Who We Are

Since 1980, we’ve been creating Respiratory Muscle Training (RMT) devices. We serve medical practitioners and their patients in the pulmonary and speech pathology industries. Our first device, The Breather, is an RMT for both inspiratory and expiratory muscle training.  

It was invented in 1979 by our Chief Clinical Officer, Peggy Nicholson, a former Respiratory Therapist. It was the first device of its kind. Since it was created, more than 60 patents have referenced The Breather’s simple yet effective design. Read the latest science and proof of efficacy.

We’re now continuing the tradition of being first to market with our newest invention, Breather II. It’s an intelligent device providing a combination of spirometry diagnostics, therapeutics, and remote patient monitoring. Its aim is to improve patient outcomes and lower healthcare costs.

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. As we develop our second generation device, Breather II. we are listening to doctors, therapists and patients around the world. If you’d like to take part in the development as a medical professional or a patient, contact us
