Bries is your personal breathing companion, with innovative technology and unobtrusive design. Bries main components consist of a fan, zeolite, and oxygen permeable material. These components play important part in creating Bries concept as a small and light oxygen concentrator. It is safe to carry for travelling – even in aircrafts. Bries hides from unnecessary attention, thus users can use it daily with confidence. The interface is simple and intuitive, minimized to what is necessary for the product. It sends information through low energy Bluetooth (BLE) to users’ phone when malfunction happens, thus allowing users to respond and be able to breathe. When battery runs out or parts stop working, it has emergency lever connected to speedometer, where users can power Bries manually as they find the solution or wait for help. Bries’s battery is wirelessly charged with a plug, so users don’t need to worry about cables.
