Oxygen

In the United States alone, an estimated 1.5 million people rely on supplemental oxygen in their daily lives, and HME businesses are ideally positioned to meet this need. There are, generally, two ways for HME providers to do this, either through a tank-delivery system or providing portable oxygen devices.

Product trends suggest a higher patient demand for portable oxygen devices (POC). POCs give patients the freedom to live a more active lifestyle, independent from the home and healthcare facilities, which ultimately helps to improve patients’ overall well-being. Suppliers continue to find ways to increase portability by boosting battery life, expanding the possibilities for connectivity between devices and smartphones and reducing device weight without losing tank capacity.

Tank delivery still has a place in the market, but providers who only deal in the tank-delivery business might be missing out on an opportunity to expand sales and tap into a new customer base. Whether you are a POC business or tank-delivery business looking to expand or transition into a new model, it is important to keep up-to-date on the wide-range of POCs available and what each has to offer customers in the way of portability. Here is a selection of POC devices and accessories currently on the market:
