IHE Rentals

Rent a machine from The Altitude Centre Ireland and you can experience the benefits of altitude training up to 6560m from the comfort of your own home.

Training in IHE enables you to pre-acclimatise before a departure to altitude as well as offering health benefits in weight loss, lower blood pressure and boosting the immune system.

IHE stands for Intermittent Hypoxic Exposure, a technique of breathing short bursts of alpine like air through a mask, alternated with normal air. IHE is the quickest was to adapt to low oxygen. The rhythmical and intermittent nature of IHT pulses the body with hypoxic air. The stimulus is great enough to trigger deep physiological adaptations but not long enough to bring on fatigue or the problems associated with high altitude sickness.

If renting a machine for pre-acclimatisation purposes, we recommend training is completed as close to your departure as possible.

The rental period for the machine is one month minimum. It is easy to set up, safe to use and comes with a complete training programme. The powerful Hypoxic air generator produces 115L/min of airflow with adjustable altitudes up to 12,000ft/3660m
