Portable Hyperbaric Chambers

Portable hyperbaric chambers, while easy to understand and grasp, have many nuances that make them unique. It is easy to chalk up these devices to portable versions of standard hyperbaric chambers. However, to assume that would be incorrect because these devices fill a specific niche that standard hyperbaric chambers with higher working atmospheric pressure/absolute (ATA) cannot fill. 

Hyperbaric chambers are divided into two categories: soft shell and hard shell chambers. Soft shell chambers are portable and perfect for home use. They also have a lower working atmospheric pressure (1.2 to 1.5 ATA). Hard shell chambers are ideal for commercial use and have higher working pressures (1.5 to 2.0 ATA). This article explores what you need to know about portable chambers. We invite you to read further to learn more about this topic. 

Portable Hyperbaric Chambers and Mild Hyperbaric Therapy

As discussed earlier, portable chambers have lower working atmospheric pressure. However, lower atmospheric pressure doesn’t mean these devices are inferior to those with higher pressures. While hyperbaric chambers are known for hyperbaric therapy, there is a lesser-known form of this procedure, mild hyperbaric therapy. This therapy type is where soft shells or portable chambers excel. 

Mild hyperbaric therapy uses lower working atmospheric pressures to address benign conditions. ATA from 1.5 to 2.0 is already considered high and is perfect for addressing issues like decompression sickness and physical performance. On the other hand, mild hyperbaric therapy relies on a subtler approach, which is waiting for the oxygen to be dissolved into the bloodstream and facilitating recovery from there. 

This recovery happens when the dissolved oxygen reaches harder-to-reach tissues. It’s no secret that not every tissue receives the proper stimulation and oxygen it needs. When this happens, the function of the affected body part suffers. Portable hyperbaric chambers are the perfect tools for this job because they produce low atmospheric pressure, effectively allowing oxygen to dissolve into the bloodstream. 

Portable Hyperbaric Chambers: Things You Need to Know 

A portable or soft shell hyperbaric chamber is closely associated with mild hyperbaric therapy. However, some features set it apart from hard shell hyperbaric chambers. Some of these features might be enough to sway customers who want to buy models with higher ATAs into buying these portable models instead. Below are some of the factors that make these portable chambers stand out. 


It’s easy to assume that soft shell chambers aren’t durable because of their soft exterior materials. However, these materials can withstand the working atmospheric pressure of these devices. We must remember that hyperbaric therapy needs a vessel to accommodate pressurized air. Rest assured that these portable devices are more than equipped to deal with these pressures. 

No Need for Medical Supervision; A Medical Prescription Will Suffice

Hard shell hyperbaric chambers are closely associated with clinical settings, and this is not just because they look like they belong in clinics. Any device that exceeds 1.4 ATA requires a medical professional to be present. However, if you choose soft shell/portable chambers, a medical prescription will suffice. This means that you can experience hyperbaric therapy within the comfort of your home. Additionally, you don’t need to factor in your travel time going to and from hyperbaric therapy clinics. 

Comfort Options

Perhaps you’ve already encountered different variations of hard shell hyperbaric chambers, such as the lying and sitting hard shell hyperbaric chamber. However, soft shell/portable chambers also have those configurations. If lying down while receiving hyperbaric therapy doesn’t work for you, you can choose sitting hyperbaric chamber models. Additionally, companies like Airvida Chambers have models that cater to wheelchairs, allowing people with disability to enjoy hyperbaric therapy.
