We strive to provide our clients with the best in medium Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy available and in the safest possible way. Our objective is to improve quality of life, reduce stress and injury time, kickstart anti-ageing mechanisms within the body and aid in the treatment of various illnesses.
What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Technology?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized environment. The air pressure is increased two to three times higher than normal. Under these conditions, your lungs can gather much more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure. Your blood carries this extra oxygen throughout your body, helping to fight bacteria and stimulate the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing.

JAMES - SANDTON
When I visited the Oxygenate Medium Hyperbaric Chamber for the first time, I had a 4cm rounded wound in my right foot. During the first 3 sessions, I could see my wound changing colours and starting to heal. After the 11th session the wound had completely healed. Thank you for helping me.
MARTIN - MIDRAND
My name is Martin, I'm an architect and I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease at the age of 55. The tremors had become worse and worse until I discovered Oxygenate.
Unfortunately Parkinson's is not curable but it makes my tremors decrease or even disappear for weeks, allowing me to live a normal life. It is important to advertise the benefits of this therapy, since it is not very widespread. Personally, it changed my life.
Every athlete needs to keep reinventing himself to stay at the top, in my case it was really making sure that my body could perform at it it's highest. Oxygenate Medium Hyperbaric therapy has really assisted in developing my body into the machine it needs to be through optimal recovery.
Summary and recommendations using the BioBarica Medium Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber
The Biobarica (RevitalAir) 430 chamber is a soft chamber that goes to a maximum of 1,4 ATM and uses 90% Oxygen enriched air from an Airsep Oxygen concentrator. The BioBarica chamber is an ancillary therapy and no claims, either real or implied are being made. This type of hyperbaric therapy is considered medium pressure Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT).
There are 15 classified medical conditions for which hard chamber HBOT is officially approved (arterial gas embolism, decompression sickness, Carbon monoxide poisoning, Clostridial Myositis and myonecrosis (Gas gangrene), crush injuries, compartment Syndrome and other traumatic ischaemias, enhancement of healing in selected problem wounds, necrotising soft tissue infections, refractory osteomyelitis, delayed radiation injury, compromised skin grafts and flaps, acute thermal burns, severe blood loss anaemia, inoperable brain abscesses, central retinal artery thrombosis, idiopathic sudden, sensorineural hearing loss). More information on accredited hard chambers can be obtained from the Southern African Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Association (www.sauhma.org).
In recent years, it has become internationally accepted that many other conditions may benefit from the process of “hyperoxia”; which is the process of increasing the level of Oxygen within the body. mHBOT assists as a co-adjuvant therapy with a very large number of conditions where mHBOT has proved very successful but are not yet endorsed by the medical schemes as medical treatments due to ongoing clinical research.
A brief summary of conditions where mHBOT serves as a co-adjuvant therapy includes but are not limited to:
General use: Stress, Depression, Rejuvenation.
Neurology: Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease.
Wound Care: Burns & Grafts, Diabetic Ulcers.
Musculoskeletal Recovery: Sports Injuries, Muscle, tendon & bone injuries
Chronic Conditions: Cancer, Arthritis, Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, Varicose Veins, Sleep Disorders, Circulatory Disorders,
Migraines & Headaches
