Product Info

AirPhysio is an award-winning mucus clearance and lung expansion OPEP device. The device utilises Oscillating Positive Expiratory Pressure (OPEP) to assist the body's natural lung cleaning and clearance to maintain optimal lung hygeine and help restore lung capacity. AirPhysio can be used alongside treatment of respiratory conditions such as asthma, COPD, Cystic Fibrosis and Bronchiestasis. AirPhysio can help you breathe easier all day long.

AirPhysio for Low Lung Capacity is designed for adults and teenagers with lower lung capacity, who often have an existing respiraory condition, to help help support and improve their day-to-day breathing or those older patients with lower lung capacity.

Includes two resistance settings. The ball bearings are interchangeable in the device, so you can choose which ball bearing suits your lung capacity.

  1. Average Lung Capacity Ball Bearing– Medium resistance for people with reasonable fitness or who have mild lung conditions like asthma, or COPD.
  2. Low Lung Capacity Ball Bearing– Low resistance for people with severe respiratory conditions who have a low lung capacity.

AirPhysio can help support;

  • Mucus clearance
  • Improved lung health
  • Open & expand airways 

How Does OPEP Work?

Oscillating Positive Expiratory Pressure (OPEP) utilises oscillations (vibrations) in the airways to mobilise mucus to allow smooth movement and removal from deep coughing motions. As a result, oxygen levels increase due to fewer mucus obstructions and helps us to breathe easier again.

How To Use

How to Use the AirPhysio Device

  • Take a deep breathe (abdominal breath) into your lungs and fill them completely
  • Hold your breathe for 2 to 3 seconds
  • Place the AirPhysio device into your mouth and exhale through the device at a reasonably fast, but consistent pace for between 3-5 seconds until you empty your lungs. i.e. don’t try and blow too hard too quickly as this may cause you to over exert your lung muscles and leaving you feeling tight in the chest, so take it easy and don’t push too hard.
  • Most people can get it oscillating without too much exertion, but some people struggle to start with. But once your lungs are at optimal lung capacity, you should be able to lift the ball bearing slightly off the cone and have it oscillating.
  • Adjust the device to have the cap facing the ceiling and tilt it until you feel maximum vibrations within your chest, try to keep cheeks stiff to help amplify the affect in your chest.
  • After exhaling through the device, you may feel mucus accumulating near the top of your lungs or at the back of your throat, if so, initiate a cough to expel the mucus. If not, the mucus will continue working up to the throat and maybe swallowed as a normal process.
  • Repeat steps 1 through 6 for approx. 2 times per minute for up to 5 minutes, taking two deep breaths in between each session to reduce the chance of feeling lightheaded.

Caution

This exercise may make you feel lightheaded. This is normal due to the amount of carbon dioxide being exhaled. When you feel lightheaded, take a break and breathe normally until the lightheaded feeling passes. If you try to overexert and push yourself too far, there is a chance that you may pass out and lose consciousness.

Note: Clean AirPhysio after each therapy session and store in a clean, dry location.
