THANKS for allowing me to provide you with info! I do hope I can be of help! I’m honest, disclose all details for you, and don’t hide or falsify information, which is sadly becoming evermore common in this industry.
My website is www.hyperbariccentral.com. Explore blogs, videos and articles in the research section. Look at it to see chambers for all sorts of uses, then come back to me with your questions! O2 concentrators are in accessories. (go down the home page to About Hyperbaric Therapy…it gives an analogy for you about how it works)
I have various ways you can view and compare chambers on my site. You can click on navigation bar under ‘chambers’ and find chambers listed by brand or by size and price. I posted several pics with each item to get a better idea of size.
A great deal of information is available according to condition in my blogs (under information) and great videos and articles on how the chamber works.
Please read on and come back with questions.
Before you begin to compare chambers against one another here are some points.
- There are only 3 HYPERBARIC COMPANIES built in the US. And, only these, are monitored by the FDA for honesty, integrity and quality. If you buy in Canada, China etc, you won’t have the same protection. The chamber that calls themselves “the Cadillac,” because of their hefty price-tag, I will call the “Competitor” (inquire for name), Newtowne Hyperbarics, and Summit to Sea
- So based on this benefit, you can also find out which brands FDA is reporting on for accidents or quality incidents. Note there is an FDA website called MAUDE that reports adverse event reports: accidents and incidents of chambers according to brand that is reported by owners for buyer awareness. Check out below and notice which brands are splitting on the seams, blowing zippers and have windows that rupture or break on the seam. This will allow you to know if a brand is incident free (if not on the page): Maude Report
- Oxygen Concentrators: In addition I summarized incidents of non-disclosure by HBOT dealers so that you can be aware of and questions you should ask when you shop for a chamber/concentrator ‘Bundle’ — info commonly withheld to consumers: Select the right Oxygen Concentrator
(free shipping for all chambers. The 34″ & 40″ include a mattress in the price. 2 year warranty)
(free shipping for all chambers except shallow dive. The 40″ only includes a mattress. 2 year warranty)
The zipper closure on “Competitor” chamber utilizes 2 zippers with a urethane panel with a ‘flap’ to hold the zippers. That panel will, potentially, stretch with use and this stretching may cause you to have to manipulate the zipper to adjust it from the wear.
Newtowne Hyperbaric chamber is manufactured with 3 zippers that are held in place with a seam. So there’s no manipulating the zipper as the chamber ages. Many people like the Newtowne because they use 3 ply urethane rather than 2 which makes Newtowne very durable. Newtowne uses a Superior zipper that won’t require waxing and the zippers are exceptionally durable. Newtowne Superior zippers withstand the pressure of the chamber and prevent the pressure from impacting the material.
If ever your zippers need any repair keep in mind, Newtowne is the only company that will repair your zippers with the same machines they built your chamber with. The other brands use alternative methods. This means they won’t end up like the original LIKE NEW CONDITION.
The Summit to Sea chamber has a 2 zipper, stable system protocol that also implements a set of 4 buckles.This set up won’t stretch either and won’t require future manipulation. Some people like the ease of the Summit buckles.
The Newtowne Hyperbarics Chambers
Newtowne builds everything inhouse, from top to bottom, rather than hiring a manufacture to produce. The other’s hire a specialized factory in NY. The advantage of self manufacture is you receive superior materials at a lower price, since there’s no need of having to pay a middleman.
- Warranty is 2 years. The “Competitor” had been 1 year but in 2018 raised their prices to price in a 5 year warranty. Both Newtowne and Summit to Sea offer the 5 year warranty but it is optional rather than building the price over the extra warranty.
- Any future repair though Newtowne is less costly and “like-new”, because the chamber is repaired in-house. The wait-time is minimal, whereas if you have to repair outside with “Competitor” chamber, there will likely be a long wait (I have heard up to 4 months).
- You also get steel frame vs PVC, so it won’t warp over time.
- You get a 3 ply urethane vs 2 ply so less stretch potential and less wear and tear over time.
- Their middle zipper is top notch. No greasing and it’s specially designed to actually strengthen the chamber against the pressure to prevent wear and tear. No need to use grease.
- Newtowne’s 34″ chamber includes an extra second auxiliary valve for a second oxygen concentrator. Summit has just one auxiliary valve.
- Newtowne usually includes upgrades as part of the price (ie: Mattress). Shipping is always free for all chambers.
- Newtowne has never been reported in Maude’s accident and incident report. Never had any unwanted surprises.
- The greatest benefit is the window is a heavier acrylic that doesn’t bubble out. If you think about pressure control, you need pressure 100% at every spot in the chamber, or else the pressure builds into places with things like the “Competitor’s” bubbled out windows. This undo pressure inside a bubbled out window ultimately wears out seams causing ruptures, tears and worn out seams (see Maude report). Since the “Competitor” has often experienced tears in the seam (see Maude report), price for repair runs between $1k and $4k to repair and because it gets repaired out of house, there is a month or more wait time.
- Newtowne Chambers tend it be longer (see sizes per item page)
- Newtowne offers valve 2 ports on their 34″ inch hyperbaric for a second oxygen concentrator, compared to 1 valve port on Summit’s 33″ Dive.
SUMMIT TO SEA
- Summit uses a bright white material for a low claustrophobic feel.
- Summit includes an alarm that goes off if the compressor quits for safety
- Summit now includes a gauge so that you can see the pressure while inside the chamber.
- Summit offers 2 compressor / motors. Newtowne offers the second as an upgraded option for $250.
- Both Summit and Newtowne are privately owned. This being said, if there is ever any problem you deal with kind, grass roots owners that care about their brands and will go out of their way to help you and not unknown customer service reps.
