we have been doing as well as what to expect as we continue to develop Airing....Click here to read more.
Monday morning at 9:00 EST the Airing Indiegogo campaign officially begins. Here's how you can participate and make Airing happen for millions of sleep apnea sufferers....Click here to read more.
The short answer is $3 per Airing device, or $0.60 after insurance reimbursement. But it's important to understand the technology behind Airing to appreciate how we plan to produce the device at such a low cost per unit...Click here to read more.
What we found in our research with a non-working prototype was that the nose buds, while very comfortable, had a beneficial side effect of a slight opening of the nasal pathways. We believe that improving nose breathing will significantly reduce or eliminate mouth breathing. If a little extra help is needed, a comfortable chin strap could be used....Click here to read more.
As many of you know, we have chosen the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo to raise the necessary funds to produce the proof-of-concept prototype for Airing. Many of you have asked why we didn't go the more traditional routes like venture capital, selling the company...Click here to read more.
The Airing device does not provide a new treatment. The Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) treatment has been around and used with FDA approval for years. The Airing device merely miniaturizes existing machinery into a portable and comfortable format. We hope, although we obviously cannot guarantee....Click here to read more.
Going in, we had high expectations. We wanted Airing to be inserted easily with one hand. We wanted the nose buds to form a seal within the nose that could maintain the treatment pressure. We wanted it comfortable enough to allow the user to fall and stay asleep while wearing it. And it had to remain in place through the night. We got it all....Click here to read more.
We have designed the Airing device to provide eight hours of treatment before the energy in the battery is consumed. Several design choices were made to reduce power consumption and thereby extend the run.....Click here to read more.
The Airing device has built-in pressure sensing and can adjust the micro-blower output instantaneously. This ability to respond to where a person is in the breathing cycle eliminates the need for excessive air flow. This allows more natural breathing and mitigates or may even eliminate the need for additive active humidification....Click here to read more.
Airing will be designed to match the air pressure of typical CPAP masks on the market today - up to and possibly exceeding 20...Click here to read more.
