Who We Are


PN Medical creates respiratory and speech pathology devices for inspiratory and expiratory muscle training.  Our founder, Peggy Nicholson, a Registered Respiratory Therapist, created the first no-nonsense device out of a simple idea back in 1979 - find a better way to help people improve breathing.  
 
She then embarked on a multi-year trek to bring her dream to life.  After a few years of research, prototypes, and field studies with patients she took lessons learned from the field and created an affordable easy to use device, The Breather®.  A patient even named the product.  Today, the company is a family affair, led by Peggy and her daughter, Susan.

Why We Do It


The promise made to patients 35 years ago holds true today.  

We will always find a way to improve the quality of people’s lives by doing one thing well – help them breathe better.  

That promise is stronger than ever and the fuel that keeps us striving to make a difference all these years later.  We are currently on a new trek to invent a Breather that will build from all our learnings and help us maintain that promise.  Stay tuned.

WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY

I breathe so much easier and am able to clear congestion better with the Breather than any other method. I have better results with it than with the prescription inhalers I have used over the years, and there are none of the worrisome "side effects" which accompany so many medications. I find “The Breather” to be quick and easy to use.

The Breather is inexpensive and easy to use for all patients providing an opportunity to strengthen voice, intelligibility, and swallow simultaneously. It easily teaches diaphragmatic breathing which is often difficult for patients who experience shortness of breath. The resistances allow patients to measure success and aid in other respiratory exercises such as duration and quality of sustained phonation.

I’ve been using the Breather almost every day for the past 10 years for my personal health. Forced expiration is the only exercise that strengthens the transversus abdominus muscle.

Upon the first week of using the Breather, it was difficult to feel any change, then all of a sudden it truly felt like something broke loose, and now I am enjoying much freer breathing. Thanks to the Breather - maybe in time I will be able to play the trumpet; trouble is, I never could.

An excellent oral/motor muscle trainer. My patients practice 3 sets of 5, twice a day. The results have been amazing. All that have used the Breather have made remarkable progress, especially my dysphagia patients. They were able to swallow more safely, and their diets were upgraded.

The resistive breather has been an essential tool in my home health care medical bag for the past 7 years. Frequently, I use the resistive breather in conjunction with LSVT and traditional voice therapy, as well as with dysphagia patients. It's easy to use, measurable (PEF and MPT), and patients are likely to comply with daily carry-over.
