A 5-liter home oxygen concentrator that is small enough for travel–wouldn’t that be nice?!
Many people dream of smaller, lighter, and more powerful oxygen equipment. If a travel-sized oxygen concentrator that provides up to 5 LPM has been on your wish list, then your dream is about to come true.
Inogen, Inc., the manufacturer of the popular Inogen One G2 and G3 portable oxygen concentrators, recently announced that it has received FDA approval for a first-of-its-kind home oxygen concentrator called the Inogen At Home. The At Home will be the smallest and lightest 5 LPM concentrator on the market.
How does 18 pounds sound?
At 18 pounds, the Inogen At Home will be small enough to easily pick-up-and-go for travel – even air travel. No more home concentrator arrangements will have to be made at your destination when you can bring your own home concentrator with you. The At Home will come with a wheeled cart for easy transport, and it will be small enough to place in your carry-on luggage.
Even if a travel-sized concentrator isn’t your greatest need, many will find its reduced noise level and lower power consumption a great benefit. Even for home use only, a lower electric bill is sure to please.
Inogen set out to change the oxygen therapy market with our Inogen One family of products and in a similar fashion with the Inogen At Home™, we intend to change the perception of oxygen concentrators used in the home. We believe we have created a home concentrator with product attributes that will be patient preferred. – Raymond Huggenberger, Inogen CEO
The Inogen At Home is expected to be released later this year. I anticipate an unveiling at the Medtrade Show next month and will provide more information as soon as it is available.
