PALO ALTO, Calif.
In a recent study entitled ‘Strategic Analysis of World Sleep Apnea Therapeutic Markets,’ Frost and Sullivan recognized InnoMed Technologies Inc.’s revolutionary facial interface, a product that can provide comfort to millions of people suffering from sleep apnea, with the 2004 Frost and Sullivan Award for Product Innovation. Since masks are a very important component of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy for sleep apnea, a comfortable mask can be crucial for patient compliance. While a number of companies have focused their efforts on developing better masks, InnoMed Technologies has excelled with the development of Nasal-Aire, a truly innovative mask. It does not require any headgear and can be worn like an oxygen canula, providing highly effective therapy.
says Frost and Sullivan industry analyst Dhiraj Ajmani. For its innovative product that can help increase patient compliance in the CPAP market, InnoMed is the recipient of the 2004 Frost and Sullivan Award for Product Innovation. The award is presented each year to the company that has demonstrated excellence in new products and technologies within its industry.
The recipient company has shown innovation by launching a broad line of emerging products and technologies. InnoMed’s’ product pipeline includes other novel products such as Nasal PAP Freestyle, a compact and comfortable interface, and the Nasal-Aire Critical Care device. Frost and Sullivan expects these products to expand the already growing market for Nasal-Aire. The company came into existence three years ago and is ISO1345-1996-certified, and the Nasal-Aire II has received its CE Mark. InnoMed’s products have found good acceptance in over 40 countries. The research-driven privately owned company is continuously developing innovative products in the fields of the rapidly growing sleep apnea and critical care markets. The simple and highly innovative, patient friendly Nasal-Aire is expected to revolutionize CPAP therapy, driving revenues for InnoMed Technologies.
