Compact and Portable Hyperlite Multi-Occupant Hyperbaric Chamber
PCCI, Inc. has partnered with SOS Hyperlite, Ltd.; the original developer and sole manufacturer of the Hyperlite Emergency Evacuation Hyperbaric Stretcher (EEHS), the only non-metallic hyperbaric chamber currently constructed in accordance with ASME PVHO-1 for Human Occupancy and meeting U.S. Navy Diving and Hyperbaric Systems Safety Certification. This partnership was originally formed in 2002 to manufacture and market a Government version of the EEHS. Since that time, the technology utilized on the EEHS has been upgraded to improve durability and manufacturing has shifted to the United States. The PCCI team now proposes to demonstrate the technical feasibility of extending the single occupancy EEHS technology to develop a two or three occupant, double-lock folding hyperbaric chamber meeting the SBIR subtopic technical requirements. This new compact, portable and light-weight chamber will allow the transfer of medics in and out at any time, to perform full hands-on medical care and treatment for even the most critically ill patients, while delivering hyperbaric oxygen, the treatment of choice for diving related pressure injuries. This Phase I effort will focus on the engineering to demonstrate the technical feasibility of manufacturing an ASME PVHO-1, and Case 12, compliant chamber capable of compressing occupants to 60 feet depth.
