"I am a 48-yea-old male who lives in Tomball, Texas. My 15-year-old son and
I climbed Kilimanjaro in late June. Despite ascending over 2000 meters (6600
feet) in the final 32 hours of our excursion, we never had serious symptoms
of high altitude sickness. The most severe symptoms either of us had were
mild headaches on a couple of occasions. Contrary to the experiences of
others we encountered, we did not suffer from nausea, vomiting or delirium.
We also took moderate doses of Diamox on the last 3 days of the climb.

I attribute much of our success to our decision to purchase and use for
acclimatization to portable Altipower units. We each trained for five weeks,
usually six days per week. I took this precaution because we live at
sea-level and neither one of us had ever hiked in a mountainous area or
climbed anything other than stairs.

There is no reason for so many people to suffer while they climb (and I saw
plenty of people suffering and one emergency rescue). One should enjoy, not
merely endure, the summit experience."

Hi Oleg, just to say we have reached the top of Kilimanjaro thanks to the
hypoxicator, it definitely made a tremendous difference, I was the only
person to not suffer from altitude sickness at all! and I reached the top
first by at least 20 mins in a blizzard!!

Thank you so much,

Best Wishes

I climbed Kilimanjaro last year and was only 1 of 7 in a
team of 24 that made it to the top. I was the first woman along with two
men from our team to get there first. I also did not suffer from
altitude sickness thanks to the hypoxicator, it definitely made a
tremendous difference. To be honest whether it's for a trek or just to
improve stamina and fitness this is worthwhile using.

Take care and best regards

“…Before purchasing the hypoxicator I attempted Kili in Feb. 2000 and again in Feb. 2001 and then Mt. Everest Base Camp in October 2002, but succumbed to HAPE each time.
After using the Go2Altitude … I reached the summit of Kilimanjaro. (19,340 feet) I never felt as though my SpO2 was in any danger of falling below 84%...
For me the hypoxicator works.

  "I wanted to personally thank you again for you wonderful product. The hypoxicator was an essential part of my training before leaving on the Mt. Everest expedition. I truly believe that because of the combination of intermittent hypoxic training and knowledge of high altitude practices, I showed NO signs of HAPE, HACE, or an other high altitude related illness until I got above 8,000 meters.

I was able to reach the summit in extremely high wind, snow, and whiteout conditions, and spent 3 days and nights in "The Death Zone", reaching 8,000+ meters without oxygen. I also managed to best my current world record for jumping rope at altitude by jumping rope at 8,000 meters.

I am a big believer in your company and it has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt what your equipment can do for individuals looking for the fundamental edge in their particular discipline. I look forward to working with you here in the USA.

"..I made it to the summit [Mt. Everest] no bother. Next time I might try without supp. oxygen.


Dr John Hellemans, Christchurch, New Zealand. “We had our unit installed in our sportsmedicine clinic approximately 5 years ago . I am very happy with the results. We have had over 200 athletes, mountaineers and patients use IHT with excellent results and a response rate of roughly 70-80% (based on subjective perception, testing and or blood tests). All mountaineers we have treated for altitude acclimatisation have responded dramatically reporting significant fewer problems when arriving at altitude.”

Fletcher Derrik, MD

"I climbed Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, East Africa August, 2003, and know the IHT played a big part in my success. I did not get high altitude sickness. My personal physician became interested in the machine and we determined a 10% increase in my hemoglobin. I trained on the IHT for 30 days."

Tom Eanelli "..just got back from rainier no problem with altitude i really appreciate all you have done for my training next year killimanjaro

I have alway's been a believer in the benefits athletes recieve from
Altitude Training , and it came as no suprise when I saw technology had
progressed as much as to manufacture portable / armchair versions of an
Altitude / Hypoxic Trainer ...

This I read in 'Mens Journal' Magazine , April 2004 Edition ...

The Article made references to an American Altitude / Hypoxic Equipment
Supplier together with the manufacturers details themselves ...

Having read through both the suppliers website & that of the manufacturer ,
in turn wetting my appitite to try , I began making contact with local IHT
Centres , then laterly the manufacturers themselves ... Mr. Oleg Bassovitch

BIOMEDTECH AUSTRALIA Pty. Ltd. , who was happy to provide 'Full Product
Sponsorship' for myself , for my up-coming World Record Polar Ice Dives ...

I have since gone on to complete a 25 day course , (Maximum of 3 per year) ,
and have been greatly impressed with the results ...

I can now , not only hold my breath longer , static wise , but also hold my
breath whilst finning ; and as we all know , when you move parts of your
body whilst holding your breath , you deplete oxygen ...

Now saying that , this is by no means a miracle aid , but , should you be in
fairly good condition , athletic & health-wise , maintain a balanced diet ,
with beneficial vitamin supplement supply & train on a regular basis , this
aid will GREATLY improve your satmina and allow you to train at a much
higher level ...
