FREEDOM TO SLEEP ANYWHERE. Designed to fit today’s active lifestyle, Transcend and its revolutionary technology offer the first radical advancement since CPAPs were invented. Transcend gives you freedom you’ve only dreamed of in sleep therapy - freedom from stress, freedom of unlimited movement, and freedom to sleep anywhere you chose.
Transcend is the smallest, lightest, most portable and most practical sleep apnea therapy system available. It is perfect for traveling, whether you’re driving over the road, flying off to your next business meeting, or taking that well-deserved vacation. The Transcend CPAP is approved for use on commercial airlines by the FAA. Click here to read the Transcend FAA Compliance Letter (PDF).
Worn on the head, Transcend is quiet and vibration-free. The short hose and compact interface help prevent seal leaks and provide unlimited mobility. With Transcend, you’re free to roll over in bed or even get up and walk around - when using the optional battery without breaking the mask seal, disconnecting a hose, or sacrificing therapy.
NO POWER? NO PROBLEM. Transcend’s optional battery or mobile power adaptor lets you sleep with confidence whether you’re nestling into your tent under the stars, stretching out in your truck sleeper, or slumbering through a power outage at home.
Transcend’s heat moisture exchange technology, which is clinically proven in hospitals, provides warm, moist air to help you sleep comfortably without the aggravation of a water-filled humidifier.
And because Transcend is compatible with the most popular mask seals on the market, there’s no need to break in a new mask. Therapy compliance monitoring is a breeze too. Simply connect Transcend to your computer to download compliance data that can be emailed directly to your care provider.
Never before has sleep apnea therapy been this easy or fit your lifestyle so completely. With Transcend you have the freedom to sleep anywhere.

Please check with your medical equipment dealer to determine if your insurance can be used to purchase Transcend.
Carry your Transcend with you on your flight. As a medical device, it will not count as one of your carry-on items. Never check a sleep apnea therapy device with your baggage as it can be damaged through normal luggage handling procedures. Your doctor can provide you with a letter stating your diagnosis and the need to carry your device with you, if necessary. Be sure to call the airline in advance to clarify procedures and in-flight policies.
Yes! Transcend’s universal AC power supply makes it easy to use Transcend outside the United States. The universal power supply automatically converts the power current, so all you need to bring on your trip is a plug adaptor to fit the two prong configuration of your Transcend power supply. Plug adaptors can be found at major department and hardware stores.
Transcend is an advanced technology sleep therapy system that incorporates the device, mask and humidifier into one compact, portable, and mobile design. As a result, Transcend is very competitively priced.
The Transcend sleep therapy system comes with a two year manufacturer’s warranty.
Transcend comes with a proprietary interface that can be fitted with adaptors that are compatible with the most commonly used nasal seals, including:
• Resmed Ultra Mirage 2
• Resmed Activa LT Series
• Resmed Mirage Activa
• Respironics ComfortGel (Original) Nasal
• Respironics ComfortGel Blue Nasal
Wearing something on your head when you go to bed may take a night or two to get used to. Sleep therapy patients who have tried Transcend tell us that once you lay your head on the pillow you will hardly notice that Transcend is there. It is designed to move slightly on your head so you can move and turn in bed without breaking the mask seal.
No. Transcend automatically compensates therapy pressure to altitudes of up to 8,000 feet.
Transcend comes with a universal AC power supply and offers a battery and mobile power adaptor as options that are sold separately.
Yes! Transcend has a mobile power adaptor available that allows it to plug into the DC power outlet in your car, truck, RV, boat, camper, or wherever you choose to sleep. You can also use the DC power supply to recharge the Transcend battery pack.
You need to fully charge your battery (approximately 6-hours) before using it with your Transcend for the first time.
Yes, the Transcend battery can be recharged with the AC power supply or mobile power adaptor while delivering therapy.
A 4-cell Transcend battery pack provides sufficient power to operate the device for a minimum of 8 hours at a pressure setting of 10 cmH2O. The 8-cell battery provides power for approximately 15 hours of continuous use at the same setting. Both the 4- and 8-cell batteries are designed to accommodate more than 250 discharge/recharge cycles with standard use. Battery time averages are listed WITH the use of HME humidification.
Transcend uses patent pending heat moisture exchange (HME) technology to humidify the air during therapy. HME technology has been used for many years in hospitals for patient ventilation, but Transcend is the first sleep therapy device capable of using this method of humidification. During therapy, a small and hygenic HME captures heat and moisture from your exhaled breath to provide warm, moist air when you inhale. This eliminates the need for a traditional heated humidifier and all the problems that come with it.
Different people require different levels of humidification. The HME should be replaced once you feel you are no longer receiving adequate humidification. Generally, this will be about once a week. Your Transcend system comes with four HMEs. Replacements can be ordered from your dealer.
At this time, the HME is not reimbursable by insurance.
There are not. Transcend has been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and found safe for everyday use. In addition, Transcend uses advance blower technology that all but eliminates friction and heat generation. You will feel no heat or vibration from Transcend.
Transcend is not noisy, but the sound you will hear from Transcend is 2% to 5% louder than that generated by the leading selling CPAP. Most patients, or their bed partners, do not find this to be objectionable, but it is an important point to consider when thinking about purchasing Transcend.
