In randomised, controlled trials on mild to moderate patients with asthma, POWERbreathe inspiratory muscle training (IMT) increased inspiratory muscle strength by an average of 11% in just 3 weeks1. Inspiratory muscle training has been shown to relieve the symptoms of asthma by improving lung function, resulting in a reduction of medication by patients and a fall in hospitalisations2. Asthma patients experience a reduction in difficult, laboured breathing such as shortness of breath, after as little as 3 weeks’ POWERbreathe inspiratory muscle training (IMT)1, as well as improvements in quality of life. And in laboratory studies and randomised controlled trials, inspiratory muscle training was shown to generate:
- A reduction in the consumption of asthma medication of up to 79%2
- A reduction of ß2-agonists consumption by up to 79%2
- An improvement in asthma symptoms by up to 75% in 3 weeks1
9% of people with asthma use complementary therapies for their asthma3 POWERbreathe inspiratory muscle training is a clinically-proven method of reducing your asthma symptoms.
