For 40 years, PN Medical has been helping people worldwide improve their respiratory health and performance with a dedication to evidence-based science, cutting-edge research, and innovative product development. PN Medical has enabled more than 1.28 million people to breathe better, including those who want to decrease the burden of chronic illness or achieve a higher level of human performance without drugs.

THE BREATHER, invented in 1980 by respiratory therapist Peggy Nicholson, broke new ground as the first respiratory muscle training device of its kind. It is endorsed by clinicians who provide Respiratory Muscle Training (RMT) worldwide as an effective way to treat respiratory, cardiac and neuromuscular impairments.

PN Medical is now developing digital devices, software and prototypes to move the company into the next phase of its evolution. New technologies and solutions that push the barriers of human performance in sports, on the field of battle and in the boardroom are now being tested in special operations units and at leading hospitals. Those solutions soon will be offered to the general public.

In late 2019, PN Medical launched Breather University, designed for clinicians, trainers, coaches and the people they serve. Breather University’s promise is to provide people with new cardiopulmonary research, accredited certifications, education, insight and resources to move healthcare and human performance forward for all of us.
