Life isn't about surviving, it's about Living Fully
Sustainable Solutions to Enhance Your Quality of Life
We have made it our mission to improve the quality of life for people suffering from various lung diseases that require supplemental oxygen by providing smart technology that takes the fear, stress, and uncertainty of O2 management out of their life.
To liberate people on long-term oxygen therapy so that they can continue to live their life without fear of running out of oxygen.
“If you run out of oxygen, the damage to your brain, your heart and other vital organs starts within a few minutes, perhaps one minute if you have advanced lung disease. If you are “undersaturated” for any length of time, the damage is incremental but cumulative. Your chances of survival, proper brain function and quality of life increase the sooner you receive adequate oxygen. Intelligent O2 management means the difference between living fully or continual suffering and shortened breath.”

Where the Industry Falls Short
There has not been any change in supplemental oxygen technology in over 30 years. Each year, 48,000 people receive a diagnosis of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (with approximately 40,000 deaths annually) which leads to eventual long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT) care. Every 4 minutes a person in the U.S. dies from COPD.
Lack of sufficient oxygen damages the brain, the heart, and other vital organs. LTOT requires being tethered to an oxygen tank, in turn significantly reducing the patient and their caregiver’s quality of life. Breathing outside of the home requires the use of a small oxygen tank at work, play, or in the community. These tanks use an inexact pressure gauge to track how much oxygen remains in the tank at any given time.
To date, the oxygen therapy market has failed to address the need to monitor, maintain, and adjust the oxygen flow in real-time based on an individual’s activity level in any impactful manner.
