The PILAIRO™Q mask released in September 2013 takes all the best features of the ground-breaking PILAIRO™ and adds the very best feature of the ZEST Q series... the "Q".
The "Q" stands for "quiet".
The design of the Fisher & Paykel Pilairo Q™ 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 F&P Pilairo Q™ is light on the patient and big on performance. The clever design integrates a new self-inflating AirPillow™ Seal and minimalist headgear. As a result, the patient experiences freedom of movement coupled with stability they can trust.
The revolutionary AirPillow Seal and lightweight comfort of the F&P Pilairo Q™ truly puts it in a league of its own. The new Pilairo Q™ comes with both the minimalist head strap and ALSO at no extra cost, the more robust standard head strap is included with every Pilairo Q™ as an added option.
