Bob Rutan’s Notebook – MedTrade Mementos

Here we are at the 2015 Show in Atlanta, Georgia!

Dave and Dena, Adam, Bob and Debbie, and clinical support person Peter Allen are having fun talking with doctors, therapists, clinicians and students about how RemZzzs® is the answer for CPAP patient compliance! Peter will be the featured speaker at a breakout session Wednesday morning, on the very same topic of Compliance.

This year RemZzzs® is debuting a new Liner for the Respironics Amara View mask, and a brand new look for our product box. This redesigned box will be great for retail; featuring a slot for hanging up to display. It may still get a few “tweaks” as we are asking folks for their feedback and suggestions.

Another enjoyable part of being at Medtrade is the time spent networking over an evening meal. Tonight while dining at “Ted’s Montana Grill” on Ted Turner Ave, we had the pleasant surprise of sitting at a table next to none other than former owner of CNN, Ted Turner, and what appeared to be his family. I snapped a pic of co-workers Dave and Dena…and also got Ted in the background!

Maybe I should’ve asked him if he wore CPAP…

Check out our video about Carl Eller and his experience using RemZzzs® with his CPAP therapy! Carl is an NFL Hall of Famer who played with the MN Vikings in the 60-70s. He was one of the legendary “Purple People Eaters!”

Bob Rutan

Inventor of RemZzzs® CPAP Mask Liners, the innovative solution for CPAP mask discomfort, air leaks and non-compliance. RemZzzs® was listed as one of the top ten finalists of the 2015 Medtrade Spring Innovative Products Awards, sponsored by Homecare Magazine. In March 2007, his wife was struggling to continue CPAP therapy for her moderate-to-severe OSA (obstructive sleep apnea), and Robert was desperate to find an answer for her. After much thought and prayer, he awoke one night with the idea of a fabric gasket to stop air leaks and increase comfort. By Jan. 2009 this “idea” became a reality when RemZzzs® became available online as the first-of-a-kind mask liner accessory. RemZzzs® is sold nationwide online and via Home Medical Supply stores. Internationally, distributors in Australia, Europe and Canada sell to their respective markets. Robert Rutan holds a patent on the product in the USA, Australia, Canada, China, Israel, and Mexico; with patent pending status in EU and several other countries. Mr. Rutan travels across the USA, speaking, presenting and demonstrating the use of RemZzzs® to doctors, nurses, sleep techs and individuals. His passion is to help people find success with their CPAP therapy.
