Contour Debuts CPAP Pillows at Medtrade, ResMed Announces Revenue Boost

October 31, 2016

ATLANTA – Contour Products is bringing new products to Medtrade in Atlanta this week with the launch of two new CPAP pillows. Retailers/caretailers carrying CPAP product lines are realizing profit, with more than 18 million Americans currently suffering from sleep apnea, and this number is on the rise.

CPAP users will experience adjustable comfort with the Contour CPAPMax Pillow 2.0. The pillow features two different sides and four different heights. One side of the pillow will keep users cool with 3D mesh, while the other side features a plush traditional fiberfill pillowtop for comfort.

New and improved, the CPAP Pillow 2.0 features 50% more head area with a plush traditional fiberfill pillowtop. The pillow’s special design has side pockets to accommodate any PAP mask, reducing uncomfortable pressure on the user’s face. Plus, the CPAP Pillow’s orthopedic shape improves airway alignment and supports the spine’s natural curves.

The new pillows will be on display and demonstration, available at Contour’s Medtrade Booth, #2237. Additional support pillows and accessories will also be exhibited, such as the Kabooti Seat Cushion, Flip Pillow and Cool Air Pillow.
