Acapella Duet – Nebulizer & Vibratory PEP Therapy
What is Acapella Duet?
- Acapella Duet is an innovative respiratory therapy device designed to aid people with respiratory issues in enhancing the function of their lungs.
- It blends two proven techniques – nebulization and PEP vibration therapy- to provide a single, practical solution, making Acapella Duet an ideal tool for treating chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis, asthma, or other respiratory disorders.
What’s the Nebulizer function?
- This Acapella Duet delivers medications directly to sufferers’ lungs by using oxygen or compressed air as the mist-generating agent to inhale the patient effortlessly.
- It provides immediate relief while improving respiratory function overall.
- It converts liquid medications into a fine mist that patients can breathe in much more efficiently while providing rapid relief and improving the respiratory system.
Vibratory PEP Therapy How Does It Work?
- Positive expiratory pressure (PEP) therapy is a method developed to cleanse airways and improve lung function.
- The Acapella Duet uses PEP by creating vibrations when you exhale that loosen mucus, allowing it to be removed from the lungs. It also creates positive pressure in the airways, ensuring their protection against collapse and boosting airflow.

Increased Airway Clearance
- Vibratory PEP therapy’s vibrational PEP feature helps remove mucus from the airways, improving respiratory hygiene.
- Loosening and mobilizing the mucus in this treatment helps reduce congestion while preventing the release of mucus that can cause respiratory infections.
