Uxbridge, MA (PRWEB) March 19, 2013
Better Rest Solutions (BRS) has donated their SoClean™ CPAP Sanitation device to the American Sleep Apnea Association (ASAA) to help support their CPAP Assistance Program. The ASAA CPAP Assistance Program recycles gently used CPAPS in order to put them into the hands of those who need therapy but do not have the means to pay for it or insurance that provides coverage.
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy is the most widely-used and most effective treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)—the life threatening disease that is estimated to affect more than 22 million Americans.
The ASAA program accomplishes two goals. The first is putting life-changing therapy in the hands of those who desperately need it. The second is to keep usable equipment from filling already crowded landfills.
BRS donated their SoClean CPAP Sanitation device to the ASAA in support of this program to help the ASAA sanitize the donated equipment effectively, killing all germs and viruses that could be living in the equipment, before the equipment would be given to a patient for use.
“Donating our SoClean to the ASAA was important to us at BRS because we were able to help the ASAA provide effectively sanitized and healthy equipment to the patients that desperately need CPAP therapy,” said Mike Schmidt, President of BRS.
Because sleep apnea is a chronic condition that requires long-term management, it also requires long-term maintenance of the equipment. With CPAP therapy comes many challenges and one is keeping the equipment clean and sanitized. Better Rest Solutions’ innovative product, SoClean automatically completes the daily chore of sanitizing a CPAP mask, hose, and reservoir without any disassembly. It uses ozone or “activated oxygen” to eliminate any mold, bacteria, and viruses it comes in contact with—safely and effectively. The SoClean utilizes this ozone to sanitize CPAP equipment and kills any bacteria or viruses that might be living in or on the end-user’s equipment and mask.
“While we are very careful to ask people donating devices that they only be ‘gently’ used, we are grateful to have the SoClean CPAP sanitizing device from Better Rest Solutions to make sure the machines we provide to people in need of therapy are in the best condition possible,” stated Edward Grandi, Executive Director of ASAA.
Many of the BRS employees either have OSA, or have a close family member that has it. They have personal insight into the condition and that insight is part of the foundation that they build their company on. They are dedicated to providing relief for fellow OSA sufferers and are proud to offer the SoClean as a way to get the most out of CPAP therapy.
