Why We’re the Best
Hypoxico is the pioneer and world leader in simulated altitude, with multiple patents to our name. For over 25 years, we have been building hypoxic chambers all over the globe for athletes, mountaineers, scientists, doctors, the military, and everyone in between.
While other companies have copied our technology and designs, Hypoxico remains unrivaled in quality, innovation, and expertise.
Our team is made up of athletes, mountaineers, retired military, and engineers who understand the science of hypoxia and utilize it for their own personal training needs.
A Few of Our Clients
While our roots are in mountaineering and acclimatization, hypoxic chambers have found an important place among a multitude of fields. The ever-growing list of uses includes:
Our custom designs integrate the best quality components to achieve the specific parameters for each unique project, and intelligent features ensure an optimal user experience.

- Wall mount of sample draw options for oxygen sensor(s)
- Highly accurate and long-lasting zirconium sensor cell technology
- Fully-integrated CO2 sensor available
- Optional “placebo switch” providing normal O2% for controlled research trials
- Removal of hydrocarbons, odors and 99.9% of airborne contaminants
- Secure, lockable steel cabinet facilitating easy maintenance and servicing
- Password protected, multi-level access
- Easy to use touchscreen interface
K2 High Flow Series
Our premier commercial grade system, built for any sized space or number of users. It’s capable of providing up to 16,000 liters per minute of hypoxic air, making it ideal for large chambers and multiple athlete systems.
By utilizing an appropriately-sized industrial compressor supplying our scalable K2 Cabinet, high flow rates of clean, filtered, hypoxic air are supplied to the altitude chamber. Typically, a dedicated mechanical room with three-phase power is required for these systems.
Our standalone generator that can be linked in an array of multiple units to incrementally increase flow rate. Ideal for smaller chambers with fewer users, and in locations such as homes where mechanical space is limited or only single phase power is available.
The HYP’s ruggedized construction and geometry make these “stackable” in a wider range of mechanical spaces. With an integrated secondary cooling fan, the HYP units are well-suited to supply all small-to medium-sized altitude chambers.
How Altitude is Simulated
An altitude chamber, also known as a hypoxic chamber, is an enclosed space that simulates the hypoxic (low-oxygen) conditions found at high altitude. In the past, this was an extremely limited technology available to very few, but Hypoxico’s innovations have made high altitude simulation practical and available to all.
The Old Way
At true altitude, available oxygen in the air is reduced as a result of a decrease in atmospheric pressure. This is known as hypobaric hypoxia, and simulating altitude in this way requires placing a chamber under negative pressure by sealing it and then evacuating a portion of the air.
Not only does this require heavy-duty industrial building materials, but the pressure differential means that specific safety measures must be followed during each use in order to prevent decompression sickness and barotrauma to the ears. In addition, the simulated altitude must be completely reset each and every time the door is opened, making it impossible for users to come and go freely without incorporating expensive antechambers and airlocks.
A hypobaric chamber is incredibly expensive and oftentimes impractical, severely limiting the applications for use.
The Hypoxico Solution
Hypoxico altitude chambers solve these issues by leaving the air pressure unchanged, and instead reducing the actual oxygen percentage of the air. This is known as normobaric hypoxia, and it’s achieved by drawing in ambient air, reducing the proportion of oxygen molecules, then supplying fresh, filtered hypoxic air to the chamber.
While this technique for reducing available oxygen differs from how it occurs at true altitude, the number of oxygen molecules taken in per breath of air is identical, making it an excellent method for simulating altitude.
Best of all, the equal air pressure both inside and outside of the chamber means that standard building materials can be used, and people can safely and freely walk in and out without compromising the simulated altitude or experiencing any negative effects from differences in pressure.
A Hypoxico normobaric chamber is safer, infinitely more flexible, and far more cost effective.
