Inogen reports that Frost & Sullivan will present the company with the 2005 Oxygen Therapy Product of the Year Award at tonight’s Excellence in Medical Devices & Healthcare Awards Banquet in recognition of the company’s development of the Inogen One Oxygen Concentrator.
Inogen describes its product:
… Inogen One, the Independent System that defines a new category of oxygen device.
Designed to perform as both a stationary and a portable device, the Inogen One system is engineered to meet the changing demands of the oxygen industry. For patients, the Inogen One presents an opportunity for spontaneity and more active life both at home and on the road. For providers, the system can provide improved business efficiency.
Greater Independence with The Inogen One Satellite Conserver:
Typically, pulse dose technology requires a standard cannula of 7 feet or less which can limit patients’ mobility. Inogen’s innovative Satellite Conserver allows the patient to be up to 100 feet away from the Inogen One. That’s because Inogen’s Satellite Conserver takes control of the conserving function, eliminating the need for the patient to remain close to the concentrator. The Satellite Conserver then acts as a remote control to the Inogen One and can be discretely placed in a pocket, clipped onto a belt, or worn like a necklace.
Pretty spiffy, isn’t it?
