HyperMED (Malcolm R. Hooper) pioneered the ‘off-label’ applications of Hyperbaric Oxygenation in Australia, 1996.


  • HyperMED installed the Australian first LOKOMAT (Adult and Pediatric Robotic Gait Assisted Walking) in 2006. The combination effects of HBO and LOKOMAT for brain and spinal cord injury – a ‘world first’.

  • In Australia, the combination effects of HBO/LOKOMAT are viewed as ‘novel and unique.’

  • Between 2008-2013 HyperMED (Hooper) presented multiple funding submissions under Medicare, TAC/Worksafe and AHPRA (Australian Practitioner Regulatory Authority).

  • Today across the USA, in excess of 1200 medical facilities provide similar HBO applications for chronic neurologic and other complex illness disorders. There are in excess of 500-LOKOMATS worldwide and a growing market for personal exoskeletons assisting patient mobility and functionality.

  • HyperMED pioneering efforts contributed to LOKOMAT funding in South Australia (2013). The Women and Children's Hospital (SA) is fund raising $4M to establish Australia’s leading robotic (LOKOMAT) rehabilitation research clinic. The Royal Melbourne Hospital (2014) is also fund raising for a LOKOMAT.

  • Hyperbaric Oxygenation (HBO @ 1.8-2.0 ATA using 100% O2) is with minimal risk and effective. HBO accelerates immune responses. HBO is non-invasive. HBO increases Oxygen tension into Hypoxic tissue inhibiting opportunistic infections and cellular mutations. HBO Up~Regulates the patients own target specific Stem Cells {an 8-fold (800%) increase in circulating CD34+}; HBO enhances Mitochondrial function, HBO proliferates Vascular Endothelial Growth Factors (VEGF) & Neural Growth Factors (BDNF & GDNF), HBO reduces Telomeres degeneration and more ...

  • HBO Down~Regulates toxic intra and extra cellular inflammatory Cytokines (IL1, 2, 6, 7, 8), Tumour Necrosis Factor Alpha (TNFα), chronic opportunistic Anaerobic (MRSA, VRE) and co-infections (Viral, Bacterial, Parasitic), Cell Sepsis and more ...

  • HBO is the 'integrative bridge' between orthodox medicine and complimentary approaches. Oxygen is essential to quality of life and essential to drug delivery. This multifactor internal healing response is 'unique' to Hyperbaric Oxygenation.
