Benefits For Uniformed Services

POWERbreathe Inspiratory Muscle Training (IMT) can help with breathing issues in the workplace. These may include the challenges placed on the breathing muscles by breathing apparatus, such as that used by people in the Fire Service or in certain other occupations where breathing apparatus may be required. Furthermore, POWERbreathe IMT can reduce the breathing effort required when wearing protective clothing such as that used by the Police Force.

Benefits for Uniformed Services

  • Improved breathing conditions in people with physically demanding occupational situations where breathing demand is raised or where breathing apparatus is used, such as the Armed Forces, Police Force and Fire Service
  • Improved inspiratory muscle strength by 31.2%
  • Improved inspiratory muscle endurance by 27.8%
  • Reduced breathlessness
  • Reduced heart rate
  • Reduced the rate of air use from the breathing cylinder used by firefighters (increasing wear time by around 1.5 min from a 15 min cylinder)
  • Increased time to exhaustion during a standard laboratory treadmill test
