The Sky's The Limit

Richard W. of Danville, IN is so happy with his portable oxygen concentrator from Open-Aire that he says, “it makes me want to stand on my head!”  He had been using oxygen for several years, and was very unhappy with all the limitations oxygen tanks had put on his life. When he learned about portable oxygen concentrators he thought that was exactly what he needed.  “I didn’t even know this was an option,” he says.  When his old provider would not offer him one, he looked around for a new company and found Open-Aire. A few weeks later, he got an OxyGo from Open-Aire, and couldn’t be happier.

Now Richard plans on using his portable oxygen concentrator to do something he has wanted to do for a long time. His son has a pilot’s license and Richard has wanted to go flying with him. But, due to the small planes he flies, oxygen tanks are not allowed onboard. However, portable oxygen concentrators are allowed on planes. “Before, I couldn’t go on with an oxygen tank, but that’s not going to stop me anymore.” Now the sky is the limit for Richard, and he’s finally going to fly with his son.

The Tiny Little Concentrator

Rebecca H. of Elon, NC loves her OxyGo Fit portable oxygen concentrator provided by Open-Aire. She lives in an assisted living community, and her portable concentrator or "pocketbook" as she calls it, has made a world of difference for her. With it, she's able to go out and do things around town. There’s a local college nearby, where she takes classes on biblical dance and literature.  It's quiet enough that she is able to run it the entire time without interrupting the teacher’s lectures. Her family also drops by for visits and they'll take her out to lunch or to do some shopping.

Her portable concentrator has also gotten a lot of notice around the community.  Rebecca says, "We go to the dining room for our meals, and there are two other ladies [that] are on oxygen besides me. They have huge tanks. They keep asking me over and over again about my tiny little concentrator."  She tells them that Open-Aire is the place to go!

"They're the Best"

Larry B. of Lois, SC learned about Open-Aire from a source that even surprised us.  Larry had been on oxygen for about seven years, and used a portable oxygen concentrator during that time. He liked being able to pick up and go and not having to be tied down to stationary concentrators. When it broke down, his old provider refused to repair it or even politely offer an alternative solution.  “They told me I didn’t really need it, and it was only a convenience,” said Larry. “Their customer service had always been bad, but this was the last straw.”

Larry checked another local oxygen provider, and while they were friendly they couldn’t provide him with a portable concentrator.  However, they did give him a very nice suggestion.  “They told me when it comes to portable oxygen, Open-Aire is the company you want to work with. They’re the best,” says Larry. “When one company tells you to check out a competitor, you should listen.”

With a recommendation from the competition, Larry went to Open-Aire for the portable oxygen concentrator he was looking for, and also got the customer service he wanted.  “My doctor had just changed practices, and was still getting up to speed in his new office. Open-Aire helped him out and made things real easy for him.”  Now Larry is back to being able to pick up and go anytime and anywhere he wants.
