“The course was a great introduction to the use of the Breather device to target respiratory muscle weakness.”
“Wonderful!! I loved the videos and resources. Very well organized! I learned more after taking this class. Very informative. thank you for the goal samples! Feel I need a better grasp on how to establish a baseline, but realize that each patient will be different. Hopefully, that information will be available on the website.”
“This topic was very well presented. I will now be able to treat clients with respiratory muscle weakness with new confidence. I liked the presenter. The course instructions were clear to begin the course. The cost of the course was reasonable. Clear and concise information. This course did a great job in providing me with the information that I need to feel confident incorporating this into my practice.”
“The course was excellent! I will use the information I learned from this course immediately with my patients. The presentation was clear and helpful in beginning the process.”
“This was incredibly helpful!! She presented the information so well. She was easy to listen to. Nice clear presentation!! I would have liked more on how to determine the appropriate level, to begin with, and also have her talk about the freq. I have watched other videos before about the 2 sets of 10 2x a day but a review would have been nice and how that may look if modified.”
“Enjoyed the course. Learned new information. Feel I will be able to use this information in my practice.”
“Excellent assessment suggestions to make it accessible to most clinicians of different specialties without breaking the bank!”
“Wonderful. I am excited to use it more with my incoming COVID history patients. A very helpful course. I was hoping there would be more in-depth knowledge that I could not obtain from the free training videos. I found the instructional videos helpful”
