Our Story

Dolby Vivisol

Already on a remarkable journey since its foundation, VIVISOL decided to push the boundaries even further. In 2010 Dolby Medical became the newest addition to the VIVISOL family and Dolby Vivisol was born. 


Dolby Vivisol is a unique UK provider of Home Healthcare services specialising in respiratory care.  We offer a range of services including home oxygen therapy; of which we currently hold three of the NHS regional contracts for providing this service to around 20,000 patients.

Dolby Vivisol also offers home NIV services, diagnosis and treatment of sleep disordered breathing, aerosol and nebulizer therapy.


Dolby Vivisol has many years' experience throughout the UK and Europe, supporting research and innovation to provide benefits to our patients, from the flexibility built in to our systems to the adoption of new technology, we deliver a high quality of care.




SOL was founded in 1927 by a small group of people in Monza, Italy including the Annoni and Fumagalli families.  They originally produced and supplied oxygen and acetylene to shipyards in Leghorn and Ancona for cutting and welding purposes.


Whilst remaining under the management of the Annoni and Fumagalli families the SOL group has greatly expanded with a professional history of over 80 years that led to the creation of VIVISOL.


Starting Group

The SOL Group is also a European leader in the design, construction, implementation and management of laboratory cryogenic cell factories and banks, the invention of monoclonal antibodies targeted therapies as well as in the production of technical gases used in medical procedures.  



VIVISOL was founded in 1986 as an arm of the SOL group and is fully dedicated to Home Respiratory Care.
