The world’s first all-cloth Positive Airway Pressure (PAP) masks
The SleepWeaver masks are designed to help people sleep and breathe in comfort. The Élan soft-cloth nasal CPAP mask is designed so the exhalation doesn't bother you or your bed partner. The exhalation holes are under the mask to match up with your natural exhalation.
Similar to other SleepWeaver masks, the Elan incorporates the revolutionary Circadiance soft-cloth technology that quietly inflates to create an airtight seal. The mask is breathable, non-allergenic and eliminates leaks, pressure points, sore spots and pinching. Designed to prevent strap marks and the open-face headgear accommodates eyeglasses and virtually unrestricted vision.

How the SleepWeaver CPAP Mask Works
SleepWeaver masks achieve a good seal and quiet operation using the properties of a balloon. When a balloon is inflated, all points inside the balloon are at the same pressure. This air pressure pushes the wall of the balloon until the tension in the wall of the balloon or something outside the balloon pushes back.
The pressure inside of the mask is the same at all points. So the pressure being applied to the patient for their CPAP therapy is the same pressure that pushes the mask against the patient’s skin. This creates a good seal between the cloth of the mask and the skin of the patient.
There is no additional pressure required to hold the mask onto the patient’s face, so there is no need for excess tension in the straps. The pressure exerted by the mask is the same at all points, so there are no localized pressure points that can create pressure sores.
