Caire Medical creates and distributes portable oxygen concentrator products through its online website and through several online medical device distributors. Caire Medical is the largest portable oxygen concentrator manufacturer and has been in business for over 50 years.
Its on-site products include the Freestyle family of products (including the Airsep Focus), the Eclipse 5, and the Companion 5. The Freestyle oxygen concentrator is a typically lightweight portable oxygen concentrator weighing in under five pounds and containing a rechargeable battery with a 7-hour charge. The Eclipse 5 has a 5-hour charge with a rechargeable battery, comes with a rolling cart, and weighs over 18 pounds. The Companion 5 is a 36-pound home oxygen concentrator.
The AirSep Focus is the lightest portable oxygen concentrator available today. It weighs 1.75 pounds, making it highly portable and ideal for an active lifestyle. With its compact and ergonomic design, the medical device is an attractive choice for consumers looking for a lightweight, reliable product. It has a 4-hour battery life which can be lengthened by purchasing an external, wearable battery pack.
Caire Medical’s website also includes resources for those living with COPD and learning how to use an oxygen concentrator. It includes a FAQ section with commonly-asked concentrator questions.
Portable oxygen concentrators can be expensive. Caire offers financing through PayPal Credit to help customers create a payment plan for their products. The unit might be eligible for no interest repayment if the purchase is paid in full in six months.
While Caire’s Companion home concentrator and Eclipse portable oxygen concentrator offer continuous flow, products in the Freestyle Family are pulse flow only, meaning they do not deliver a continuous stream of air. Patients who require continuous flow oxygen may not be pleased with their options, as the Eclipse portable concentrator is a sizeable weight.
