POWERbreathe Breathing Training – How It Works

The POWERbreathe breathing trainer strengthens your breathing muscles using resistance training. Our breathing device is often referred to as a dumbbell for your diaphragm. Use the breathing trainer for 30 breaths twice a day and see the benefits within 4-6 weeks.

The Inspiratory Muscle Training (IMT) device is scientifically proven to reduce breathing fatigue and increase breathing stamina in a wide range of people. From patients with respiratory illness to elite athletes – anyone can benefit from our breathing exercise device.

Shaker Deluxe Review

“Bought for my elderly Mum, who has had a right mid-lobectomy and resultant COPD. It has helped her to practice deep breathing and I’m sure it will reduce the amount of chest infections she has. I am a nurse and decided to buy this product as it has helped one of my clients.”

Used by Experts

POWERbreathe IMT is being used by leaders in their field

The POWERbreathe Medic Plus in white.

IMT, using the POWERbreathe Medic Plus breathing training device, is well‐tolerated and led to improved inspiratory muscle strength in primary ciliary dyskinesia patients, in a pilot study into 'The effect of inspiratory muscle training in PCD and CF patients'.

POWERbreathe KHP2


IMT is a well-tolerated conservative treatment option for people with unilateral diaphragm dysfunction (UDD) that yields meaningful benefits in activity-related dyspnea and exercise tolerance, in this randomised trial into the 'Effects of IMT on exertional breathlessness in patients with UDD'.

POWERbreathe Medic

IMT in Occupational COPD
