The ResMed S9 is a uniquly designed sleep apnea device and only because of this the device ResMed S9 won a Red Dot design award last year.

Michael Farrell, senior vice president at ResMed’s global sleep strategic business unit, said: “Great design in medical devices should combine good looks, innovation and user-friendliness, as well as address an unmet medical need.”

The device uses special quality plastics in its manufacturing. This is called the ” Cycoloy polycarbonate/acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (PC/ABS) resin”.Sabic Innovative Plastics is the company that manufactures the “Lexan and Cycoloy materials” that have been used in the making of the award-winning ResMed S9 series of sleep apnea devices.

Sabic’s Cycoloy polycarbonate/acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (PC/ABS) resin is used to mould the complex, thin-wall S9 chassis. The high-flow material uses a non-halogenated flame retardant.

The tough Sabic Lexan polycarbonate is biocompatible and has a high-quality surface finish. It is used for the S9 top case and also in ResMed’s H5i humidifier flip lid.

The company says: “These new devices are designed with the SABIC Lexan and Cycoloy resin materials to be unobtrusive in the home – looking more like a clock radio or stereo than a piece of medical equipment.”
