Hyperbaric Wing

Our state-of-the-art hyperbaric suites combine innovative design and advanced technologies with first-class comfort.

Our suites meet or exceed all regulatory requirements for hyperbaric treatment, with safety features that are some of the most advanced in the industry.

Our tablets are unique to the Aviv Medical Program and engage clients in state-of-the-art cognitive training exercises while immersed in the hyperbaric environment. Doing so stimulates the regions of the brain that will most benefit from oxygen therapy. Clients can also enjoy entertainment and educational programming on these tablets while in the suites. Safety is maximized through our specialized hyperbaric protocol and an in-suite clinical team member during every hyperbaric “dive.”

Neurocognitive Wing

Cognitive performance is one of the pillars of the Aviv Medical Program. Each client experiences a cognitive training program unlike any other. After a detailed evaluation, we implement the latest research-validated tools to enhance your cognitive capacities. These include: memory, information processing speed, attention, executive function and others.

Dual task training has been clinically shown to enhance cognition, reduce age-related cognitive decline, and improve physical function and quality of life in older adults. The Aviv Medical Program employs multimodal training regularly to maximize potential benefits. In addition to completing specialized cognitive exercises during hyperbaric therapy sessions, our cutting-edge cognitive training gym encourages clients to complete brain exercises while performing physical activity.

Physiological Wing

Using the results of musculoskeletal, neurological, physiological, and functional evaluations, each Aviv client is prescribed a combination of physiotherapy, physical training, and nutritional coaching. This combination helps build the foundation for success in the Aviv Medical Program. 

Clients also receive additional workout time at state-of-the-art smart gyms that offer both physical training and performance diagnostics. Each client also receives a personalized nutrition plan based on comprehensive diet intake, habits and preferences, health conditions, and their personal goals. 

The Experience of an Aviv Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber

Clients enjoy comprehensive, personalized hyperbaric oxygen therapy at our Florida facility. Our customized, data-based programs are designed to enhance your physical and cognitive performance in a safe, comfortable, and luxurious environment.

Aviv’s hyperbaric oxygen therapy protocol is facilitated in custom-built pressurized multiplace suites to deliver 100% pure, breathable oxygen. This elevates oxygen in the body 10-15 times above normal levels. Oxygen levels are fluctuated throughout the session to accelerate the body’s healing and support optimal health. 

The HBOT suites are temperature-controlled and spacious to allow patients to stand, stretch, and move around. They’ve been compared to being in a roomy first-class airline cabin. Undergoing a “dive” may cause patients to experience some mild pressure in the ears, similar to taking off and landing in an airplane. Specialized tablets are available to assist in brain exercises and allow for online activities. Our suites also provide a significant health and safety advantage by allowing clinicians to monitor patients during treatment.

What Makes Aviv’s Hyperbaric Chamber Work Better

Aviv Clinics advanced treatment protocols bring evidence-based innovation to HBOT in Florida. You can seek healing and comfort with our state-of-the-art treatment procedures that boast advantages such as:

A Unique First-Class Facility

Our Florida clinic’s hyperbaric oxygen therapy suites feature modern, comfortable seating in a clean, relaxing environment. A custom-fitted oxygen mask allows you to breathe easily while relaxing, meditating, or using our tablets to exercise your brain.

Multiplace Oxygen Chambers

Instead of monoplace (single-person) chambers that are often limited or restrictive, Aviv Clinics uses multiplace HBOT chambers that can accommodate multiple clients at once. Our multiplace chambers are spacious, with individual, upright seating and attentive trained staff in the chamber during treatment.

A Friendly, Professional Team

The Aviv Clinics team is comprised of certified healthcare professionals trained to safely and efficiently carry out our HBOT procedures. Aviv Clinics has a team of compassionate physicians, neuroscientists, nurses, nutrition coaches, physical therapists, and other medical professionals to offer clients the best care possible.

Cutting-edge HBOT Protocol

Not all hyperbaric oxygen treatments and programs are the same. Aviv Clinics’ specific HBOT protocol varies the oxygen levels throughout the sessions to facilitate the body’s own self-regenerative mechanisms. These fluctuations are scientifically proven to deliver lasting health benefits to our clients.
