"Our mission is to provide a safe and reliable portable emergency oxygen system that can be placed in any location, wherever an emergency may arise."
The Rapid Oxygen Company is a medical technology company that primarily develops, manufactures and markets, portable oxygen generators used to deliver emergency oxygen to the commercial and consumer markets. Rapid Oxygen was founded in 2013 as a Delaware corporation to develop, manufacture and sell a portable chemical oxygen generator for emergency use.
Rapid Oxygen provides our mobile device, the R15, to safely store and deliver oxygen in order to supplant dangerous high pressure oxygen cylinders currently in use. The only other sources of oxygen are oxygen concentrators and liquid oxygen, both requiring electric or battery power. Since the R15 doesn’t require a power source and can be safely stored for an extended period of time, oxygen produced by chemical means is the obvious solution.
The R15 meets or exceeds FDA guidelines for portable chemical oxygen generators, through Rapid Oxygen’s recently patented delivery system. The R15 produces 100% breathable oxygen at flows greater than 6 liters/minute for more than 15 minutes with acceptable safe temperatures on all of its’ surfaces – the only oxygen solution for emergency use, as well as recreation and military applications.
We hope to have the Company’s product alongside every automatic emergency defibrillator (AED) and fire extinguisher, as well as a backup to the millions of electric and battery powered oxygen concentrators. We expect the R15 will be used in conjunction with the more than 9 million AED’s installed throughout the world in public spaces like shopping malls, airports, golf clubs, and sports venues to name a few – public places where oxygen is not immediately available. We also hope that consumers will utilize the R15 for home safety in case of a fire, where a few minutes of oxygen can save lives, as well as in apartments buildings and office buildings - we seek to make the R15 as ubiquitous, readily available and accessible as a fire extinguisher.
