Detailed Overview

For a full breakdown of the different model specifications, select the Technical Specification Tab below.

The Hyperlite 1 is the world leading portable hyperbaric chamber and the only internationally approved non-metallic chamber capable of any 100% Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). 

Our latest model utilises advanced fabric technology to produce our most lightweight, easily transportable and rapidly deployable first-aid medical treatment system, providing life saving critical care capabilities to military operations during remote dive operations.

In service with Navy, Army, Air Force and Special Operations forces worldwide the Hyperlite 1 is designed to be durable, quick to assemble and intuitive to operate with a total system weight of just 40kg (without patient). The main tube of the pressure vessel is foldable when packaged, rigid when pressurised and the Pressure Vessel (PVHO) can be hand-lifted by 4-6 personnel and transferred whilst continuing treatment by land, air or sea. 

With a Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP) of 2.3 bar (g), all 100% oxygen treatments can be provided on-scene, or alternatively, the patient can be transported whilst continuing treatment up to 17,500 feet (5,500 metres) in an unpressurised cabin to the nearest hyperbaric medical facility. 

The Hyperlite 1 Portable Hyperbaric Chamber design and manufacture is approved by US National Standard for Pressure Vessels for Human Occupancy (ASME-PVHO), is FDA compliant as a medical device including 510k, has CE approval CE/93/42/EEC and has US Navy Diving and Manned Systems Safety Certification. For a full list of our approvals, see our Technical Specification in the tab below.

The Hyperlite 1 Portable Hyperbaric Chamber proudly remains the flagship product for SOS Group.

Please note that existing owners of Hyperlite 1 Portable Hyperbaric Chambers are able to upgrade their present units to incorporate the new braided technology tube in place of the filament wound para-aramid fibre/silicone tube originally supplied. Full information is available on request and is highly recommended. Please note that the life of the tubes is ten years, but the window assemblies etc. may be extended to up to twenty years. This upgrade can only be carried out at a recognised service facility.
