The application of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for 'back pain and complex spinal disorders' was pioneered by Malcolm R Hooper (Australia) in 1996. Lokomat (Robotic Gait Assisted Therapy), ICARE (Elliptical Trainer), MonoRail Gait Walking, Vibration Training. HyperMED installed the Australian first LOKOMAT (Adult and Pediatric Robotic Gaited Assisted Walking) in 2006. The specific combination effects of HBO and LOKOMAT for brain and spinal cord injury - a ‘world first’. In Australia, the combination effects of HBO/LOKOMAT are considered ‘novel and unique'.HyperMED BEYOND THERAPY is like a neuro-recovery boot camp; we make no apology for 'politely pushing the patient'  - the objective is to penetrate the deeper neurovascular structures, unlock dormant pathways and promote functional changes.

WORLD NEWS - Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Tel Aviv - The Sagol Centre For Hyperbaric Medicine & Research

  • Worlds largest Hyperbaric Medical Hospital treating more than 120-patients a day

  • HBO improves neurological and cognitive functions and improves the quality of life in post stroke and traumatic brain injury patients

  • HBO can induce neuroplasticity in brain regions with metabolic dysfunction demonstrated by metabolic/anatomical mismatch in brain imaging

  • Neuroplasticity can be induced by HBOT years after the acute insult

  • The most significant improvement is seen in patients with a high discrepancy between metabolic dysfunction to the anatomic damage (non-active brain regions without evidence of significant necrosis)

  • Clinical improvement correlates with activated brain regions

  • A rehabilitation cycle lasts 3 months and includes 60 HBO daily sessions (90-minutes) 5 days per week. Accordingly, HBO rehabilitation is short and intensive requiring motivated patients. The Unit is suitable for adult patients suffering from post concussion syndrome, stroke, or anoxic brain damage

HyperMED (aka Hyperbaric Medicine), OXYMED (Oxygen Medicine) is seeking professional partners and alliance to establish other satellite centres across Australia & overseas.

It is also our intention to establish an Integrative Hyperbaric Association incorporating both medical and allied health clinics. The integrative association will focus on safety, clinical education, public awareness, treatment protocols, philanthropic and include 'peak body' representation towards government regulation and funding. If you are a health care practitioner and interested in the association then please contact us.

Is your clinic interested in a monoplace or multiplace hyperbaric chamber installed under a Licence Agreement model? We provide site appraisal,  'turn-key' installation, training and certification to meet your clinic requirements and patient special needs.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has 2 separate components - 'increased pressure' and 'increased oxygen'. The combination of the therapy has significant effects on the human frame

The human frame is Oxygen dependent - without adequate Oxygen multisystem erosion occurs


HBO Up~Regulates the patients own target specific circulating Stem Cells {an 8-fold (800%) increase in circulating CD34+}; HBO enhances Mitochondrial function (energy source); HBO proliferates growth factors including Vascular Endothelial Growth Factors (VEGF) & Neural Growth Factors (BDNF & GDNF); HBO elevates anti-inflammatory cytokines including IL4, 10, 12, 13 and Interferon Gamma (INFγ is a positive 'feed back loop' responsive to HBO); HBO reduces Telomeres degeneration and more. Cytokine, Interleukins, Growth Factors

HBO Down~Regulates toxic intra and extra cellular inflammatory IL1, 6, 7, 8 and Tumour Necrosis Factor Alpha (TNFα); chronic opportunistic Anaerobic (MRSA, VRE) and co-infections - viral, bacterial, parasitic; Cell Sepsis and more  What is a Cytokine Storm?   Lyme Like Illness?

Tumour Necrosis Factor Alpha (TNFα) is a cytokine produced by white blood cells which acts as the master regulator of the human inflammatory response

Proinflammatory tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF) is a key mediator of neuropathic pain pathogenesis; TNF is elevated at sites of neuronal injury, in the spinal cord, and supraspinally during the initial development of pain. Chronic, neuropathic pain includes elevated levels of the cytokine tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF). The hippocampus, an area of the brain most notable for its role in learning and memory formation, plays a fundamental role in pain sensation. Animal studies demonstrate that infusion of a anti-TNFα adjacent to the hippocampus completely alleviated pain

Elevated pro-inflammatory markers Cytokines (IL1, IL6, IL7, IL8) and TNFα are linked with chronic and progressive neurodegenerative disease - often referred to as a Cytokine Storm leading to multisystem inflammatory cascade (autoimmune erosion). The body due to autoimmune dysfunction - attacks itself

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy when COMBINED with Etanercept and other TNF blocker therapies may enhance the efficacy of individual and combination effects of treatment for neurologic patients.

This novel route of HBO/peptide compound administration is a pioneering breakthrough that definitely offers hope for greatly improving the health of people with life-threatening and debilitating illnesses such as Alzheimer’s disease, chronic stroke, neuropathic pain, depression/psychological disorders, traumatic brain injury etc

HBO is the 'integrative bridge' between orthodox medicine and complimentary approaches. Oxygen is essential to quality of life and essential to drug delivery.  This multifactor internal healing response is 'unique' to Hyperbaric Oxygenation.
