Frequently Asked Questions
- Are there any dangers in using a hyperbaric chamber?
No incidents have been recorded in Canada in the last 7 years when using a Hyperbaric flexible chamber at low pressures. The risks of barotrauma are minimal. Even if some people will never feel anything, it is normal to feel discomfort during the first sessions, just like during the takeoff and landing of an airplane. The adjustment at the ears can take some time (from 2 to 3 sessions, sometimes more), all of course related to the change in pressure.
- How long per day should the room be used?
It is recommended to do a dive of 1 hour per day. The dive time of 1 hour, excludes the first pressurization step of 10 minutes, as well as the smooth decompression of 15 minutes.
- Is it difficult to operate?
All our hyperbaric chambers can be used independently or with the assistance of a person who supervises from the outside. To begin, we recommend doing a few assisted sessions to get used to sensations and manipulations. Diving autonomy is usually acquired between 3 to 4 sessions. All our hyperbaric chambers are equipped with an internal and external pressure gauge for greater versatility.
- What materials are your hyperbaric chambers built in?
We do not use plastic, PVC, or ancillary components and therefore none of our rooms produces static electricity. We also do not use Teflon Kevlar, which is a material now defended even in the manufacture of frying pans.
Only durable materials and premium components are used in their design to provide increased resistance when subjected to significant pressure. All the interior fabrics of the room are medical, antimicrobial, washable and disinfectable as needed.
- How long can a hyperbaric chamber last?
All models we offer are of exceptional quality and can operate for a minimum period of 10 years.
- Are your rooms assembled with glue or are they welded?
All the hyperbaric chamber joints we offer have been meticulously assembled by welding or sewing so that each part is fused together to prevent pressure loss.
- Do your chambers emit toxic fumes?
No glue has been used in the design of our hyperbaric chambers and they emit no toxic fumes and / or contaminated air. These are all hyper-safe rooms and your children will feel perfectly safe inside.
- Do your hyperbaric chambers generate "Off-Gas"?
No, no material to use in the design of our rooms is likely to produce this effect.
- What is the performance of compressors in your chambers?
The compressors in our chambers are among the most efficient on the market to provide exceptional quality and quantity of air, are very quiet and can offer a flow rate of up to 80 liters of air per minute. Some of our models even use 2 air compressors to provide a sufficient supply of quality air for those and whoever expects to be more than one person when using the cabinet.
- Are your hyperbaric chambers certified?
No chamber is certified, either by the IHMA and / or the IHA and / or the FDA, only specialists can be.
