The Amara is a popular traditional styled full face mask by Philips Respironics and since its original release they have enhanced the mask with the addition of the following:-
Included the option of a Gel Cushion, as opposed to the original Silicone Cushion. Introduced the Reduced Size Frame on all four sizes to help reduce pressure at the nasal bridge and improve seal at the chin. Added a new 10-point Fine Glider Adjuster with an extra 2 positions, ensuring it can now deliver an additional 25% of adjustment, providing more flexibility for the right fit. Now supplied in a colour printed bag made of 100% recyclable materials for improve sustainability.
Hope2Sleep's observations from personal experience are:-
- Lightweight, compared to a lot of other full face masks.
- Very easy to adjust the angle of the mask with the button forehead adjuster - you simply press the button and push or pull.
- Since the release of the newer gel mask cushion version the Amara experience is even better (and most other people find this to be the case).
- Comfortable headgear.
- Due to the fact that the cushion is extended from the actual mask frame (see pictures) when moving in bed the cushion swivels with your face, thus preventing the frame digging in and helping minimise leaks too.
- Very easy to assemble and disassemble resulting in it being easy to clean.
The Amara Full Face Mask is available in four sizes with a gel or silicone cushion.
Both cushion types offer a dual wall design which provides a comfortable, stable seal.
The Silicone Cushion offers a more traditional seal. As the air flows to the mask the thin outer silicone flap of the cushion seals against the face while the inner wall supports and stabilizes the mask position.
The Gel Cushion features the comfort and contoured fit for which gel is known. The outer gel flap conforms to the user's face while the thicker inner wall molds to the face to support and stabilize the seal.
All size cushions in both gel and silicone are compatible with the Amara frame and headgear.
The cushion snaps on and off the frame easily for cleaning and changing cushions.
Both the Gel and Silicone variations are offered as follows :-
- Petite (petite cushion + reduced size headgear)
- Small (small cushion + reduced size headgear)
- Medium (medium cushion + standard headgear)
- Large (large cushion, + standard headgear)
Spare or Replacement Mask Cushions can be purchased separately, and it is crucial to get the correct size for this mask. The cushions are generous in sizing, so please don't guess your size.
We have Sizing Gauges available for a small cost. (If you are deciding between 2 sizes it is better to go smaller with this mask).

Amara's innovative, modular design is lighter, smaller, and has significantly fewer parts than leading traditional full-face masks. In fact, it requires just a single click to disassemble and reassemble the cushion and the mask frame for quick cleaning and replacement.
Philips Respironics have redefined the full-face mask, making it easy to fit and easy to live with - plus it is designed and built to the exacting standards you would expect from Philips.
