OxlifeIndependence-1

Since your diagnosis with COPD you have probably begun looking into a portable oxygen concentrator so you can have the ability to leave your house and travel. With all the options out there it may start to feel overwhelming or you just aren't quiet sure what the proper oxygen concentrator for you is. When shopping for a portable oxygen concentrator make sure it operates at an oxygen level that matches or exceeds your prescribed amount.

Oxlife Independence Specs:

  • Pulse/Continuous Flow
  • FAA Approved
  • Weighs 21.4 lbs w/ 2 batteries
  • Dimensions: 20.2" H x 10.9" W x 8" D

The Oxlife Independence is a durable portable oxygen concentrator made out of lightweight metal construction that offers both continuous and pulse flow oxygen settings. Be assured you will always be properly saturated due to the wide array of flow settings, when continuous flow is being used easily select between 1.0 - 3.0 LPM, while pulse flow settings range from 0.5 - 6.0. What makes the Oxlife Independence stand out from the rest is the integrated wheeled traveling cart, which makes traveling with the 21.4 pound machine seem like nothing! The built-in handle easily extends for use while on the go, and then simply folds back and is unseen from the front for times when you are not on the go.

Customizable Battery Life to Better Suit Your Needs 

Depending on your specific needs you can customize the battery life to better suit you, what this means is you can choose to run the Oxlife Independence off a single battery for a reduced load, or you can choose to run two batteries for an even longer time away from the charging port! Continuous and Pulse flow settings are capable of running off one or two batteries.

Power the Oxlife Independence on the Go 

When having to charge the FAA approved Oxlife Independence you have a few options, because options are always better! The first method is by using the AC power supply which is the standard way of charging the Oxlife portable concentrator and simply plugs into a wall outlet.  The second option is ideal when you're traveling across the country in your R.V. or car, the DC power supply plugs into the cigarette lighter outlet and the Oxlife is fully functional on all settings. However the unit will only charge up to a continuous flow of 2 LPM, and will only charge up to a Pulse setting of 4.  Unlike other DC power supplies that have bulky power bricks attached to them, the Oxlife Independence was engineered with an integrated power brick.

CPAP and BiPAP

Do you use either a CPAP or BiPAP machine at night? Well the Oxlife Independence will be able to keep you properly saturated at night, while also working in congruence with your CPAP or BiPAP machine, making this one of the premier 24/7 portable oxygen concentrators on the market today!

Easy to Read and Operate User Interface

The Oxlife Independence is equipped with a large and easy to read LCD screen that is brightly illuminated, the intuitive screen makes for a more smooth and less confusing user experience. The LCD screen will display the remaining battery life of the single or both batteries attached, what flow the unit is currently using, as well as what flow rate. On the sides of the LCD screen there is a power button, mode button (continuous/pulse), and flow rate adjustment.

Pros of the Oxlife Independence 

  • Made of a durable magnesium cabinet
  • CPAP & BiPAP compatible
  • FAA Approved
  • 24/7 use
  • Built-in travel cart for easy transport

Cons of the Oxlife Independence 

  • 21.4 pound weight may be too much for some patients
  • Requires frequent filter changes
