GCE Healthcare has announced today the launch of the Zen-O LiteTM lightweight portable oxygen concentrator (POC) – its second POC launched this year to increase mobility for patients that require supplemental oxygen therapy.

The Zen-O LiteTM is one of the lightest portable oxygen therapy devices on the market, weighing in at 2.5kg (5.5lbs). It delivers oxygen on demand at an output of 1,050ml per minute and is extremely easy to operate.

For patients who need more oxygen, there’s the Zen-OTM, which was launched in January 2016. It has a higher output of two litres of oxygen per minute and is also portable at 4.66kg (10lbs).

Both concentrators have been specially designed to relieve patients with disorders such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), including emphysema and chronic bronchitis.

”Zen-O Lite is one of the lightest portable oxygen devices on the market.”

Mike Galvin, Managing Director of GCE Healthcare

Mike Galvin, Managing Director of GCE Healthcare, said, “The Zen-O Lite extends our homecare product range to provide more choice and freedom for patients with respiratory disorders. Zen-O Lite is one of the lightest portable oxygen devices on the market and will help patients who are more active to continue to be mobile and do the activities they love.”

Both the Zen-O Lite and Zen-O come with a battery, DC and AC power cords, and a carry bag, a pull cart (Zen-O only) plus a three-year device warranty. They are also easy to maintain, with sieve modules that are easily replaced in the field, avoiding the need to return the device to a service centre, which in turn reduces the cost of ownership for home oxygen providers.

 “Zen-O Lite and Zen-O represent a major investment in high-quality innovative products by our parent company, GCE Group, in GCE Healthcare’s homecare business,” added Galvin. “The devices are devised by our dedicated engineering team at our Innovation Centre in St Helens, UK and designed and manufactured in the UK to relevant, international standards. As part of GCE Group’s global supply chain, we’re also able to deliver our range, parts and accessories, efficiently and promptly.”
