AirPhysio is a drug-free handheld Oscillating Positive Expiratory Pressure (OPEP) lung physiotherapy device. It uses an all-natural process, which creates a vibration in your lungs. It is designed to help with mucus clearance and lungs expansion, improve your lung capacity and help you breathe easier.
The AirPhysio device:
- Vibrates the airways, which loosens mucus from the airway walls;
- Intermittently increases endobronchial pressure (positive pressure in the airways), which assists to maintain the clearing of the airways while you exhale so that mucus does not become trapped as it moves up the air canal;
- Accelerates expiratory airflow, which facilitates the upward movement of the mucus through the airways so that it can be more easily cleared.
