POWERbreathe Inspiratory Muscle Training (IMT) is clinically proven to be beneficial for people with asthma. It is ideal, therefore, as a complementary asthma treatment without drugs, because it is drug-free and therefore has no drug interactions. 

Asthma Treatment Without Drugs – POWERbreathe Medic IMT 

After 20 months of rigorous assessment, the POWERbreathe Medic IMT device shows that it offers people with asthma a drug-free and clinically-proven method to reduce symptoms and put them in control of their asthma.

POWERbreathe IMT In Asthma Management

Although the role of IMT in the management of asthma is less widely studied than in COPD, data exists from five randomised controlled trials that are unanimously supportive of IMT in the management of asthma.

POWERbreathe Medic IMT As An Asthma Treatment Option

Patients experience a reduction in dyspnoea, as well as improvements in quality of life, after just 3 weeks of POWERbreathe inspiratory muscle training. Dyspnoea is the medical term for breathlessness or shortness of breath. However, most striking, is the observation that longer-term IMT (6 months) reduces absence from school/work (by ~95%), use of healthcare resources (by ~75%), and consumption of medication (by ~79%).

Is POWERbreathe Good For Asthma?

Well, the research above shows that it is good for relieving the symptoms of asthma, by improving lung function and Breathing Effort in Asthma.

Research Supporting Findings

These are the five randomised controlled clinical trials in support of POWERbreathe IMT:

  1. Inspiratory muscle training improves lung function and reduces exertional dyspnoea in mild/moderate asthmatics – McConnell, A. K., M. P. Caine, et al. (1998). Clinical Science 95(2): 4P.
  2. Inspiratory muscle training in patients with bronchial asthma 
  3. Specific inspiratory muscle training in patients with mild asthma with high consumption of inhaled beta(2)-agonists
  4. The relationship among inspiratory muscle strength, the perception of dyspnea and inhaled beta2-agonist use in patients with asthma
  5. Influence of gender and inspiratory muscle training on the perception of dyspnea in patients with asthma
