Home Shop Shaker Classic
Excessive mucus in the lungs makes it hard to breathe. If the mucus isn’t cleared, the airways can swell and create more mucus, leading to lung damage. Oscillating Positive Expiratory Pressure devices such as the Shaker Classic break down mucus and catarrh, opening up the airways.
How to Shaker Classic clears mucus- There is a weighted ball inside the Shaker Classic. When you breathe into the Shaker Classic, the ball is raised and then falls under its own weight. This rise and fall action happens very quickly and feels like a vibration.
This vibration and the gentle resistance created by breathing against the ball has numerous benefits, Changes in air pressure mean the smaller airways are encouraged to open, increasing lung usage and efficiency. The mucus is thinned or dislodged by the vibration and increased airflow helps this mucus to move to the large airways where gentle coughing can expel it.
Convenient mucus clearance- The Shaker Classic can be used anywhere, offering simple and convenient relief from excessive mucus and its associated problems.
Suitable for many respiratory conditions- The Shaker Classic can be used for chronic conditions such as COPD, asthma, emphysema and acute problems like chesty coughs, flu and bronchitis. By clearing the airways the chances of developing lung infections and damaging the lungs are reduced. Lung function is also improved, reducing breathlessness and fatigue.
How To Use
It is best if you use the Shaker either sitting down or lying down, as you may become dizzy while using the device. If you do become dizzy, stop performing the exercise and breathe calmly through your nose.
The ability to rotate the mouthpiece enables you to use the Shaker device while reclining. Physiotherapists refer to this as postural drainage. Additionally when lying down, make sure your head is slightly elevated.
You may need to adapt the exercise to achieve the greatest and most effective vibration in your rib cage. This can be done by experimenting with the incline of the device and the intensity of the expired airflow.
