Delighted to be introducing this cost-effective Nasal Mask which is a quality German mask by Löwenstein and is virtually indestructable!
This new Cara CPAP Nasal Mask by the reputable German company, Löwenstein Medical, whilst cost-effective, this in no way is at the expense of quality, and in fact it you view the videos you can also have a couple of minutes of entertainment watching how virtually indestructable the mask is! Apart from winning an award, the mask has proven to be so popular that Löwenstein have also now brought out a full face version for mouth breathers.
Very light mask with soft cushioning.
Although there is a forehead support, it only gently rests on the forehead, and some people will find it actually doesn't need to touch the forehead at all. The arm to the forehead support has been designed at an angle quite a way from the face, and it may also be possible that there is enough space behind this arm to wear reading glasses (although people may wish to remove them before sleep in which case they would need to release the upper part of the mask's headgear).
Very cost-effective compared to the market price of quality masks.
There are no clips needed to the upper part of the headgear, and there are 2 different options for feeding the upper straps through the slots, depending on which works best.
The lightweight CARA mask features a softly supple cushion with exact fit, a quiet diffuse exhalation system and other details that make life easier.
Advantages of CARA:
The first impression is good and lasting. The soft and supple mask cushion fits snugly and hugs the contours of the face, making it optimum for long wearing comfort even without a forehead cushion.
The exhalation system located near the ball-and-socket joint has proved itself over the years. The slotted openings yield a diffused air flow that does not disturb patient or bed mate whilst the closed upper area prevents air from flowing toward the patient’s eyes. The system has been perfected in the CARA family of masks. The limited number of parts simplifies operation, reduces the mask’s weight and relieves the strain on the environment with less material production and disposal.
The Cara Nasal Mask is available in either XS, S/M or M/L and comes complete with the headgear and lower strap clips.
There is no downloadable template, but the cushion sizes are as follows:-
Sorry to say this mask was rather disappointing the headgear strap was ill fitting and very flimsy.I could only recommend this to be purchased as a spare for use in a emergency.It was cheap,but still poor value for money

We're sorry too on hearing the mask doesn't suit you, as unfortunately what mask works for one person doesn't always work for another. Please contact us direct if you would like any advice.
The headgear is comfortable but i find the mask leaks a lot, compared to other similar nasal masks I have used. The soft, flappy silicone edge that seals against your skin does not appear to be wide enough to create a secure seal. The slightest movement causes it to leak. The actual nasal bit is made of flexible plastic instead of regid plastic. I find this inadequate.I have a small nose so use the XSmall size which is a good overall fit for me.I will not buy this mask again.
Sorry to hear the mask hasn't proved as beneficial as you'd hoped, which is always a risk when we have to purchase online without being able to try them first. It could even be that you needed the next size up as masks aren't dependent upon the size of the nose, but it's important they fit the width securely. It would be worth trying a liner to see if that helps though. Thanks for your honest review.
Loving this new mask. Fit is perfect and comfortable.

We try our best to ship all orders received by us Monday-Friday on the same working day if received before 12 noon, and more often than not orders processed before 3 pm will be despatched the same day whenever possible. Weekend or UK bank holiday orders are sent out the next working day. An automated email is sent when products have been despatched so please check your spam box and add us to your safe senders list. Also, if you do not receive an email confirmation, please check that you have typed the correct email address in your account.
All orders are sent via 1st class mail within the UK. Masks and some other more expensive products are always sent via 'signed for' insured delivery and cannot be left in 'safe' places, but there is the option for an alternative shipping address when processing the orders. International orders are sent via tracked Airmail, and whilst we're happy to ship internationally, we cannot be held responsible for any charges that may be added in your own country.
Delivery charges are worked out automatically by weight and you can clearly see the delivery charges before purchase. On the rare occasion delivery charges are miscalculated by the website, a refund will be sent, as it is not our policy to make money on postage charges and neither do we add the cost of delivery into the price and offer so-called 'free delivery' like some sites and Ebay pressurise sellers to do!
Wherever possible with larger parcels, we try to re-use boxes to keep shipping costs down and protect the environment.
If a product is out of stock and the order contains multiple items, the 'in stock' items will be sent immediately and further items will follow upon arrival with no further postage charges incurred.
Masks and most products cannot be exchanged, unless faulty, due to health and hygiene issues, in accordance with the Consumer Contracts Regulations, (as stated in our 'Terms and Conditions' ) and where you will find our return address, so if you are unsure about any product please contact us BEFORE purchase or BEFORE opening a sealed packet.
Unopened (sealed) products in their original packing can be returned within 14 days for a refund of the product cost, but the purchaser is to pay the return postage, and we would advise retaining proof of postage. This excludes any faulty goods, for which postage will be reimbursed. A full refund for the price of the product will be issued when received by us, less the original postage charges when the order was sent to you.

If you are purchasing with the intention of re-selling any products, you are liable to pay VAT on all products so you must untick the 'zero rate eligibility' box which will add VAT to your order.
