POWERbreathe K5 Breathe-Link Software for MAC – now available and FREE to download

The POWERbreathe K5’s smart breathing training technology was launched in 2011 to a huge round of applause for its innovative Breathe-Link PC software. But you let us know that you needed it to be MAC compatible too. We listened and although it took a while to develop we got there (we like things to be just perfect!).

So we’re now delighted to announce to all you MAC users that you too will be able to take advantage of the K5’s smart features.


If you already have a K5 and want to be able to use it on your MAC:

  • Simply visit the Breathe-Link Updates page, log in and then follow the link to download ‘Mac OS’. It’s FREE!

If you haven’t yet purchased your K5 because it was for PC only:

  • Every K5 comes complete with a Breathe-Link CD for PC and instructions for downloading MAC software: simply visit the Breathe-Link Updates page, log in and then follow the link to download ‘Mac OS’. It’s FREE!

The POWERbreathe K5 with Breathe-Link software maximises your breathing performance by enabling you to monitor and analyse your training and test results which you can then view and assess on screen, in pdf and in print. The K5 Breathe-Link software offers:

  • Real-time breathing measurement and analysis
  • Import and export of .bre files (breathing file extension) to allow data sharing amongst Breathe-Link users
  • Real-time, live test feedback graphical display with enhanced visual feedback
  • Detailed, simultaneous plotting and analysis of data
  • Detailed high resolution records of each session, generated into pdf format for printing
  • Creation of your own personalised breathing training sessions

    • Hello Mehrnoosh and thank you for your enquiry. All K-Series and KH-Series devices utilise a valve head which is exposed to saliva, so yes you’re correct this is for personal use only. However, additional valve heads (in different colours for identification) may be used on one device only, if a family wishes to use it for instance. For clinical use, clinicians are using the K5, as well as, the KH1, KH2 and KHP devices (designed specifically for healthcare professionals and their patients) with a TrySafe, single-use, disposable filter. If you would like some advice regarding which product may suit you best, please feel free to email [email protected] with your requirements so they’re able to establish which would be the best solution for you. Best wishes to you.

    • Hello Ankit and thank you for your enquiry. We’re in the process of developing a new website and we are in transition at the moment, so apologies for the inconvenience this is causing.
