Effects of IMT on Breathing Pattern in Patients With COPD

The purpose of this clinical trial, sponsored by Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium, is based on how improvement in inspiratory muscle function might result in beneficial changes in breathing pattern during whole body exercise. The hypothesis is the effect of inspiratory muscle training as an adjunct to a pulmonary rehabilitation program improves the breathing pattern during an incremental cycle exercise.

  1. Hi there, I’m interested in this product for my mother who has COPD and because I struggle with breathing during exercise (even though I have been running regularly for over twenty years). I’m interested in the results of the COPD study but the link to the site above has had no results posted. Please could you advise why the results aren’t available?

    • Hello Rebecca and thank you for your comment. I’m afraid I find that alot also, that results aren’t updated online for clinical trials. I do have however a leaflet that you can download (as it’s a pdf) showing results from studies into the use of IMT in patients with COPD, which formed part of the assessment for the POWERbreathe Medic by the NHS. As a result of their assessment, the POWERbreathe Medic was made available for prescription in the UK. https://www.powerbreathe.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/MedicalInfo_print.pdf I hope that helps Rebecca. If you do have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us
