This method of treatment to help the body rejuvenate and stimulate its cells to regenerate more efficiently is still relatively unpopular. However, it is gradually gaining a growing numbers of followers among patients, doctors and scientists. In Poland alone, more than 30 normobaric chambers manufactured by the Ekonstal Group – the only certified manufacturer of this type of equipment in Poland – have been put into operation in the last three years. Our oxygen capsules also find customers from all over the world, including Spain, Malta and Canada.
What is a normobaric chamber and what are they used for?
What are their possible applications?
Here is a summary of the key points concerning normobaric therapy as a guidestone to understanding its essence and its impact on improving overall physical and mental wellbeing.
Atmosphere inside the chamber
The parameters of the atmosphere inside the normobaric chamber are altered and different from the normal Earth's atmosphere. These altered atmospheric parameters – according to the findings of scientists – can contribute to a faster regeneration of the body. The alterations involves an increase in pressure and the concentrations of oxygen, carbon dioxide and hydrogen.
Normobaric chambers manufactured by the Ekonstal Group as the only products in Poland to have been studied by a team of scientists from the Faculty of Medicine of Collegium Medicum at the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. The results of this study have confirmed the pro-wellness benefits of normobaric chamber applications.

Compared to the Earth’s atmosphere, the parameters of the atmosphere inside the normobaric chamber are altered to create conditions as favourable as possible for the functioning of the human body. The pressure is increased to 1,500 hPa (which is approximately 500 hPa above the standard sea level pressure), and as scientists ensure, this level ensures the optimal course of life processes.
The air quality inside the chamber is monitored by decontamination units, available as optional equipment. These are special filtration devices that eliminate microorganisms, bacteria, viruses and chemicals harmful to human health.
Export product appreciated in the world
The products offered by the Ekonstal Group are appreciated by both Polish customers and customers from other parts of the world, incl. North America.
Physiotherapy and normobaric therapy
Oxygen sessions in a normobaric chamber can support the rehabilitation process after physical trauma, contusions or accidents. Effective oxygenation of the tissues can speed up the healing of micro-injuries to tendons, joints and muscles, accelerating the return to full fitness and good shape.
The accounts of people who have benefited from normobaric oxygen sessions confirm their positive effects on wellbeing and quality of life. This type of regenerative session can benefit seniors as well as middle-aged adults, teenagers and children, regardless of their state of health.
An investment that pays off
Normobaric therapy is an excellent investment both financially and health-wise. It brings tangible benefits to people who use the normobaric chamber to improve their wellbeing. It also guarantees a high rate of return for those businesses who have decided to invest in a normobaric chamber to provide oxygen therapy sessions as a part of their commercial operations.
Quality and safety
The safe use of low-pressure normobaric chambers is certified by the declaration of conformity and the CE marking. The operating safety is also certified by the manufacturer’s compliance with national fire safety and construction engineering requirements. Manufacturing and testing processes are in conformity with European standards.
Research conducted by scientists around the world on the use of oxygen therapies during recovery from the COVID-19 infection confirms the high potential of the method’s efficacy. The oxygen therapy sessions have helped many patients regain breathing comfort while accelerating the recovery of organs attacked by the virus.
Better functioning of the human body
Oxygen therapy sessions stimulate the body to work more efficiently on many different levels. They can help maintain good physical condition and have a positive impact on the mental and emotional areas in individuals.
Ear pressure equalisation methods
During compression and decompression in the airlock, a discomfort can be experienced in the middle ear due to pressure variations. The techniques commonly used by divers can help overcome the discomfort, like ‘pumping’ the ears and swallowing saliva vigorously while clenching the nostrils shut.
O2 – carbon dioxide
The increased carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere of the normobaric chamber favours the absorption of oxygen by the human body. It makes it easier for oxygen to separate from haemoglobin and reach the tissues more quickly, particularly where oxygen is needed the most.
Normobaric sessions are not a medical procedure. Normobaric oxygen therapy is inspired by nature and is based on harnessing its potential. For this reason, it can be used by everyone, regardless of age or health condition. Contraindications are few and include, but are not limited to: haemorrhage, pregnancy, cataract, viral infections with fever, ear and sinus disorders, inflammation of the upper respiratory tract, untreated major tooth defects, implanted heart pacers, hypoglycaemia in diabetics, conditions after chest surgery, and claustrophobia.
The participants of oxygen sessions in a normobaric chamber can use the dispenser of RedOx water. It is hydrogen-saturated water with a negative ORP (oxidation-reduction potential), a source of extremely effective antioxidants.
A series of 10 two-hour oxygen therapy sessions in a normobaric chamber provides a number of benefits to the human body. It is normally recommended that a single session lasts at least 2 hours. Because the occupants breathe a specifically composed gas mixture instead of pure oxygen (as in a hyperbaric chamber), the stay in the chamber can be extended to 4 or 6 hours, for example.
The oxygen concentration in the atmosphere in a normobaric chamber is nearly twice that of the Earth's atmosphere. Its uptake by the tissues is efficient due to the increased air pressure and carbon dioxide level.
Oxygen therapy sessions in a normobaric chamber are a precious alternative to various beauty and spa treatments. The sessions speed up the metabolism, making it easier to maintain a slim figure. They improve the quality of sleep, which reduces fatigue and stimulates more radiant appearance.
This is an effective antioxidant that helps the body fight free radicals. The increased hydrogen concentration of the gas mixture breathed with in a normobaric chamber may contribute to faster neutralisation of oxidants and counteract the effects of oxidative stress.
