** ECHM-EUBS Position Statement on the use of ‘mild hyperbaric therapies’ in humans

Within the European Union hyperbaric chambers are regarded as ‘class IIb medical device’ according to the Medical Devices Regulation (MDR) and have to meet strict safety standards to prevent harm to patients, caregivers, and third parties.

ECHM and EUBS make a Joint Position Statement on the use of pressure chambers marketed as ‘low-pressure hyperbaric chambers’ and claimed to be beneficial for a wide range of effects and wellness purposes. This document has now been translated into German, Spanish, Greek, Dutch, Czech and Magyar; more languages will be added soon.

You can download the document from the ECHM website and also on the EUBS Endorsed Docs and Guidelines page.
