Comfort, Accessibility, and Clinical Considerations
The Dive is suitable for a single adult only. It is big enough to accommodate hyperbaric treatment for an adult and a single child; however, considerable sacrifice in comfort and mobility will likely be made. Most adults are unable to sit up in this size hyperbaric chamber; however, one can prop up their shoulders and neck to utilize a hand-held DVD player or device such as an iPod. Using a laptop to type and work is not practical within this unit and one should reserve shuch activitiesfor bigger units such as the Grand Dive and Vertical Grand Dive mild hyperbaric chambers. For most adults, complete hip flexion is possible within a 28” hyperbaric chamber. What is meant by full hip flexion is the ability to bring your knee towards your chest. In smaller chambers such as the Shallow Dive hyperbaric chamber, the diameter of the chamber limits most persons from accomplishing such a task. For individuals such as myself at 6’ 3”, this extra mobility is of considerable comfort and convenience over the 23” diameter Shallow Dive. Further, this increased diameter allows the shoulders to lye flat when lying on one’s back. Individuals who have wide shoulders will suffer from their shoulders being pushed towards their chest in the smaller 23” Shallow Dive.
The Dive portable hyperbaric chamber can be used with a hoyer lift (crane system) to accommodate disabled persons for mild hyperbaric therapy. However, this hyperbaric chamber has a smaller zipper opening than the Grand Dive and is not well suited to accommodating larger patients. In order to accomplish the use of a hoyer lift, the Dive must be placed on a platform allowing the legs of the lift to swing under the chamber. For more able bodied individuals, the common method of entry and exit from the chamber will be crawling from one’s hands and knees into the chamber. A padded exercise mat placed may be placed next to the chamber to help facilitate this when the chamber is located on a hard surface.
Unassisted Treatment
The 28” diameter Dive is very suitable to operate without assistance from another person; assuming a certain degree of flexibility in taller persons who would choose such usage. As the Dive is 28” in diameter, most persons not capable of sitting up in the hyperbaric chamber; therefore, a person must reach towards his or her ankles to fasten the furthest buckle in addition to reaching the starting point of the zipper before beginning a hyperbaric treatment session. Of course, the larger the patient and the smaller the mild hyperbaric chamber, the more difficult this process becomes. That said, once again I am 6’ 3” tall and I can operate both the 28” Dive and the the 23” Shallow Dive hyperbaric chambers without the need for assistance from another individual . Note: Trick for Unassisted Operation; when using smaller portable hyperbaric chambers without assistance, we recommend staging the zipper at the location of the first strap and buckeling this first strap prior to entering the chamber. In this manner, one does not need to reach as far to secure the zippers and fasten the remaining buckles from inside the chamber. Of course, this provides a smaller opening by which the person crawls into the chamber; however with a little practice, this process requires little thought or concern. Special Note: If you are a parent considering unassisted hyperbarics sessions with a young child accompanying you; please consider the reduced space you will have when securing the buckles and zippers. Although it may be accomplished, the added difficulty may lead to poor adherence to a specific treatment protocol recommended by your doctor.
Clinical Considerations
The 28" x 7' portable hyperbaric chamber models including the Dive, American Dive, and Military Dive are only recommended as an in-home rental option for patients and are not recommended for those considering usage within a clinic. The smaller chamber size limits the treatment of patients requiring a guardian and prevents couples who would prefer to undergo hyperbaric oxygen therapy together from enjoying such luxury (keep in mind that wellness and anti-aging are fast growing markets for hyperbaric oxygen therapy). Even though this chamber is less expensive than the larger 40” x 10’ Grand Dive, consider the lost revenue from the above populations. Over time, the Grand Dive (our primary recommendation for most clinics) will likely be a far superior investment as a primary hyperbaric chamber for clinical usage.
