Respironics SimplyGo Mini Backpack
Does carrying your SimplyGo Mini portable oxygen concentrator with the standard carrying case hold you back from being as efficient as possible with the task at hand?
Do you wish you could enjoy your oxygen therapy treatment with a completely hands-free option? Well now you can thanks to the intuitive design and patient friendly features of the Respironics SimplyGo Mini backpack.
Mobility Simplified with Hands-Free Operation
Let’s face it, you’re busy, between regular trips to the grocery store, catching up with old friends, traveling and spending time with your family, you need both of your hands for varying tasks throughout the day.
The addition of the backpack will take the SimplyGo Mini out of your hands and onto your back to provide 100% hands free operation.
Compatible with Both Battery Types
Just like with the SimplyGo Mini carrying case, the backpack also features a zipper extending bottom to allow the usage of both the 8-cell and 16-cell batteries.
When using the standard 8-cell battery simply insert the machine into the backpack and you’re ready to take on the day. On the other hand, using the extended 16-cell battery requires you to unzip the base of the backpack to extend the base of the backpack to fit the larger battery.
Enhanced Comfort with Adjustable Padded Shoulder Straps
Enjoy nothing but the highest level of comfort with the backpack, offering two padded shoulder straps that allow you to adjust the fitting to find an optimal fitting specifically for you.
How to Adjust the Backpack:
- Put the Backpack on Your Back
- Pull on the Bottom of Both Straps to Start Adjusting
- Adjust Until You Find the Most Comfortable Fit
Streamlined Cannula Access
What good is a backpack without an efficient way to thread a nasal cannula from the device to you? That just wouldn’t be beneficial to patients like yourself.
Instead Respironics enhanced the patient experience and designed the backpack to feature a cutout specifically for oxygen tubing.
Additional Storage Compartment
This feature is especially important, as the additional zippered side storage pocket allows you to travel with small personal items such as your cellphone, wallet, and oxygen prescription (something you should always have accessible, especially while traveling) in one convenient location.
Two Optional Colorways
The backpack for the SimplyGo Mini portable oxygen machine comes in two elegant colors, black or brown.
Accessing the Control Panel
Unlike the carrying case, the backpack does not feature an open area over the control panel. However, by simply unzipping the main front zipper you will have a clear view of the control panel to allow system or flow setting changes on the fly.
