This project was funded on 16 Sep 2019!

We have an oxygen tank that seats four people, allowing pure oxygen to be taken into into the body under pressure to aid the bodies recovery from damage. Outside we have an inlet pipe which is attached to oxygen and allows people to sit outside the chamber breathing pure oxygen, they use a mask or a mouthpiece. We do have some that cannot use either mask or mouthpiece due to being to young, or it does not feel comfatable around the face. For this we have the hood which goes over the head like a space helmet, but they cannot do this outside the chamber as it needs an outlet pipe attached to the hood. The hood is inflated with oxygen but without the outlet pipe it deflates.

What we'll deliver:

  • Area for people, who can not enter the tank, to take oxygen
  • Easier area for children to take oxygen therapy

Why it's a great idea:

Oxygen Therapy is the medical use of oxygen in a pressurised environment. Breathing pure oxygen through a mask during one hour sessions in a pressurised chamber increases the oxygen level in the bloodstream. This encourages the body to begin healing itself, generating new stem cells and repairing damaged tissues. There is evidence that Oxygen Treatment can help with the following conditions:MS; CFS; ME; Parkinson's; Sensorineural Hearing Loss; Anemia; Arthritis; Brain Injury; Burns; Cluster Headaches; Crohn's / Colitis; CPS; Crush Injuries; Fibromyalgia; Lyme Disease; Osteomyelitis; Cancer; Chronic Would; Diabetic Leg Ulcers; Migraine; Sports Injury; Stroke; Radionecrosis.

Steps to get it done:

  • Creation and first usage of the breathing area
