Is there a guarantee that the OXYGEN-CELL-TRAINING will help me?
There is no guarantee, but if used correctly and with the right indication, OXYGEN-CELL-TRAINING helps the vast majority of people.
Does the feeling of shortness of breath occur during exercise?
No, you hardly notice the difference between oxygen-rich and oxygen-poor air, only the air may smell slightly different. You may notice that your heart beats a little faster and stronger at the time of the low-oxygen phase.
The OXYGEN-CELL-TRAINING is absolutely harmless. Your heart rate and your oxygen saturation in the blood are continuously monitored and recorded. If critical values are reached, the device recognizes this immediately and counteracts it, e.g. with oxygen supply or automatically interrupts the training.
What are the hygiene measures?
You will receive your own respiratory mask including virus filter. Please bring this back with you to every training session. There are also filters in the ventilator itself, so that disease transmission via the breathing air can be ruled out. Furthermore, the usual hygiene measures of a medical practice are of course observed and guaranteed after each training session.
How does ventilation via the mask work?
The ventilator (Cellair®) is a highly developed medical device from the company Cellgym®. Ambient air is drawn in through several filters and oxygen can be extracted from the air or additionally added via a specific process. The air then enters the lungs through a respiratory tube via a respiratory mask.
Are there any negative side effects?
The OXYGEN-CELL-TRAINING is practically free of side effects. Some people feel a little tired at the beginning after the training, others immediately feel much more vital.
Where can I get more information about this topic?
I recommend the book “Cell Training” by Dr. Egor Egorov (ISBN 978-9822267-1-2). He is one of Europe’s leading hypoxia experts. The book is written in a very informative and exciting way for both laymen and experts. It has inspired me personally to look further into the subject of oxygen cell therapy.
