Breathing trainers that use Pressure Threshold Loading, feature a calibrated, spring-loaded, one-way valve, calibrated at variable breathing loads, or resistances, which the user selects. The spring-loaded valve will only open when inspiratory or expiratory pressure exceeds the threshold set by the user on the device, thereby presenting a challenge for the breathing muscles to overcome.
