Elberton, GA (PRWEB) December 10, 2011
Rehabmart.com is an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, recently teamed up with OxyHealth, a medical industry leader in hyperbaric chamber therapy, to help make this life-saving treatment available to consumers in their homes, offices and even while they are traveling. Hyperbaric therapy, which has been widely used since the 1930s to help cure decompression sickness in deep sea divers, is now being recognized as a valuable treatment for other ailments such as carbon monoxide poisoning, infections, wounds and gangrene. Everyone from sports teams to parents of special needs children are finding uses for this new product. Rehabmart.com is among the first online medical supply companies to offer the portable OxyHealth Respiro 270 Hyperbaric Chamber to patients who prefer treatment outside of the typical hospital environment.
Hyperbaric therapy (HBOT) involves an enclosure that raises air pressure three times higher than normal air. This increase in pressure allows the blood to carry more oxygen throughout the body which in turn can promote healing. Now, because of the OxyHealth Respiro 270 Hyperbaric Chamber, HBOT is a convenient, safe and effective therapy for everything from high altitude sickness to sport injuries. Several National Football League players have purchased portable hyperbaric chambers for their homes and some players even have a second chamber to use on the road so they can maintain their therapy without interruption.
Hulet Smith, the Founder and CEO of Rehabmart, has found the product to be invaluable in his own life and is proud his company is helping to bring this therapy into homes across the country. "The OxyHealth portable hyperbaric chamber became a life changing mode of alternative intervention that allowed my family to treat our firstborn daughter Sophia with cost effective Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in the convenience of our own home,” said Smith. “Sophia was born with a brain injury, and HBOT and other integrative approaches assisted her in progressing along a pathway toward improved neurological wellness. As a result, Sophia is currently a happy and healthy nine year old child who is enrolled in a regular education 3rd grade classroom."
The chamber is a Class II Medical Device that is FDA cleared for use in the home, sub-acute care, and in clinics. Portable hyperbaric chambers are safe because they use filtered ambient air (surrounding room air), therefore there is no danger of oxygen toxicity in the body that can occur with other hyperbaric oxygen chambers which utilize an oxygen tank. Mild hyperbaric therapy can safely be used in conjunction with nearly all other treatments.
