Inside the casing of the shaker is a weighted ball. By breathing into the Shaker Deluxe, 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.

Shaker Deluxe can be used anywhere, offering simple and convenient relief from excessive mucus and its associated problems. Shaker Deluxe 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 is reduced. Lung function is also improved, reducing breathlessness and fatigue.

Regular sessions with the Shaker Deluxe of between 5 to 15 minutes produce a beneficial effect, equivalent to that delivered by physiotherapy techniques.

  • Shaker Deluxe is a single user device and for hygiene purposes, should not be shared with other users.
  • Shaker Deluxe should not be used by individuals with pneumothorax.
  • Individuals with severe cardiovascular disease should only use Shaker Deluxe on advice from a Doctor.
  • Do not make changes to any prescribed medication or prescribed treatment programme without consulting your doctor.
  • Adult supervision may be required, when being used by children under the age of 16.
  • If you become dizzy while using Shaker Deluxe, stop the exercise and breathe calmly through the nose until the feeling stops. If dizziness occurs every time you use the Shaker Deluxe, inhale and exhale without the Shaker Deluxe every 3rd breath. Should dizziness persist, or any other problems arise whilst using Shaker, please stop using the device immediately and consult your physician.
  • Shaker Deluxe is designed to be used for mobilising pulmonary secretions. No other use is intended or implied. This product is not intended to diagnose, cure or prevent any disease.
  • Only devices sold in sealed packaging should be used.

The Shaker Deluxe should not be used by patients with the following conditions:

 

  • Pneumothorax

Because your Shaker Deluxe will be exposed to saliva during use, we recommend that your Shaker Deluxe is cleaned after use. Remove the mouthpiece, unscrew the back case and remove the ball and internal cone. Wash all parts in soapy water, rinse with clean water, dry thoroughly and re-assemble. Once a week we recommend that the device is cleansed using approved cleansing tablets, such as POWERbreathe Cleansing Tablets. You can also use a solution that is intended for use on equipment that comes into contact with the mouth, such as that used for babies’ bottles. If in doubt, ask your pharmacist.

  • Body, cone, lid and mouthpiece are all made from Injected polymide.
  • The weighted ball is nickel plated steel.

I have been able to regain the power in the muscles around my voice cords

I have been using the Shaker-deluxe from Powerbreathe for almost two years now and it has significantly improved my breathing and helped me to train my voice cords as one of them got paralysed during some head-surgery I had two years ago.

With the unique air pressure that is created when using the shaker-deluxe ( and the ability to manage that air pressure by changing the inclination of the shaker), I have been able to exercise on a daily basis and regain the power in the muscles around my voicecords. And the people at Powerbreathe have been extremely helpful lately when I needed a spare part for the shaker after I dropped it.

It’s been a real pleasure seeing that kind of great service as it adds to the overall positive experiences I’ve had so far with this product.
I wanted to drop you a mail to say how awesome the Shaker deluxe is.

I have Ulcerative Colitis and am suffering a flare up for which I was placed in hospital I also however suffer with bronchiectasis and when one condition plays up the other tends to join in because I need to keep exercising to keep the lungs controlled after a few weeks of stopping then the lungs get into issues.

Previously I've been using the Flutter ball but the vibrations are just not strong enough and I often find the ball just floats instead of vibrating. Using your device however and after 15 mins the mucus started moving and I could feel the weight shifting and being able to breathe again.

I'm looking forward over the coming weeks going back to exercising this breaking the cycle. I'm going to be using my Powerbreathe medic again to get my lungs back in shape.

Love your products and I'm hoping by using less medications now in my life will put me in good stead for later in life (I'm 37 and a Gig boat rower from Cornwall).

Thanks again and I will be sure to keep an eye on your products.
