Why does the breather have 6 settings on the inhale while only 5 on the exhale?
Inhalation and active exhalation utilize distinct muscles and muscle groups.
The diaphragm and the external intercostals are for example used for inhalation, whereas exhalation activates the internal intercostals and abdominal muscles. Therefore, inspiratory and expiratory muscle groups respond differently to training, with different maximum capacities (which are reflected by the differences between MIP (maximum inspiratory pressure) and MEP (maximum expiratory pressure). The distinct intensity settings on the Breather for inhale and exhale were adapted for optimal training of both muscle groups.
Hello, I was wondering why The Breather has 6 settings on the inhale while only 5 on the exhale?
Inhalation and active exhalation utilize distinct muscles and muscle groups. The diaphragm and the external intercostals are for example used for inhalation, whereas exhalation activates the internal intercostals and abdominal muscles. Therefore, ...
How does the Breather differ from a Peak Flow Device?
The peak flow meter measures the airflow through the bronchi and thus the degree of obstruction in the airways. Readings from a peak flow meter can help one to recognize early changes that may be signs of worsening asthma. The breather however, is a ...
What are the differences between the Original Breather (Blue or Pink), Breather Fit and Breather Voice?
The Breather(Blue and Pink) is lower in resistance. Breather Fit and Breather Voice are higher in resistance. Breather Fit and Voice are the same levels of resistance, just separated from the different resources provided on our website for each user. ...
Is The Breather Similar to a NIF?
THE BREATHER is Inspiratory and Expiratory pressure resistance muscle strengthening /training. Patients that use the Breather can see an improvement in NIF, which would be similar to improvement in MIP, as well as improvement in MEP. Note: The ...
What pressure does each number on the breather represent?
The pressures generated by the specific settings of the Breather are flow dependent, and differ in healthy people/athletes/those with respiratory impairment. Please, have a look at our website for typical pressure ranges: ...
