Revolutionary Headgear

This mask includes a new technology created by Fisher & Paykel called AutoFit, an innovative feature that makes mask fitting simple to do for all CPAP users. Its design replaces the traditional side straps of other masks and instead has a stretch-to-fit design, allowing patients to easily stretch the headgear over their heads. Once the headgear is sitting properly around your head, its touch-to-adjust feature only needs one touch to seal it in place. This headgear design lessens the chance of a user incorrectly fitting their mask, promoting a successful and comfortable treatment. 

One-touch Adjustment

A CPAP patient can adjust their mask to their preferred fit by sealing their cushion under their nose with one gentle push. The AutoLock technology incorporated into this mask securely holds the mask in place all night long while a user sleeps. Because of this design, users can move around in their sleep and still have a secure fit.

Minimal Parts

Thanks to its innovative design, this mask consists of only a few parts, making it easy to clean and maintain on a regular basis to ensure optimal performance. 

F&P myMask™ App

The Fisher & Paykel Solo Nasal Mask has a companion application called myMask, downloadable from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. This user-friendly app provides support to a CPAP user setting up their mask. It also has educational video instructions, mask-fitting tips, and ongoing support.

Customer Reviews of the Solo Mask

I tried this mask for several nights. I was intrigued by the design and the look of comfort, but I wear a Full-Face mask nightly. I decided to try it anyway and use a Chin Strap. The mask cushion is very soft and comfortable. It is easy to adjust and put on, which allows you to get to sleep without too many things to clip or adjust. I like the mask design and think I may be a Nasal mask wearer now. - Review by Karen


I like the look and design of the Solo mask. I was worried that the headgear felt a little loose on initial placement, but the way it's designed kept a really good seal after minor adjustments of the back straps. The headgear itself is soft and comfortable. I am used to wearing a nasal mask that goes over the bridge of my nose and was pleasantly surprised at the seal and ability to still be active (clear line of sight) while having the mask on. Ease of use, great seal, very nice mask. - Review by Holly

 

I've used the Solo for a couple of nights. It is similar to the N30, but with better headgear. I love how it can pull back in order to adjust it and then return to normal so you get a good seal. While I normally use a Large, I actually had to use Medium. That's an indication that this mask runs true to size. I think that 85%+ will be able to wear this mask in a Medium. I'm a side-sleeper and the mask never became dislodged. I also found the mask to be pretty quiet. This is going to be a good mask for people! - Review by Anthony
