How It Works

Our chamber operates without too much effort. Here is some information to explain how the medium Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy chamber works.

Airsep Oxygen feed

Our Oxygen concentrator provides +- 90% oxygenated air depending on flow rate. This ensures that optimum levels of oxygen reach the cells and tissues.

Compressor

A simple compressor works to keep the chamber pressurised at a constant flow rate. Another safety extra is that the compressor gave out before the chamber did during extreme testing.

The Door

Patented and simple. The door of the chamber fits into place easily and uses the pressure inside of the chamber to seal itself. No clips or zips, this setup is fail proof and simple.

Oxygen in the body

Oxygen keeps us alive. If we are able to raise the amount of oxygen we have available in the body to optimum levels, we create an environment primed for health and healing.

Why pressurize

Simply put, if you pressurise a gas (Oxygen) enough, it will turn into a liquid. By adding pressure into our system, we catalyse the Oxygen and your body can use it that much faster and efficiently.

Frequent use

We recommend frequent use of our chamber. By stacking up sessions, your body remains in the primed state for longer and therefor improves the effectiveness of medium Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.

Simple & Safe

Our chamber is leading in safety and easy of use. 

The door

Our chamber features handles both on the outside and inside of the door. This means that both the opperator and the patient can open and close the door. The chamber is so easy to use that our operators put themselves in and out of the chamber without any help.

Dual valves

Dual, two way valves are situated conveniently for both the operator or the patient to open and close the valves. These valves regulate wether the chamber is pressurising, or how fast it is pressurising. If at any time the patient would like to get out of the chamber, they can simply open the valves and depressurise.

Safety valves

To maintain an atmospheric pressure of 1,4ATM, two spring loaded valves are situated on top of the chamber. These stop the chamber from over-pressurising and works as exhaust ports to circulate the air inside of the chamber. New, clean air is pumped in every second and old air exits the chamber through these safety valves.

The locking mechanism

Our chamber uses a patented door locking mechanism that is simple and reliable. It seals itself as the chamber gains pressure and has a life time warranty.

The mask

By receiving oxygen through a mask, we ensure that the oxygen levels inside the chamber never exceeds normal atmospheric levels. This allows users to safely use electronic devices without the risk of fire. If the chamber itself was pumped full of oxygen, risk levels would be much higher.

The chamber's material

A blend of material and resin creates a super strong material that can withstand high pressures. Our chamber has been tested to more than double the pressure it operates at and had no problems.

Technology Friendly

Scared you'll be bored in the chamber? Bring along your devices and rest assured you'll have something to do.

Phone & Tablet

Bring your phone or tablet along and catch up on whatever social obligations you have.

WhatsApp or Netflix.

Laptop

Need work done or emails answered? Bring your office with you. Your laptop will be right at home in the chamber.

Earphones

Bring along your earphones and listen to any music you want. Headphones or in-ear, they're all welcome in the chamber.

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

  

Entering a Biobarica (RevitalAir) 430 chamber signifies a clear understanding and acceptance of these recommendations and a declaration that there are no conditions present that would impede or harm a person from using the chamber.
