OxyGen

Overview

Millions of individuals die each year without the life-sustaining oxygen therapy they need. The majority of these deaths occur in remote areas, where provision of supplemental oxygen is simply not available due to lack of electricity and other infrastructure constraints. That is where OxyGen is designed to make a difference. OxyGen, our O2 concentrating handpump, is mechanically-driven, portable, and inexpensive so that needed oxygen can reach patients in electricity-deprived scenarios and the remotest of areas.
