Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN (June 16, 2011) – Battery packs are now available for Transcend, the new wearable sleep apnea therapy device designed to be the ultimate travel CPAP. A convenient optional power source, the packs are available in 4-cell and 8-cell sizes.
Battery life for the packs will depend on the pressure setting and breathing patterns of each individual user. The 4-cell battery pack will power Transcend for approximately 7 to 9 hours and the 8-cell battery pack will power Transcend for approximately 14 to 16 hours. The battery packs may be charged with AC line power or with a mobile power adaptor and must be fully charged before the first use. Charge time for the 4-cell may take five hours; the 8-cell may take as much as eight hours.
In addition to being used as a power source, the battery packs serve as a power source backup when used with AC line power. Should the power go out, Transcend will continue to provide patients with therapy.
Transcend battery packs come with adjustable chest and arm straps. Patients may choose to strap the battery pack to their chest or arm, or simply put it under their pillow.
