Change Your Oxygen. Change Your Life!

We believe this statement because time and time again we hear from oxygen users who have experienced the life-changing freedom that comes from switching from oxygen tanks to a portable oxygen concentrator. If you are trying to decide whether investing in a portable concentrator is right for you, consider these benefits:


1. Greater Freedom & Independence

Portable oxygen concentrators are lighter and easier to use than tanks. Models range from 2.8 lbs to 4.7 lbs. They are ideal for when you leave home to travel, for physical activity, trips to your doctor, or the grocery store. A portable oxygen concentrator is required for oxygen users who may want to travel by airplane. They are also preferred by many for home usage so you are not tethered to long tubing which you may get tangled up in or ever trip over.


2. No More Hard-To-Manage Tanks

With the press of a button, your portable oxygen concentrator is ready to use. No need to hassle with a tank key. When leaving home for extended periods of time you don’t need to lug around extra tanks. Just plug it into your car to conserve and charge your battery. Bring your AC wall adapter or an extra battery and enjoy a full day out with friends and family.

3. Increased Physical & Mental Health

Tanks can be a deterrent to living a happy, healthier life. Many people are reluctant to leave home or exercise with tanks. A lightweight portable unit makes taking a walk or leaving home for any reason easier and more enjoyable for a happier and healthier you.

4. Safety

Portable units allow you to never run out ofoxygen. You can plug them in wherever you go and with extra batteries, you can rest assured that you will not run out of oxygen. If your power ever goes out you can rely on batteries or plug it into your car until you can get to a place where there is power or an alternate source of oxygen.
