About Us

JRJ Medical Innovations was founded by 3 Registered Respiratory Therapists, all accredited by the National Board of Respiratory Care, with greater than 60 years combined experience.  JRJ Medical Innovations has extensive experience which focuses on Non-Invasive Ventilation (NIV) most commonly referred to as CPAP.  JRJ Innovations is very familiar with all “adverse effects” associated with NIV masks as it relates to sleep apnea, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and respiratory failure.  JRJ Innovations fully understands all aspects of injuries that may result from wearing these needed masks. Injuries including but not limited to Deep Tissue Injury (DTI), on the bridge of the nose and cheeks. It is for this reason the Protecta-Gel® was invented.

A patient’s discomfort while wearing any mask can have various reasons associated with it.  However, research has shown that the most common reason for discomfort is an over-tightened mask on the face. This coupled with the wrong mask size is a sure cocktail for a DTI. In the hospital setting, wounds may be caused by wearing the Non Invasive ventilation (NIV) or CPAP masks frequently or for long periods of time (greater than 24 hours).  Although this is a realized issue for many patients, JRJ Innovations embraced the challenge to formulate a true solution. This resulted in the invention of the Protecta-Gel®.

Mission Statement


Protecta-gel mask protection.
  • I have been using the Protecta-Gel® for about a month and a half. I am no longer having leakage or facial soreness. This device makes wearing my mask a comfortable experience. I would definitely recommend it to CPAP users.

  • It has worked very well for me. I have a wide, high bridge and was constantly getting leaks at the side of my nose. This item goes a long way towards stopping leaks...I will be interested in seeing how long it lasts since now that I have something that works, I will want to keep using one. Thanks

  • I wear my protecta-gel consistently, it cushions my mask great! I have also worn it even when traveling overseas. In addition, I recommended your product to 2 of my friends that wear CPAP masks. I will be reordering soon.
