O2 FRESH oxygen tubing covers recognized by the National Science Foundation

The Live O2 FRESH team was honored participate in the highly competitive National Science Foundation Innovation Corporation (NSF I-Corp) in 2020. Participation in the NSF program was instrumental in bringing our oxygen tubing protector for oxygen therapy to market.

Cannula holder funded by the Department of Defense

Fun fact: products designed with a 3D printer, like the original O2 FRESH nasal cannula cover prototype, aren't always manufacturable. That's because a 3D printer can produce shapes a manufacturing mold can't.

Live O2 FRESH was proud (and darn relieved) to receive a grant from the Department of Defense, administered by The Ohio State University, for the university to redesign our prototype cannula holder for manufacturing. A lot of craftmanship and deep thought went into the development and manufacture of the cannula cover.

 

Take a look, we're proud of our work!

Our inspiration: We give thanks!

 

Jack Hartfiel, with his wife Sara, started a construction company to pay our Founder's medical bills when she became ill as a child. Jack worked on roofs during the day and a steel mill at night to make money to pay the bills and support their family of four daughters.

At its peak, the company they created provided jobs for 13 people - a true American success story.
