Mike Allen

Founder and Chief Technical Officer

During his long career, Mike acquired extensive knowledge and skills in the areas of hyperbaric and diving medicine and physiology.  As a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) he served for 19 years on the committee responsible for the design and construction of diving and hyperbaric medical chamber systems (ASME-PVHO). Mike was the lead engineer responsible for the development of four clinical monoplace chamber designs for critical-care and non-critical applications.  He was also a pioneer in the research that brought to light the effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for sports injuries and other uncompromised trauma (i.e., “normal wounds” such as cosmetic surgery). Finally, MWA has provided input critical to the research and development of MBO2, particularly for MBOS’s breathing gas delivery systems and equipment.
