The AirPhysio device provides a benefit in a number of quality-of-life parameters for a sufferer of any respiratory disorder. The team at the Tweed Coast-based AirPhysio are passionate about improving the day to day life of patients with breathing difficulties.
The AirPhysio device, pictured below, was conceived and designed to facilitate elimination of pulmonary mucus build up in conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, bronchiectasis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Clearance of mucus, in turn, helps with lung hygiene, and maintain or restore maximum lung capacity. The AirPhysio device is also usable as a general lung exerciser and respiratory physiotherapy device to assist with reducing breathlessness during exercise, increase exercise tolerance, and reduction of recovery times between exercise periods. Rather than provide a drug-based intervention, the device uses a physical process termed Oscillating Positive Expiratory Pressure, which is a combination of vibration of the airways and an increase in endobronchial pressure that results in upward movement of trapped mucus in the lungs for expulsion through coughing or swallowing.
Designed and made in Australia, the AirPhysio device has already attracted national and international accolades, including an international “best product” award at China’s 3rd largest import trade fair and an interview with US TV host Kathy Ireland.
