Is the Invacare® XPO2™ Portable Oxygen Concentrator Right for You?

By Do More With Oxygen

Tue, Jun 23, 2015

Whether you’ve been on oxygen therapy for a while or you’ve just received a prescription, you’re probably wondering how you can still stay active and not worry about dragging large oxygen tanks around with you to places such as the mall, grocery store or sporting event.

If you like to travel, this may be your golden ticket. The XPO2 Portable Oxygen Concentrator only weighs 6.4 lb., so it’s lightweight enough to be worn across your shoulders so your hands are free to sightsee, take photographs and experience your surroundings. It’s also FAA approved for air-travel, so you can stay independent and active.

You can get up to three hours and 40 minutes of run time from this portable oxygen concentrator. When it comes time to recharge, you have three options: you can use a supplemental battery, or the AC charger or DC charger connectors—this means you can even charge your XPO2 Concentrator in the car!

Do you notice that your breathing isn’t always consistent? The XPO2 Concentrator features Invacare® Sensi-Pulse™ Technology which automatically customizes the size of each bolus of oxygen you receive to ensure you’re receiving the correct amount of oxygen with each breath.

To find out where you can purchase an XPO2 Oxygen Concentrator, visit the online store locator.
