Every day, durable medical equipment oxygen providers are realizing that the only way they are going to survive in today’s low-reimbursement arena is to choose non-delivery methods of providing oxygen to their patients.
Oxygen concentrators that have cylinder filling capabilities were fine 5 to 10 years ago but historically, patients with these systems typically don’t travel far from home and only stay out for short periods of time for fear of running out of oxygen. Today, there is something better.
Portable oxygen concentrators are quickly becoming the modality of choice for DME companies who want to decrease their delivery overhead but still want to provide a modern product that will improve their patients’ quality of life.
Among the many POCs that are currently available, one brand outperforms all others hands down and remains the gold standard for which the other companies strive.
Check out the recent Needham Report from January of 2020. This is an independent research company that looked at portable concentrators. OxyGo did not make any financial contributions in the making of this report.

"When I found out that I needed oxygen, I thought many activities were lost to me. OxyGo has restored my confidence in getting where I want to be, and my enjoyment in doing what I love."
"The tanks I used before OxyGo were bulky and very restrictive. I used tanks for almost a year before finding out about OxyGo. The tanks were a lot of work and I often found them exhausting to use and set up … OxyGo gave me my life back. Now I want to go places. I can take OxyGo to the pool, beach, grocery store, shopping. I am often gone 8-10 hours a day."
"OxyGo has given my mom her life back and mine too. Freedom to be the type of person she was before. The extra double battery is even more amazing. Before OxyGo she could not go to Columbus, two hours away to see my sister. Now she can see her grandkids—It’s a product that has definitely made her life a lot happier."
"I have patients coming in to switch out for the OxyGo POC because of its battery life. And they love and feel safer with the OxyGo POC because it shows exactly how much time is left to the minute rather than showing remaining time in percentages, which is what units competitive to OxyGo POCs do. Expressing remaining oxygen supply in exact minutes left is a big comfort advantage OxyGo has with patients."
"My life with OxyGo is really 103% better than it ever was with a medical oxygen tank!"
