This gravity-dependent OPEP (oscillatory positive expiratory pressure) device is easy to use for mobilising pulmonary secretions such as mucus and catarrh. A 2018 study found “the gravity-dependent devices were the ones to display close mechanical performances and produce optimal operational parameters at the simulated exhalation settings.”

Like the other Shaker products, inside the casing of the shaker is a weighted ball. By breathing into the Shaker Medic Plus, the ball is raised but then falls under its own weight. This rise and fall action happens extremely quickly and to the user, feels like a vibration. This vibration, combined with the gentle resistance created by breathing against the ball causes a number of positive benefits. Changes in air pressure mean the smaller airways are encouraged to open, increasing lung usage and efficiency. 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.

The Shaker Medic Plus is the next generation model that employs improved airflow for higher intensity vibrations. Excellent for increasing expectoration, improving lung function and reducing dyspnoea. It is particularly beneficial for conditions such as COPD, Cystic Fibrosis, Bronchiectasis and Bronchitis.

The major benefit of the Shaker Medic Plus ‘multi-user’ version is that it can be reused when sterilised in an autoclave between uses.

Because your Shaker Medic Plus will be exposed to saliva during use, we recommend that your Shaker Medic Plus is cleaned after each use, following standard autoclave processes.
