POWERbreathe popped in to meet up with new members of the physiotherapy team at The London Clinic (23rd July). The London Clinic is one of the UK’s largest private hospitals, dedicated to providing the best, personalised healthcare with a breadth of surgical and medical expertise.
We presented POWERbreathe Inspiratory Muscle Training to 10 new members of the team and to their clinical specialist, respiratory physiotherapist, Anne Pitman.
The physiotherapy team already use the POWERbreathe K5 with Breathe-Link Live Feedback Software to test and monitor breathing parameters in patients, and then patients use their own POWERbreathe Plus device for breathing training at home.
We provided training to the new physiotherapists on how to utilise the analysis from the POWERbreathe K5 Breathe-Link Software results for the initial set-up of each patient's own POWERbreathe Plus device. The physios took a turn using the POWERbreathe K5 to help them understand how Inspiratory Muscle Training worked, what it felt like, how to perform the training properly, what breathing parameters it registered, and how this data can help in prescribing a breathing training program that’s bespoke for each patient.
We'd like to thank the team at The London Clinic for their time and kind hospitality.
