HaMed SA is an approved home-care provider by EOPYY, certified to rent home-care oxygen devices to Greek citizens. Our services include the rental of oxygen devices for use at home which cost 90 euro per month and is fully covered by EOPYY, the Public Healthcare Provider in Greece.
The oxygen devices (also sometimes called “oxygen generator” or oxygen concetrator) is a medical device used to deliver oxygen to those who require it. People may require it if they have a condition that causes or results in low levels of oxygen in their blood. These oxygen concentrators are normally obtained via prescription and therefore cannot be purchased over the counter. Oxygen concentrators are powered by plugging in to an electrical outlet.
Several parts make up a concentrator, including a compressor, sieve bed filter, and circuit boards. An oxygen concentrator has a compressing element, but it should not be confused with compressed oxygen or an oxygen tank. Whereas a tank has a set amount of oxygen that it dispenses, a concentrator filters in air, compresses it, and delivers air continuously. The air supply will never run out. Instead of refilling compressed air, the concentrator just needs access to power.
In cases of electricity power cuts, HaMed SA provides oxygen tanks of 3, 5, 10 & 20 liters that are capable of supplying medical oxygen, without the need of electircity.
All home-care oxygen devices provided by HaMed SA are covered by 24/7 technical support, and in case of technical malfunction the device is instantly replaced.
In special situations where the home-care patient is required to travel by plane, boat or car, portable oxygen concetrators can be provided for rental, which feature high battery capacity, that can reach 12 hours working time, with adequate oxygen flow (up to 5l/min).
HaMed SA also provides short-term oxygen devices rental, for patients who travel to the island of Crete either for holidays or for other short-term purposes.
