Info: Device for PEP Therapy (Available in Canada Only)
Everyday functions such as breathing should not have to be a struggle. However, this is the reality for some individuals, such as those affected by COPD, bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma, emphysema, or other chronic respiratory ailments. Developed by Medical Acoustics, the Lung Flute may be able to help. FDA-approved for Positive Expiratory Pressure (PEP) therapy, the Lung Flute uses low frequency acoustic waves to stimulate your body's natural ability to break up the mucus that resides deep within the lungs making it easier to cough up.
Lung Flute: Fast. Safe. Reliable. Effective. Convenient.
Low Frequency Acoustic Waves Help Patients’ Natural Mucus Clearing System
All you have to do is blow into the flute-shaped device about 10 times (for about 5 to 10 minutes) and let the vibrations from the reed do the rest; it's recommended that it be used twice daily. The Lung Flute is easy to use, does not require any adjustments, and is intended to stimulate the body's secretion clearing system in individuals who have trouble doing that naturally. (It is not designed to increase your lung capacity, however; please see the Frolov device for that, which may help prevent different diseases and increase your body's adaptation abilities.)
A device used to help loosen, mobilize, and eliminate secretions from your airways, consisting of a mouthpiece and a reed inside a horn.
