Imagine having the freedom to leave your house whenever you wanted; to watch your grandson’s t-ball game or take in a movie; to go for a stroll in the park or go grocery shopping with ease. When you have a large, cumbersome oxygen tank to accommodate, these enjoyable outings can become irritating and limited. And you can only leave the house when you are not waiting for your oxygen to be delivered from your medical supplier. Yes, imagine a life of comfort, ease and convenience.
While these adjectives were not always associated with oxygen therapy, they are now when discussing a home oxygen filling system. Not only are there now many options for oxygen therapy, there are also plenty of reasons to consider your own home filling system.
Never Run Out of Your Personal Supply of Oxygen
You’ve imagined a world where you could come and go as you please, now imagine one now where you never run out of oxygen. Here, you don’t have to ration your oxygen or skip trips to the store, evenings filled with good food and friends or any other occasion you may have passed up before.
There is an oxygen system that allows you to get oxygen whenever you need it. In fact, you can fill your own cylinders right in your own home over and over again. With the Invacare® HomeFill®Oxygen System, you never need to worry about running out of oxygen again and you won’t need to schedule your oxygen deliveries ever again.
HomeFill System Offers Convenience
The convenience of the HomeFill System goes far beyond not having to wait on deliveries. There are several cylinder sizes to choose from, and, because you fill your own, you can choose which size will best suit your activities for the day. Most oxygen users leave home 3 to 4 times a week for 3 to 4 hours. So the 6-hour tanks provide enough oxygen to cover your needs while leaving plenty of oxygen in case your plans change or there is an emergency.
The smallest cylinder weighs only 2 lb. and lasts users about 2 hours on a setting of 2. You can put it in your purse or clip it to your belt. It is ideal for short trips to the store or running errands. No more awkward tank to drag behind you, just portable cylinders that offer plenty of options. (Note: Cylinder sizes are not prescribed. Talk to your provider to decide which would be best for you and your lifestyle.)
