IHE Systems

Rent a machine from The Altitude Centre and you can experience the benefits of altitude training up to 6400m from the comfort of your own home.




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 way to adapt to low oxygen. The rhythmical and intermittent nature of IHE 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.

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.

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 all the information you need to progress your training during your rental. The powerful Hypoxic air generator with adjustable altitudes up to 21,000ft/6400m with special high altitude adaptor fitted.
