For many individuals with chronic pulmonary conditions, the use of oxygen is a critical part of getting through the day. In the past, carted oxygen tanks made it cumbersome for patients, reducing mobility and making the ability do everyday tasks very difficult. Portable oxygen concentrators such as the OxyGo offer patients up to nine hours of oxygen use without requiring a power source. Here are a few other benefits of this type of device.
- More independence – Portable oxygen concentrators such as the OxyGo allow you to utilize oxygen sources on your own terms. This means no waiting for a replacement tank or worrying that it will not arrive in time. This handy device provides an unlimited supply of oxygen wherever you go, promoting a more active lifestyle for the patient. The battery lasts up to nine hours and can be easily recharged at home or even in your car. Additionally, the handy carrying bag and small size make it easy to transport and eliminates the need for a cart.
- Mobility – Having to drag an oxygen tank behind you can create many mobility issues. Simple tasks such as walking up a small flight of stairs can be impossible. The OxyGo is lightweight, compact and very portable. It makes taking part in normal daily activities a lot easier. And, because OxyGo is under five pounds, it is easy for seniors to carry wherever they go.
- Consistent oxygen therapy – When you are unable to utilize an oxygen source per the requests of your physician you are compromising the health benefits received from consistent oxygen therapy. Because of its portability, the OxyGo allows patients to remain compliant with the doctor’s orders, allowing them to live heathier and happier lives.
- Do More – The benefits of portable oxygen concentrators are seen most in the freedom they give you to do more. Walk, exercise, travel, visit with neighbors and enjoy a normal daily routine while meeting your health goals.
