There are some medical conditions, where people may need an external input of oxygen. This supply is provided to them by the help of oxygen concentrators.

These concentrators are powered with the help of both battery and electrical supply. For those running with battery, charger may be required. The important parts of an oxygen concentrator are compressor, sieve bed filter and circuit boards.

This machine is different from the traditional oxygen cylinders or tanks. Traditional containers do not process the air to generate oxygen supply. They have limited amount of oxygen filled inside.
