  • Patent number: 11878119
    Abstract: A respiratory mask system is provided comprising a respiratory mask and a head engaging portion, wherein the head engaging portion is configured to couple to the respiratory mask to engage a wearer's head via a disengageable mechanism. The disengageable mechanism may comprise a linking member attached to the head engaging portion, a disengagement member attached to the respiratory mask and configured to receive the linking member, wherein the disengagement member is configured to be moveable between a first position and a second position, a control configured to allow a wearer of the mask to move the disengagement member towards the first position and one or more surfaces defined by the disengagement member and configured to exert a frictional force on the linking member.

  • Publication number: 20230263983
    Abstract: A respiratory mask includes a frame and a cushion module. The frame can include a front wall having a vent and/or a gas inlet opening and a collar extending away from the front wall. The collar surrounds the vent and/or the gas inlet opening. The cushion module comprises a cushion and a housing, which is made of a material more rigid than the cushion. The housing defines a connection opening. A friction coupling selectively couples the cushion module to the frame and comprises an elastomeric friction member coupled to a portion of the housing that defines the connection opening. In some arrangements, an outer surface of the friction member is exposed when the cushion module is coupled to the frame. In some arrangements, the housing extends through the peripheral surface.

  • Publication number: 20210213231
    Abstract: A headgear connector is provided for connecting a user interface to a headgear strap. The headgear connector comprises a headgear receiving passage configured to receive a headgear strap from a first direction and to enable the headgear strap to loop back onto itself in a second direction substantially opposed to the first direction, and a gripping element configured to grip a portion of the headgear strap to secure the headgear strap with respect to the user interface. Headgear is also provided.
