SECHRIST HISTORY - SECHRIST INDUSTRIES HYPERBARIC CHAMBERS IN OVER 172 COUNTRIES
Sechrist Industries was founded in 1973, by Ron Sechrist, a mechanical engineer with a passion for the research and development of new life-saving medical technologies. Sechrist Industries started by designing and selling its first model 2500 hyperbaric oxygen chamber to Long Beach Naval research academy. Since the huge success of that first hyperbaric oxygen chamber, Sechrist Industries has grown into a world-wide hyperbaric chamber manufacturer and supplier. Now in over 172 countries, with hyperbaric chambers in thousands of hospitals and clinics around the world; Sechrist continues to lead the hyperbaric therapy market.
Since its inception, Sechrist Industries has continued to invest and support the hyperbaric oxygen therapy community. Sechrist Industries has spent millions on research, development, and public awareness over its 50 years of successful hyperbaric campaigns. Sechrist grew from a single idea, and a single product, to a huge worldwide corporation with multiple product groups including respiratory, oxygen mixers, patient gurneys, and countless other products and devices. The culmination of this was the Sechrist 4100H Monoplace Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber, the largest diameter chamber on the marketplace, both then, and today.
In 2017, Sechrist launched two groundbreaking technologies to the world of Hyperbaric Medicine. Sechrist has designed and developed a dual-use Hyperbaric Oxygen & ICU Chamber for the Veterinary marketplace. Shortly after that, Sechrist introduced the new E-Gurney™ Electric Wheeled Stretcher. The E-Gurney will allow caregivers to raise, lower, brake the stretcher with the touch of an electronic foot pedal. As the medical device market continues to evolve, Sechrist plans to continue to innovate and evolve along with it as market leaders.
