Breathing Trainers

The POWERbreathe range of drug-free breathing trainers include both Inspiratory Muscle Training (IMT) and Expiratory Muscle Training (EMT) devices (coming soon).

K-Series IMT

These devices feature an electronically controlled ‘tapered flow resistance’ that uses a computer controlled rotary valve to create the resistance to your in-breath. Because of this, resistance is not fixed at the same level throughout your breath (unlike a pressure threshold device), because the device automatically reduces the resistance as you progress through your breath, matching the load to your declining muscle strength.

The tapered flow enables you to perform a longer inspiration and use a wider range of breathing muscles so you achieve higher flow and higher tidal volumes for better results.

Classic and Plus IMT

These devices create a resistance to your in-breath using a precisely calibrated, spring loaded ‘pressure threshold’ valve. The training is similar to weightlifting.

The resistance to breathing in, (weight you are lifting), is created by the adjustable spring loaded valve. Only when you generate enough inspiratory power will the valve open at the ‘pressure threshold’ you set. It’s this that presents a challenge to your breathing muscles. You can adjust the breathing load to make the resistance lighter or heavier and training easier or harder.

Medical IMT

The POWERbreathe Medic offers an evidence-based, drug-free treatment for patients with medical conditions where dyspnoea (breathlessness) is present.

The POWERbreathe Medic Plus offers the lowest entry level load of any threshold IMT device currently available, enabling patients who are in ICU or who have severe breathing difficulties, to begin training their breathing muscles which otherwise would not be trained.

The KH-Series of electronic IMT devices are designed specifically for use only by Medical Professionals and their patients.
