Info: 1 Frolov Respiration Training Device
This item is currently unavailable.
Healthy breathing affects the functionality of every organ in the body. Whether you are hard at work, engaging in sports activities, or simply relaxing, you need to breathe right.
Based on contemporary scientific research, the Frolov device is a unique resistance-based tool and training method that can significantly enhance breathing technique and help improve overall well-being.
Russian scientist Vladimir Frolov developed this Respiration Training Device for home use, enabling anyone to learn and apply proper breathing techniques and increase their lung capacity.
This novel, state-of-the-art respiration training apparatus actually has two main purposes:
First, it can help otherwise healthy people master the endogenous breathing regulation techniques and exercises much faster and easier than mere descriptions of their objectives can; actually creating resistance for you while inhaling and exhaling can help train your respiratory muscles so you use your diaphragm more and improve your habitual shallow chest breathing.
Second, it can serve as an independent medical device to help increase your body's adaptation abilities to support a variety of respiratory and/or cardiovascular conditions, including: atherosclerosis, bronchial asthma, chronic bronchitis, myocardial ischemia, pulmonary emphysema, and many others.

Note from Nathan Zassman: The Frolov Device is an unusual but impressive health product. Designed by a Russian scientist and used by Russian cosmonauts, when used regularly, this device helps the body to produce oxygen (endogenous oxygen) from antioxidants in the body. Customers who have purchased this product have told me that this may be the most important of all our health products, as it improves oxygen utilization in the body.
Naming Note: Originally known as Frolov's Lungs Training Device, this portable tool from Dinamika has also been sold in some markets under the BreathSlim brand name.
Shipping Note: This product ships from our store in Winnipeg, Canadians pay no additional import fees or duties. (Some online outlets ship product from Estonia, Russia, and Ireland.)
What's in the Box:
The full Frolov kit contains: Mouthpiece, respiratory tube, container for essential oils, cover, cup, internal container, graduated jar, technical certificate, directions for use (guidelines). You can also download the Frolov Manual here [PDF ~0.5 MB].
Please note, the latest box is slightly different than the original one shown in the main product photo and the video and manual/brochure; it no longer contains a DVD.
Inhalation and exhalation is normally to be done solely by the mouth, through some water with resistance. First add from 10 to 20 ml of pure warm water to the container cup, depending on your age and condition (see Table 1 of the Frolov Manual for details); there is also a compartment for essential oils, if desired; and fully assemble the unit (there is more on that in the video and transcript below). Wrap your lips around the mouthpiece of the breathing tube, and inhale smoothly, slowly, and gently through your mouth for three to five seconds. After inhaling, take a pause in the breathing process, again, for about three to five seconds. Then exhale gently through your mouth into that same breathing tube for two to three seconds. The length of your entire first training session should be a series of those cycles lasting from 5 to 10 minutes. For an aroma inhalation session, after the initial training, the length of an entire session would be from eight to ten minutes.
Frolov's Respiratory Training Device (Transcript for Video Above)
Discoveries made by modern scientists who study the experience of our predecessors are proving an important role of breathing for keeping human health. Health improving breathing adds to improvement of health condition, increases protective function of the organism and intensifies processes of energy metabolism in cells.
Gradually increasing the length of training session with the help of the training device, you will soon feel that your mood is improving, your sleep is back to normal, mental and physical activity as well as resistance to stress and infectious diseases are intensified.
Setting of the Training Device: The Training Device is a device for training respiratory muscular system and establishing positive exhalation pressure. Before starting to train, it is necessary to study the manual.
How to prepare the device for training? Before the first application and after each training using the inhalation training device, it is necessary to disassemble the device, wash all parts with warm water and washing out liquid. Wash in the running water and dry.
Determine the amount of water according to the table given in the manual. Measure the necessary volume of water. Using the measuring glass, pour water in the cup or the training device. Stick the lid to the inner container tightly. Put the inner container inside the cup. Press the lid so that it closes the cup tightly. Stick the respiratory tube to that lid socket. Insert the mouthpiece into the spare end of the respiratory tube.
Main principles of the respiratory training: What is the most important point in respiratory training? During respiratory training, it is necessary to breathe with the help of the diaphragm. The diaphragm is the main respiratory muscle which separates thorax and abdomen. When inhaling, the diaphragm contracts and moves down. When exhaling, the diaphragm relaxes and slowly moves up.
In what position is it necessary to train? Choose the most comfortable position. Sit at the table, in the armchair, or recline.
How to better carryout respiratory training? Take the device so that the cup of the training apparatus is in the vertical position. Put the mouthpiece into your mouth and press it tightly with your lips. Inhale and exhale through your mouth and into the tube. In order to prevent air coming through your nose, you can close the nose wings with two fingers of the free hand.
Inhale intensely within two to three seconds. The stomach is relaxed and moved forward. Exhale gently, slowly and smoothly. When the exhale is over, the stomach is slightly drawn in.
Is it possible to inhale through the nose? Children and people with weak health at the beginning of the training course can inhale through the nose. It is not recommended to inhale through the nose during the basic training course.
What characteristic features should be considered when exhaling? Exhale follows inhale. Exhale is longer than inhale. Length of inhaling is increasing gradually. You can get the information about the length of the training session in the manual.
Servicing and storage conditions: After the training session, disassemble the Training Device and wash all parts with warm water and washing up liquid. Keep the device in a plastic bag or carton box.
A good example is a three-minute training session with a 10-second inhaling period.
Contraindications: not suitable for people less than 6 years old; or for those with severe forms of any diseases; or for those with respiratory failure higher than II degree; or with heart failure; or pulmonary hemorrhage and hemoptysis; or implanted artificial pacemakers.
