In an ambient atmosphere, we breathe in 20% oxygen and 80% nitrogen. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, aims to increase the percentage of pressurised oxygen inhaled by having the individual sit inside the chamber. This increased oxygen is dissolved into all of the body’s fluids; the plasma, the central nervous system fluids, the lymph and the bone.
Through this, oxygen can be carried to areas where circulation is diminished or blocked. The increased oxygen gently and safely enhances the ability of white blood cells to kill bacteria, reduce swelling and allow new blood vessels to grow more rapidly. Our Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber is one of the first in Australia to be Wheelchair accessible and may be used to support individuals with the following conditions:
- Sleep disorders
- Muscle recovery (often used by sports stars)
- Overall alertness and brain function
- Burns and wound healing
- Autism / ADHD
- Cerebral Palsy
- Stroke, dementia, Alzheimer’s
- Renal disease
- Plus much more!
