Key Features of SeQual Eclipse 5 Portable Oxygen Concentrator

Benefits of using SeQual Eclipse 5 Portable O2 Concentrator

The autoSAT® technology is especially helpful for detecting differences in your breathing. No adjustment is necessary, as the autoSAT® automatically controls the amount of oxygen you receive.

The Eclipse 5 concentrator also provides an average oxygen purity of 90 percent.
