Hyperbaric Chamber

A hyperbaric chamber is a pressurized tube or room that provides pure oxygen in air pressure levels that are up to three times higher than average.

As you sit or lie in the chamber, you breath in pure oxygen so that it enters your blood and travels throughout your body, allowing for tissue repair and the restoration of normal body function.
