Reimagining Portable Oxygen Therapy
Respiratory diseases such as COPD and Emphysema affect nearly 210 million people worldwide. Supplemental oxygen is commonly prescribed as a treatment, but the bulky equipment associated with oxygen can compromised patient mobility. We set out with the goal of creating a portable, safe, and affordable device that bridges the gaps in oxygen therapy, allowing people to live fuller, more mobile lives that don't resolve around an oxygen tank.
We are developing a 1 hour supply of oxygen that fits in the palm of your hand. Within COPD there are stages: mild, moderate, severe, and very severe. Our medical offering will cover the entire cycle of the disease. A mild or moderate patient who occasionally needs oxygen when exercising can use this to help them with daily activities such as stairs or walking long distances. A severe patient can use this as a back-up or peace of mind for when they may need some extra time to get a larger source of oxygen.
