Oxygen chamber operators

Industries benefitting from oxygen therapy

A pressurised oxygen chamber operating at 1.5 bar (or 1.5 times the normal atmospheric pressure) can benefit various types of organisations and individuals for different reasons. Here are some potential beneficiaries and the rationale behind using such a chamber:

Medical facilities and hospitals
– High dose oxygen is used to treat certain medical conditions such as decompression sickness, carbon monoxide poisoning, air or gas embolism and wound healing issues.
– The increased pressure and concentrated oxygen levels can facilitate faster healing and recovery for patients with these conditions.

Sports organisations and athletic training centres
– Athletes and sportspeople may use hyperbaric oxygen therapy for recovery from injuries, inflammation reduction and enhanced overall fitness.
– The increased oxygen levels can help repair damaged tissues and reduce recovery time after strenuous physical activities.

Military and emergency response organisations
– They may also be used for the treatment of altitude sickness or other conditions related to changes in atmospheric pressure.

Research institutions and universities
– High-dose oxygen chambers can be used for research purposes such as studying the effects of increased oxygen levels on various biological processes or investigating the treatment of certain medical conditions.

The decision to use a pressurised oxygen chamber is typically driven by the specific needs and requirements of the organisation or individual. Medical facilities may use it for therapeutic purposes, while sports organisations may employ it for enhanced recovery and performance. Research institutions may utilise it for investigative purposes, and emergency response organisations may require it for treating pressure-related conditions.

The potential benefits such as accelerated healing, reduced inflammation and improved oxygenation often outweigh the costs and logistical challenges associated with operating a your own oxygen chamber, making it an attractive option for organisations that can leverage its advantages.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Alternatively the MS Therapy Centre provides commercial use of its chambers – complete a ‘get in touch’ form for details.
