How does it work?
A hyperbaric chamber is a cabin capable of withstanding high pressures of up to 6 times the atmospheric pressure. They can be single or multi seaters. Inside you breathe pure oxygen at pressures above normal. You have probably heard on more than one occasion, the more pressure the body supports, the more oxygen will dissolve in your blood. A normal treatment in a hyperbaric chamber can be around 2 or 3 ATA (Absolute Atmospheres), although it can get up to around 6.
Oxygen to treat sports injuries
In a nutshell, these cameras are based on oxygen therapy benefits. A technique widely used by elite athletes. When a traumatic injury occurs, tissue damage and swelling hinders the normal flow of oxygen to the area. In hyperbaric chambers, this lack of oxygen is alleviated. In other words, hyperbaric oxygenation is used to accelerate post-workout recovery and to treat certain injuries. Because, amongst other things, it helps the recovery of the cardiovascular system increasing physical potential and the athlete's abilities.
