Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare launch new Portable Oxygen Concentrator into respiratory market
Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare has revealed its new iGo2 Portable Oxygen Concentrator (POC), the first of its kind to use patented technology to automatically adjust the dosage of oxygen in relation to a patient’s breath rate.
Providing oxygen therapy to those that require greater oxygen concentrations than the levels of ambient air, POCs are commonly used for those with chronic bronchitis, emphysema and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
According to Drive DeVilbiss, the new iGo2 features its patented SmartDose Technology, consistently delivering more oxygen when needed eliminates the need to manually adjust oxygen settings.
The company the new POC also offers a standard PulseDose delivery mode alongside SmartDose.
The battery and LCD screen are located on top of the unit and can be accessed while in the over-the-shoulder carry case, whilst its 2.2kg weight aims to promote more active lifestyles
Also featuring what Drive DeVilbiss describes as a protective, rugged over mould for an added layer of protection, the iGo2 also boasts a PressureVacuum Compressor System (PVSA) that removes nitrogen and humidity to reduce sieve bed wear and extend the time before the unit needs to be replaced.
With a three-year warranty and meeting compliance to be used in-flight, the POC also includes a sensitive conserver trigger (0.05 cm H2O) that detects patient breathing at lower pressures.
The new product announcement follows yesterday’s statement that former CEO Bob Gilligan had stepped down and former Dentsply Sirona executive Robert Size had been appointed to the role after a turbulent period for the company, which saw it face an alleged ‘liquidity crunch’ before its investors agreed to back the organisation with $35 million in new capital this Autumn.https://thiis.co.uk/drive-devilbiss-healthcare-launch-new-portable-oxygen-concentrator-into-respiratory-market/https://i0.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/Drive-DeVilbiss-Healthcare-igo2-and-case.jpg?fit=900%2C601&ssl=1https://i0.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/Drive-DeVilbiss-Healthcare-igo2-and-case.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1NewsroomSupplier NewsTrade NewsBob Gilligan,Drive DeVilbiss healthcare,liquidity crunch,POC,Portable Oxygen Concentrator,PressureVacuum Compressor System,respiratory market,Robert Size,SmartDoseDrive DeVilbiss Healthcare has revealed its new iGo2 Portable Oxygen Concentrator (POC), the first of its kind to use patented technology to automatically adjust the dosage of oxygen in relation to a patient’s breath rate.
