A few questions to ask LiveO2 imitators...
About Adaptive Contrast
About Oxygen Only EWOT Trainers
About any System
A few things imitators may say about LiveO2 to mislead you...
Our masks are superior quality and provide the highest airflow options. Imitators often misrepresent LiveO2 mask systems to confuse shoppers.
LiveO2 Masks in a Nutshell...
Standard vs Premium Masks in a Nutshell
|Multi-user Environments||Yes||Expensive||Personal Item for each person|
|Demo Environments||Yes||No - Difficult to sterilize between users in demo. Expensive to have enough masks.||Standard mask preferable|
|Weak Breathers||Beneficial||Ideal - Zero to high resistance to increase strength||Airflow resistance strengthens respiratory muscles|
|Users with injured lungs||Beneficial||Neutral||Partial pressure swing in lungs improves CO2 and O2 transfer during inhalation and exhalation.|
|Large & Small Faces||Acceptable||Ideal - 4 sizes securely fit all users||Standard is usable 95% of the time|
|Aggressive Athletes||Acceptable||Ideal with optional airflow resistance inserts|

About Cleaning Masks...
Imitations assert that positive pressure is intended to make breathing easier. This misrepresents the science of breathing - see below.
Positive pressure is a performance reducing gimmick to compensate for high airflow resistance from lengthy hoses and repurposed valves.
Confirm that imitations will mount safely and securely on your exercise equipment before purchase.
LiveO2 adopted a neutral airflow pressure design because airflow resistance is part of effective breathing...
Nature uses vacuum during inhale to pull CO2 out of your blood, and pressure during exhale to push O2 into your blood.
These pressures are the force that moves gasses across the alveolar membrane in the lungs.
Mild airflow resistance exercises breathing muscles to make LiveO2 users stronger breathers over time
Positive pressure reduces breathing efficiency...
Our imitators represent their products as capable simulating an altitude of 25,000 feet, or 8.1% oxygen levels.
They apparently don't know that most humans will pass out when exercising with air with less than about 10% oxygen.
Do you really want an imitation?
Do you trust anyone that offers a product that enables you, your family or your customers to pass out during use?
Our imitators combine 8.1% oxygen with hard to switch Banjo Pond Valve to switch air supply.
The yellow lever is hard to turn and nearly impossible to securely mount the on exercise equipment. Imagine turning this valve while you are about to pass out...
LiveO2 invented Oxygen-only Reservoir...
LiveO2 Standard is the standard oxygen training reservoir. It is competitively priced and sold as a reservoir only system.
We urge customers to explore Adaptive Contrast because it is very superior to oxygen-only training. We know the biggest investment our users make is the time they spend exercising.
This is why we strongly promote Adaptive Contrast over LiveO2 Standard.
Don't buy an oxygen-rich-only or EWOT system before you understand Adaptive Contrast...
Imitators will not tell you that oxygen-only systems are performance limited because oxygen is a vasoconstrictor...
A vasoconstrictor reduces blood flow by narrowing the diameter of the vascular system. This effect has been known for about 100 years.
Imitators who say Adaptive Contrast is unnecessary for maximum oxygenation do not understand oxygen training or are misleading you.
This medical reference explains that oxygen rich breathing mixtures reduce blood flow volume to the heart by 29% Blood flow is reduced to all organs.
This is why oxygen-only systems perform poorly compared to Adaptive Contrast.
Why is Adaptive Contrast Better?
Adaptive Contrast uses low-oxygen air to prime your body for oxygen. This effect prevents the oxygen-vasoconstrictor effect from restricting blood flow to tissue.
Adaptive Contrast outperforms oxygen-only systems several-fold. Don't take our word for it. Dr. Lou Trovato is a long-time LiveO2 Adaptive Contrast user who decided to install LiveO2 Standard in his office. Here is his story...
Adaptive Contrast outperforms oxygen-only systems because...
- Every customer who trains for performance needs Adaptive Contrast
- Every customer who is physically challenged needs Adaptive Contrast
Adaptive Contrast in a Nutshell...
Adaptive Contrast vs Oxygen Only

|O2 Tissue Penetration||Moderate||Optimal|
|Circulating Volume:||Restricted Flow||Maximum Flow|
|Workout Length:||Max 15 Min||Indefinite|
|Max Users Per Day:||8 Users||19 Users|

LiveO2 delivers a pure and clean experience...
Fill Time is determined by the air separator. The 900 liter reservoir fills completely in about 90 minutes from a 10 LPM generator.
The white reservoir assures cleanness inside and out. A zippered port enables cleaning, inspection and prevents over-inflation.
LiveO2 reservoirs hold oxygen for hours with an ultra-thin membrane.
No other brand in the world has gone to the lengths we have to ensure you are getting the safest, most effective and highest quality products and materials in the world.
Don’t be fooled when imitators use terms like FDA approved and medical grade...
These classifications do not indicate the physical reality that the air contained in any reservoir is exposed to over 70 square feet of an oxygen barrier.
LiveO2 learned that only way to have pure air is to:
- Minimize the barrier material to minimize embodied plastics because of the chemicals used in any barrier will diffuse and be trapped inside the reservoir;
- Don't completely seal the reservoirs to allow the tiny amount of chemicals to escape - instead we added a zipper for inspection, cleaning and rapid empty
Food and medical grade plastics testing specifications do not measure Volatile Organic Compounds or odor.
Users know LiveO2 is clean with every breath.
LiveO2 does not offer upgradeable reservoirs because we are committed to a safe, diverse and uncluttered workout experience.
LiveO2 Standard customers who decide to upgrade to Adaptive Contrast in the first 90 days can exchange their reservoir for full purchase credit.
Our policy protects LiveO2 customers dangling excess hoses and clunky valves - and assures they discover the upside of Adaptive Contrast before it's too late.
Compare the LiveO2 switch to an imitation valve.
13 seconds with LiveO2 switch. US Patent 2019010126096 A1 prohibits imitators from duplication for 17 years.
1:56 min. Assembly and attachment difficulty.
Things to consider before you purchase an imitation...
- How will the valve body securely to the exercise equipment?
- Will the attachment secure enough tolerate the torque of changing the valve position?
- Is the mounting position accessible during exercise?
- Will hoses interfere with operation of exercise equipment?
- Do hoses remain attached when valve position changes?
- Is it possible to easily share valve between exercise equipment like in a sauna or alternative exercise equipment?
Don't be misled by upgradeable reservoirs that are cumbersome and incompatible with most workout equipment...
- 1Incompatible with most workout equipment where the hands move during exercise, like assault bikes, rebounders and etc.
- 2Rely on external valves that are difficult or impossible to mount on most exercise equipment.
- 3Use extra hoses that are unsightly and always in the way, create safety and usability issues
- 4Tie users to a single piece of exercise equipment because it is very difficult to move the valve.
