The ERS (European Respiratory Society) Buyers’ Guide Editor selected (at no cost) the POWERbreathe KH-Series to feature on the front cover of the ERS Buyers’ Guide for 2011 / 2012.
The Buyers’ Guide provides respiratory clinicians with an up-to-date source of information about respiratory products and devices that are transforming the lives of patients with respiratory illness and disease.
The patented POWERbreathe KH-Series and other respiratory care products by POWERbreathe were featured in a full-page of evidence based, drug-free breathing rehabilitation and training products.
POWERbreathe was delighted to have the KH-Series selected for the front cover as the KH-Series represents a revolution in respiratory muscle training with its piezo-resistive pressure sensing technology for the precise measurement of respiratory pressure 500 times/second. The KH-Series’ triple-aperture rotary valve system makes up to 4000 precision movements every second.
POWERbreathe has been recognised in providing ‘Gold Standard’ K-Series devices for important research in a multi-nation COPD study, reporting,
“We conclude that the handheld device provides automatically processed and valid estimates of physical units of energy during loaded breathing tasks. This enables health care providers to quantify the load on inspiratory muscles during these tests in daily clinical practice.”
The printed version of the ERS Buyers’ Guide was distributed to 20,000 delegates who attended the ERS Annual Congress.
