  • Publication number: 20210008320
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a patient interface for sealed delivery of a flow of air at a continuously positive pressure with respect to ambient air pressure to an entrance to the patient's airways includes collecting anthropometric data of a patient's face. Anticipated considerations are identified from the collected anthropometric data during use of the patient interface. The collected anthropometric data is processed to provide a transformed data set based on the anticipated considerations, the transformed data set corresponding to at least one customised patient interface component. At least one patient interface component is modeled based on the transformed data set.

  • Publication number: 20200353198
    Abstract: An elbow assembly for a patient interface includes a swivel component adapted to connect to a patient interface and an elbow component adapted to connect to an air circuit. The swivel component is coupled to the elbow component by a ball and socket joint and a hinge joint which allows the elbow component to pivot relative to the swivel component about a single axis.

  • Patent number: 10675430
    Abstract: Elbow assembly including a swivel component (6610) connected to a patient interface (6000) by a pair of spring arms (6650) and coupled to an elbow component (6620) by ball and socket joint and a hinge joint (6645) which allows pivoting about a single axis. Hinge joint prevents the elbow component from contacting the spring arms. Swivel component includes inner radial wall (6630) and outer radial wall (6632) defining radial channel (7633) leading to vent holes (6640) for gas washout, tracks or guide walls (7637) within the channel providing discrete flow paths to the vent holes, an inwardly extending lip or chevron (8631) redirects flow to reduce noise and/or minimize flow directly onto sensitive parts the face. Ball portion (6662) includes opposed recesses (6664) engaged with pivot pins (6645) on swivel component to form the hinge. Elbow component houses a pair of anti-asphyxia valves (6680).
