Home Shop POWERbreathe Plus – Light Resistance
This device is ideal for those who are not very active or have a breathing issue and would like to start breathing training. It offers a ‘light resistance’ to breathing in, created by the adjustable spring loaded valve.
The range between each training level is quite small which means that as your breathing muscles become stronger and you move up one of the training levels by increasing the resistance, this small increase in cmH2O makes it more manageable.
This ‘load’ training is similar to weightlifting, and in the instance of this ‘light resistance’ device, provides a level of load setting (weight lifted) in increments of 8cmH2O, from 17cmH2O to 98cmH2O.
POWERbreathe Plus is designed to be simple and easy to use. With 11 easily adjustable levels over time you will be able to strengthen your inspiratory breathing muscles. Helping you to increase your stamina and overall wellness.
The POWERbreathe Plus is the second generation of mechanical breathing trainers, and features the following design improvements:
Our scientifically proven training regime of 30 breaths, twice a day typically takes only a few minutes and, used properly, you should start to see the benefits within just a few weeks.
Inspiratory muscle training is proven by sports scientists and medical professionals to exercise and strengthen the muscles used to breathe in.
Adjustable Load Selection Range
Please note: Heavy resistance is only for those who have reached maximum loading on a medium resistance model. If you start with a heavy resistance model, you will not experience the benefits of POWERbreathe Plus training and may struggle to acheive higher levels due to the faster progression between loads.
Precise load settings may vary due to: (1) the analogue nature of the calibrated spring tensioner and the precision with which the load is selected; (2) a small effect of inspiratory flow rate upon spring compression such that high inspiratory flow rates lead to greater spring compression, and a small increase in load.
This effect is common to all spring loaded devices, and its size is magnified by increasing spring range (it is larger in a spring with a maximum range of 90cmH2O compared with one with half this range), it is also greater at lower absolute load settings.
Keeping a record of the training level reached and the number of breaths successfully completed per session will help you analyse your progress.

I’ve had asthma my entire life and been a competitive cyclist most of my adult life. I started using a powerbreathe green about 6 weeks ago on level 2 in hopes of getting away from using an inhaler so often. I probably increase the setting about once a week. I’ve noticed a huge improvement in 6 weeks with about 90% compliance to the program. I occasionally try easier and harder settings to see if there is a difference in exertion and its noticeably easier. I haven’t had to refill my inhaler Rx so on top of improved quality of life I’m saving money on co-pays. In a few more weeks I’ll graduate to a Blue/ medium PB. It’s improved my breathing so much that I have had to relearn pacing on climbs because the perceived exertion is lower at a given intensity.

I am a very heavy smoker and COPD patient. I started training on the POWERbreathe Plus LR on level 0 but now, one year later, I’ve reached level 9. I’ve noticed the difference during exercise. Even the pulmonary nurse finds a noticeable difference. It’s an amazing and simple thing. It’s worth the money and gives me a better quality of life despite my bad habit. I use it only in the morning, so once a day for a few minutes only.
