Inogen is a proud manufacturer of oxygen therapy equipment. Inogen’s mission to ultimately improve one’s quality of life through the use of supplemental oxygen started in 2001 when Mae, an iconic and beloved grandmother, was prescribed with oxygen therapy.

When Mae was diagnosed with COPD, her options for oxygen therapy were quite lackluster. Her longing for an improved quality of life caught the attention of Inogen. With dedication and conviction in hand, Inogen would then go on to find an oxygen therapy solution for her and all the millions of oxygen users like her. Without Mae, there would be no Inogen. Mae continues to be an inspiration for everyone suffering from respiratory issues. She inspired and motivated Inogen to be the company that they sought out to be – and that is to deliver only the finest solutions for oxygen therapy users.

The trio of Ali, Brenton, and Byron founded Inogen to help find a solution for Mae and the millions of others that suffer from the same problems. In 2001, they were students at the University of California Santa Barbara, where they received first place honors at a business plan competition that was sponsored by the prestigious Technology Management Program. Three years later, they presented Mae with their first model – the Inogen One – in October of 2004. The results were nothing short of a miracle with Mae praising Inogen by saying that it was, “Better than anything I could have hoped for.”
