The design of the F&P Pilairo was inspired by the aerodynamic flight of the world’s lightest little bird – the hummingbird. The hummingbird can rotate its fine wings in a circle; it is the only bird able to fly forwards, backwards, up, down and sideways and can hover in midair. This drove the design of a mask seal which self-inflates around the nares in a ‘hover-like way’ while providing total freedom of movement.
Weighing in as F&P's lightest nasal pillows mask (1.83 ounces/52 grams), the Pilairo is light on you and big on performance. The clever design integrates a new self-inflating AirPillow™ Seal and minimalist headgear. To help you experiences freedom of movement coupled with stability you can trust.
- Small hard shell - that covers and controls the nasal pillows. This shell stays in place at the end of your nose, almost cupping it, but with minimal headgear pressure. And the rigidity of the shell means the cushions are not dragged from side to side whenever you move, keeping them in place, and working. The remarkable thing is that the shell doesn't touch your face, so there is no "frame" pressure.
- Soft expanding base - the pillows sit on aand push even more firmly into place as the air pressure increases and the base expands. The fit is enhanced by the taper of each pillow, which ensures the best seal possible in your nostrils or nares.
- Diffuses from the elbow - the mask exhausts from the elbow, with the elbow able to do a full 360° turn, with the diffuser dispersing the air flow within centimetres.
- Short, lightweight tube - connects to your regular machine tube, and should be supported to minimise impact on mask stability during sleep, like all smaller masks.
