Comprehensive Respiratory Muscle Training

Respiratory Muscle Training from gives you the chance to handle your abnormal respiratory functions better. RMT can help with dyspnea, activity intolerance, decreased breath support for speech production and safe swallowing, thereby increasing your quality of life.

Respiratory Muscle Training (RMT) with The Breather can:

•  Improve inspiratory muscle strength and endurance

•  Reduce breathlessness

•  Increase exercise capacity

Research has proved that RMT is more effective than physical exercise alone in helping COPD patients.

If you have suffered from a cerebral vascular accident or stroke, the stroke inspiratory and expiratory muscle training with The Breather can help support your respiratory rehabilitation.

By combining respiratory muscle training with breathing training, you can count on us to help strengthen weakened respiratory musculature.

By strengthening the respiratory muscles, The Breather can reduce the frequency of asthma attacks, making it easier to go about your daily activities.

With the help of respiratory muscle training with The Breather, you can alleviate asthma symptoms, which will help you reduce your dependency on bronchodilators or inhalers.

Regular Respiratory Muscle Training (RMT) with The Breather can improve general muscle strength and blood flow to the limbs. This therapy can also improve your heart rate, which in turn will help you tackle the underlying cause of diseases.

If you’re suffering from Parkinson’s disease, respiratory muscle training with The Breather will help your lungs function better and improve your airway’s defense mechanism. Increasing your expiratory muscle strength improves your coughing, swallowing, and breathing capacities.

If you have a child who’s suffering from muscular dystrophy, the respiratory muscle strengthening effect of The Breather can help reduce the respiratory effort during breathing.

Respiratory muscle training (RMT) is recommended as a complementary therapy in patients with multiple sclerosis. RMT with the Breather can increase expiratory muscle strength essential for cough and airway clearance, and lead to better control of airway obstructions.

Regular inspiratory and expiratory muscle training with the Breather can improve muscle strength and lung function in patients with Myasthenia Gravis (MG). RMT can therefore reduce dyspnea and delay the breathing crisis and need for mechanical ventilation. In combination with breathing training, RMT can improve chest wall mobility and respiratory patterns in MG patients.

Strengthening of respiratory muscles by application of the Breather can improve congenital as well as exercise induced vocal fold pathologies. Regular respiratory muscle training (RMT) with the Breather can lead to reduced dyspnea during speech and exercise, and to increased exercise capacity.

Expiratory muscle strength is essential for optimal cough and swallow function. Strengthening of the expiratory muscles by regular application of the Breather can alleviate the symptoms of dysphagia by improving cough volume and acceleration, and reduce the risk of penetration and aspiration associated with dysphagia.

Respiratory muscle training (RMT) with the Breather leads to increased respiratory muscle strength. Increased respiratory muscle strength significantly increases the chances of successful weaning of patients with long-term mechanical ventilation. RMT has been recommended as a clinically safe method to improve weaning outcome.

Strengthening of respiratory muscles with the Breather can help patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) in the acute phase by improving cough function, reducing dyspnea and increasing quality of life. Respiratory muscle training (RMT) with the Breather can also support people and athletes with chronic SCI by increasing exercise performance and lung capacity.

Increased respiratory muscle strength achieved by application of the Breather can severely reduce sleep apnea, especially in elderly people with sleep disorders. Respiratory muscle training (RMT) with the Breather can improve sleep quality and quantity, and reduce the number of awakenings during the night. In addition, RMT can lower the blood pressure.

It can also help preserve respiratory function and well-being in children with neuromuscular diseases.
