Commercial hyperbaric chambers are generally used in hospitals and administered by trained medical professions. They are typically large in size so they are not considered portable, with an internal volume of over 80,000 cubic inches. The length of the commercial hyperbaric chambers is almost nine feet with a diameter of 31 inches. It can withstand pressures of up to 4 psi and can accommodate both an adult and child comfortably for a pleasant, relaxed and oxygen chamber experience free from stress every time it is used.
Commercial hyperbaric chambers are usually accommodated with windows that made of double layered polycarbonate and allow light to enter the chamber. Two of these windows are offset so that an attendant can observe the chamber from either side of it. There is also a large high accuracy pressure gauge on the outside that can be easily read from anywhere in the room. This gauge automatically correct for changes in altitude and barometric pressure to insure a stable interior environment. In addition to this pressure gauge, there is also one on the inside that can be adjusted by the patient to raise or lower the internal pressure.
Commercial hyperbaric chambers are constructed with an inner and outer bag. The inner bag is bag of 880-weight nylon coated by urethane while the outer bag is made of double urethane with a coating of 39 ounce 2 by 2 nylon in a basket weave. There is an extra-long zipper to make entry and exit easy for patients with disabilities. There are six stainless steel buckles used to close commercial hyperbaric chambers that are capable of handling 10,000 pounds of pull-strength. They are easy to open and close and can be done by the patient. The inhalation of oxygen can be done either with or without a mask, the mask requiring the additional use of an oxygen tank or contractor. The compressor for commercial hyperbaric chambers has a filter system with multiple capabilities that makes for a more conformable chamber environment by both cooling and dehumidifying the air. There is a custom-designed sound baffle for this compressor so the chamber can not only be used in hospitals but small medical clinics. The quality of the compressed is very high with particulate matter size and density, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide levels at the lowest possible values.
The internal frame of commercial hyperbaric chambers is made of half-inch anodized aluminum that can keep the chamber in an open position even when not inflated. The frame is also of high strength so it can be used to support individuals going in and out of the chamber and quickens the amount of time needed to inflate the chamber. Commercial hyperbaric chambers can also be equipped with an internal mattress that is of medical grade and 98 inches in length designed to custom fit the chamber. A large zipper on the mattress enables it to be easily cleaned and maintained. The commercial hyperbaric chambers are prevented from rolling in place with the use of closed-cell anti roll bolsters. These chambers can also be equipped with a sound-powered intercom so that patients inside the chambers can speak with the medical professionals outside the chambers should the need arise.
Mono-Place Hyperbaric Chambers as the name might suggest, are single person chambers designed to hold one person laying down. Typically Mono-Place Chambers are personally owned and home-use chambers which are great for athletes. They take up minimal space and designed to take up less space than a twin sized bed. Shaped like a twinkie, these cylindrical chambers are comfortable for reading playbooks, taking a nap, or even spending a whole night inside.
Multi-Place Hyperbaric Chambers in contrast are multiple person units that can hold from 2-10 people at a time. These chambers are perfect for sports facilities like training complexes, gyms, and doctors offices where multiple treatments are required simultaneously. Multi-Place Chambers allow users to sit up, rather than lay down and the pressure in these chambers are typically higher than Mono-Place Chambers.
