Philips Respironics SimplyGo portable oxygen concentrator launched in UK
12 July 2012
Philips' Respironics unit has launched its latest oxygen therapy system in the UK. SimplyGo is a portable oxygen concentrator (POC) that offers user-triggered and continuous flow in a design of less than 5kg. The system is aimed at homecare providers and physicians looking at managing the therapy and lifestyle needs of their oxygen users.
“Philips Respironics’ oxygen solutions give patients the choice to select the best fitted solution to help them in the observance of their oxygen therapy while still being in harmony with their lifestyle”, said Mats Dahlquist, Vice President Home Healthcare Solutions International.
Like all POCs, SimplyGo delivers pulse-dose oxygen, a burst of oxygen triggered when the user starts to take a breath. SimplyGo is also capable of delivering oxygen continuously, similar to stationary concentrators used at home. With an oxygen output up two liters per minute, SimplyGo can meet the needs of nearly all oxygen users including those who are highly active or require continuous flow.
