Sleep apnea patients who want the freedom to sleep anywhere can try Transcend for 30 days. If they're not completely satisfied for any reason, they can return it to the dealer for a refund.
Minneapolis, MN (Vocus/PRWEB) April 04, 2011
Through April 30, 2011, Somnetics, LLC is partnering with participating medical equipment dealers to offer sleep apnea patients a chance to try the Transcend Sleep Apnea Therapy System through a 30-day money-back guarantee.
Virtually unheard of in the CPAP industry, sleep apnea patients will be able to test-drive Transcend for 30 days before committing to the purchase of the CPAP. If customers are unsatisfied with Transcend for any reason, they may return Transcend to the dealer from which they purchased it within 30 days of the original purchase date for a full refund.
Transcend is a new wearable sleep apnea therapy device designed to be the ultimate travel CPAP. It overcomes hurdles associated with using a bulky, hassle-ridden traditional CPAP. Weighing about one pound, Transcend is the smallest and lightest CPAP on the market and its special features fit the travel needs of patients: it uses low power consumption, replaces the messy humidification chamber with heat moisture exchange technology, and has optional battery back-up and mobile power options for use in remote locations.
Somnetics decided to implement the return policy to encourage patients to try Transcend and to overcome patient uncertainty about the revolutionary design and technology available with Transcend—a device that is currently only available online.
About Sleep Apnea
According to the American Sleep Apnea Association, nearly 20 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea and those with obstructive sleep apnea—a condition that causes a person to stop breathing during sleep when the soft tissue in the throat collapses—tend to have high blood pressure, heart problems, headaches, and memory problems. OSA can also be linked to job impairment and motor vehicle crashes. Both men and women can develop sleep apnea, but it is more common in men, particularly middle-age men who are also overweight. Approximately half of those suffering from sleep apnea also have a snoring problem.
