A Respiratory Muscle Training (RMT) Device

The Breather is the first drug-free, evidence-based inspiratory/expiratory respiratory muscle training device used by Dysphagia, COPD, CHF, and neuromuscular disease patients, as well as children 8+ and adults interested in healthy aging. It focuses on respiratory muscle weakness (RMW)which is an often overlooked condition.

The Breather strengthens both inspiration and expiration by providing resistance similar to weight training at a gym. Training intensities can be adjusted independently for inhale and exhale. Focusing on diaphragmatic breathing is a key to improvement in RMW.

This is a single-patient device that can be used in most medical settings including home health as well as by individuals not working with a clinician. No prescription is necessary. Order today for your patients or even for yourself.
