Living with Oxygen Therapy - Inspirational Stories and Images - Part 2

As long as you want to keep doing the things you love, where there's a will, there's a way! We have put together inspiring oxygen stories and images directly from our customers. The stories include riding on a Harley Davidson with a Respironics EverGo on the countryside to enjoying a rollercoaster at Disneyland or swimming with a portable concentrator.

Using a portable oxygen concentrator is like giving you the gift of health and freedom once again. They require no refills as oxygen tanks do, and as long as you have charged up batteries, you can go virtually anywhere, and no all the things you could before.

Get inspired as these real-life oxygen users share their personal stories; they are just a few people who haven't let the need for oxygen therapy interrupt their lives. Here are oxygen therapy users sharing their inspirational oxygen stories and pictures.

Annette was riding her Harley Davidson Deuce with a Respironics EverGo portable oxygen concentrator. Here she is in enjoying the view during her motorcycle ride through the countryside of Ohio.

Roxlyn Swimming with a High flow Liquid Portable Concentrator

Roxlyn was swimming with a high flow liquid portable oxygen concentrator. Swimming is a physically beneficial form of exercise but can be difficult for people who require oxygen therapy.

    Reading the portion of this advertisement with the individual enjoying her motorcycle while being adapted to breathing with a portable concentrator is very inspirational.
    My question is I ride a Harley Davidson which has a strong vibration going through it ,is a strong constant vibration an issue for a portable concentrator to function safe enough for me to be confident and enjoy my motorcycle again ?

      Hi Alan,

      You should be fine if you have it in a pack on you. The vibration should not affect the function of the concentrator. Just have it in pack on you back or side, just not in a saddle bag or on the cycle where the vibrations are greatest. Happy riding and send us a pic!

      All the best.

      Love it! The whole design of these machines is to be free of tanks and be able to enjoy life. Sounds like you are taking 2 scoops of life and enjoying every minute. Thanks for the comment.

    Ive got sever COPD stage 4. I'm 65 and have been on O2 4 years now. It's very hard for me to back my bike up as I have flair ups with anything that is strenuous. But once I'm riding with my simply go concentrator I'm a happy guy.

    I'm planning a trip from here in Florida to Up State NY and back in April 2020. Never Give up. I've used m4 size oxygen tanks before I got my concentrator. I'll probably take 2 tanks with me to NY just for back up, as I CANT be without. God Bless all of you.
