1. THE BEGINNING

This innovation initially came to life when…

We saw a child being gently pushed by his mother while breathing from an oxygen cylinder that was larger the child itself. We were surprised that no one had updated such unwieldy equipment. We decided to bring ”20th-century technology into the 21st century” by developing a smarter, lighter and more efficient oxygen system called Roam.

2. WHAT & HOW

The purpose of this innovation is to…

Roam is a smarter, lighter and more efficient oxygen cylinder system. Roam utilises the latest material and digital technology packaged into one unit.

Current oxygen cylinders available on the market are heavy, costly and require ongoing maintenance, contain enticing dials and switches that allow the user to alter the flow rate settings and, in general, can supply up to 30 minutes of oxygen.

3. PURPOSE & BENEFITS

This innovation improves on what came before because…

Roam is developed as an all-in-one product that aims to give full mobility and portability in one’s daily life without the financial and physical restrictions the current oxygen cylinder imposes. With the ability to cut a large percentage of the weight of a portable cylinder, the technology will spearhead an industry that hasn’t seen innovation in over a decade.

Its various benefits to the customer/end-user include…

Roam is:

  • Lighter & Safer
  • Smarter & Easier
  • Oxygen-efficient
  • Superior Aesthetics

4. COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

In the past, this problem was solved by…

With recent advances in medical technology and the improvement in healthcare systems, products like oxygen therapy equipment are often completely left out of the equation or become an “extra” attachment that may be tacked onto existing products. This is absurd and substandard to what should be expected in this day and age.

Its predecessors/competitors include…

Currently the global oxygen cylinder market is highly fragmented with more than 50 companies supplying oxygen globally for different purposes. Shifting economics will drive the push to composite cylinders to improve weight reduction within the healthcare sector.

5. TARGET MARKET

It is made for…

The global market for Medical Oxygen Systems is projected to reach US$1.6 billion by 2020, driven by rising incidence of respiratory diseases, growing preference for treatment at home, and product innovations. Yet systems like this remain largely inaccessible luxury for a significant proportion of the population.

It is available for sale through…
