How It Works

How It Works

Breathe IN through the device against the scientifically calibrated resistance for 30 breaths, twice a day, increasing the resistance as your breathing gets stronger.

A study examined the influence of inspiratory muscle training upon respiratory function and repetitive propulsive sprint performance in wheelchair basketball players. Reported experiences of using POWERbreathe suggested ‘less breathlessness’ and ‘less tightness in the chest during the training.‘ (E Foden, V L Goosey-Tolfrey 2008)

Breathe stronger

Known as “dumbbells for your diaphragm” POWERbreathe exercises your inspiratory muscles (mainly diaphragm and intercostals) by making them work harder as you breathe in against the resistance, increasing their strength and stamina.

Get fitter

By making breathing feel easier, your heart rate lowers, lactic acid levels reduce, exercise becomes more comfortable and endurance is improved. In other words you can exercise ‘harder’ with less effort which improves your fitness!

Train with less effort

Increase the resistance to your breathing and you train harder. Train harder and you increase breathing muscle strength, improve breathing stamina and reduce fatigue. You can then train for longer with less perceived effort.

Perform better

Inspiratory muscles play a vital role in the efficiency of breathing during exercise. Train them to increase resistance to fatigue and improve efficiency: the lungs will require less oxygen, increasing maximum power output to working muscles.

There's a POWERbreathe for everyone.

We have a POWERbreathe device to suit all budgets and breathing training requirements.
