Co-developed with oxygen capsule research experts
The Ishihara Oxygen Capsule is a mild hyperbaric oxygen capsule co-developed with Akihiko Ishihara of Kyoto University. Professor Ishihara’s field of research is cell biology and life science, and he is focused on and is an expert in the study of the human body in outer space. He carried out research on the changes in the human body in outer space related to Japanese JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) Astronaut Takuya Ohnishi’s approximately four-month mission on the International Space Station (ISS) in 2016.
Various professionals including World Cup players are known to use oxygen capsules, but the Ishihara Oxygen Capsule, based on years of research, is for practical use and exerts a much safer and more comfortable effect on the human body in a highly balanced manner.
Features of the Ishihara Oxygen Capsule
The Ishihara Oxygen Capsule is made up of three parts: the Hard Shell, the Oxygen Concentration Unit, and the Control Unit, which work together to properly control oxygen concentration and barometric pressure. This is the only oxygen capsule with these specifications available in Japan, excepting those for medical use, and is designed specifically for greater effectiveness.
The Hard Shell allows control of ideal barometric pressure
In order for people to take in oxygen in an optimal manner, the capsule itself must avoid warping. In order to achieve strict control of barometric pressure, a hard shell housing designed not to swell is needed. The Ishihara Oxygen Capsule has evolved based on detailed improvements to the hard shell.
Safe, comfortable, and clean thanks to a fully open interior
The interior of the Ishihara Oxygen Capsule is spacious enough for reading magazines and internal barometric pressure is low enough as to be hardly felt. Also, thanks to a fully open interior, it’s extremely easy to get in and out. After each use, ventilating or cleaning every inch of the space is a breeze making it easier to maintain comfort and cleanliness.
The Oxygen Concentration Unit is standard equipment
Without an oxygen concentrator, an oxygen capsule is just an “air capsule”. The ability to raise concentration is essential and therefore Ishihara Oxygen Capsules include as standard equipment, the Oxygen Concentration Unit which strictly controls oxygen concentration and barometric pressure and displays barometric pressure and oxygen concentration values on the interior and exterior of the capsule on its monitor – it is the only model in Japan with this function.
The Control Unit manages the perfect barometric pressure and oxygen concentration
For oxygen capsules, it is most important to be able to properly manage barometric pressure and oxygen concentration. In conjunction with the Hard Shell, the Control Unit for the Ishihara Oxygen Capsule has superior features for managing optimal barometric pressure and oxygen concentration levels. It is designed with the burden on the human body during pressurization and depressurization and thus allows for safe operation.
An easy-to-manage device for improving health
Ishihara Oxygen Capsule (Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Capsule) is not considered medical equipment under Japanese law – it is sold as a health device. As use is not considered a medical practice, it does not require medical staff for use or operation. In addition, it can be owned and used by anyone.
For use outside of Japan, please review any relevant laws or regulations of the country or region in which the device will be used before installation.
