Founded in 2001, California-based Inogen manufactures and distributes medical equipment including both at-home and portable oxygen concentrators. Inogen’s portable oxygen concentrators have been clinically validated through research, development, and testing for 24/7 use.
Inogen is one of the few portable oxygen concentrator companies that offer a lifetime warranty on its products. Though the default warranty is three years at the base price, Inogen sells a number of different “Freedom Packages” that provide customization for the needs and preferences of the patient.
For example, a customer can purchase the Inogen One G4 oxygen concentrator for $2,295 with a 3-year warranty or the customer can upgrade to the next tier up for an additional battery and a lifetime warranty on the device for $3,195.
All oxygen concentrators, regardless of the package purchased, are eligible for a 30-day, risk-free trial and free shipping.
Inogen sells a larger-capacity at-home oxygen concentrator that is relatively lightweight, small, and quiet compared to other at-home systems. Patients requiring constant oxygen may want to consider the at-home system in addition to a portable concentrator so they don’t have to worry about charging the portable system’s battery as frequently.
The Inogen website provides a thorough introduction to the benefits of oxygen concentrators, the safety of the devices, and answers to frequently asked questions about oxygen therapy and portable oxygen concentrators specifically. Prospective customers can request an even more detailed information kit for free.
Inogen does not appear to provide payment plans for the purchase of any of its oxygen concentrators. Each product must be paid for in full at the time of sale.
