Metamason today is delighted to announce it has been named a CES 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree for its Miia nasal CPAP mask. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories.

Miia, is the world’s first precisely fit respiratory mask for the treatment of Sleep Related Breathing disorders, such as Sleep Apnea. Metamason’s proprietary software leverages 3D scans of each patient’s face that ensures the masks will be “uniquely yours,” and it is created via 3D printing technology. Metamason is at the forefront of a broadly shifting trend in 3D printing via mass production, rather than simple prototyping.

30 Million Americans suffer from Sleep Apnea, and 85% of those newly diagnosed will be prescribed CPAP. 50% of patents abandon CPAP therapy because to date, there have predominantly been one size fits all masks that cause a range of comfort and leakage issues. No two faces or noses are the same, which makes a custom fit solution life-changing and saving.

“This acknowledgement signifies that a tide is turning towards personalized medicine by exemplifying a new relationship between the patient and the device. Our software and manufacturing methods will help move the industry beyond simple prototypes towards truly scalable and competitive methods. It is a product of a near and better future. We are excited to show the world what products are now possible through this technology,” stated Ryan Oenning, Chief Product Officer.

The prestigious CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™, the owner and producer of CES 2018, the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies, and has been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.

Metamason’s Miia mask will be displayed at CES 2018, which runs January 9-12, 2018, in Las Vegas, Nevada. A selection of honorees was also displayed at CES Unveiled New York, which featured dozens of exhibitors and networking on November 9 at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York.

Entries are evaluated on their engineering, aesthetic and design qualities, intended use/function and user value, unique/novel features present and how the design and innovation of the product directly compares to other products in the marketplace.

Products chosen as CES Innovation Honorees reflect innovative design and engineering in some of the most cutting-edge tech products and services coming to market.

CES 2018 Innovation Honoree products are featured on CES.tech/Innovation, which lists product categories, as well as each product name, manufacturer information, description, photo and URL.
