About The Breather
The Breather is the first drug-free, evidenced-based Inspiratory/Expiratory Respiratory Muscle Training (RMT) device used by COPD, CHF, Dysphagia, and Neuromuscular disease patients, as well as everyone interested in healthy aging and feeling their best. It trains both inspiratory and expiratory muscles independently. Clinical benefits of RMT include improved dyspnea, peak cough flow, laryngeal function, QOL, vent weaning, and speech and swallow performance.
After launching the original Breather for therapeutic use in 1980 and helping almost 1 million people to improve their quality of life, our therapists went back to the drawing board to make The Breather even better. Now with increased mouth comfort and easier inspiratory/expiratory dial control, The Breather is the #1 Best Selling Respiratory Muscle Trainer (RMT).
