Innovative Personal Altitude Simulator
No tent or chamber needed, this is a pretty cool device and seems as though it could work. Without having to sleeping in a chamber you can see the benifits of hypoxics by watching TV, reading a book, working on the computer by just wearing this device. AltiPower® is an innovative personal altitude simulator. A device that naturally enhances the performance and endurance of athletes, pre-acclimatises people travelling to altitude and improves the health and wellbeing of ordinary people.
How it works:
The air we breath in contains approximately 21% oxygen (by volume).
The air we exhale normally contains ¼ less oxygen compared to that inhaled, as well as moisture and carbon dioxide.
The AltiPower Personal Hypoxicator uses your own natural breathing process to produce reduced oxygen (hypoxic) air. Continuous breathing using AltiPower, with its patented, semi-closed, respiratory circuit, gradually decreases the oxygen content of the breathing air. This replicates the conditions of high altitude and with it, the benefits of alpine-like air. Price $1200
