3D printing enables new generation of CPAP masks

July 23, 2014 - Comments

My friend Les Karpas, and his company MetaMason has just been featured in this article at 3ders.org.  Les and his team has been working on transforming the way CPAP masks are made for people with sleep apnea.

He's taking a very interesting approach -- using additive manufacturing's ability to make complex and intertwined shapes, along with novel uses of flexible and dissolvable materials, they hope to commercialize a process that makes highly customized CPAP masks that is much less bulky and much more comfortable to wear.

I wish them well -- this approach will have a huge impact on the growing population of sleep apnea sufferers!
