Inogen At Home Review Video

At Home is a brilliant product by Inogen.

Lowest weight, size, power consumption, ease of use and features like detachable power cord, cart roller & push button flow controls clearly make Inogen At Home is the best home oxygen concentrator in market as of 9th April 2015. The Concentrator is comparable in weight and size with some Continuous Flow Portable Oxygen Concentrators by other manufacturers.

Being new and 1st home oxygen concentrator by Inogen, the product still needs to prove its credibility.

Highly recommended for patients who wish to carry their home oxygen concentrator with them while they travel.
