(Green Model >15 Litres) by Smiths Medical
Smiths Medical Portex Acapella Vibratory PEP Therapy System is a Respiratory Therapy used for Breathing Therapy that combines the benefits of PEP therapy and airway vibrates to mobilize pulmonary secretions. Manufactured by Portex, the Acapella Device can be used sitting down, standing or reclined. Another benefit to PEP therapy and a vibratory valve is that it is much easier to tolerate than Chest Physical Therapy (CPT) and takes half the time of a conventional CPT session. Technically speaking, the valve facilitates the opening of airways in patients with lung disease who have secretory problems such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Asthma, or Cystic Fibrosis. The vibratory valve comes with instructions as well on how to operate the unit and optimally use it to your benefit.

Flutter Mucus Clearance Device
Flutter Flutter is a tiny light mucus clearing device that does not require power and can be operated anyplace at any time. Mucus production and elimination are crucial to the integrity of the airway and for pulmonary defense. If mucus that has been trapped is not cleared, it not just causes breathing difficulties and if it continues to build up, it could cause infection and damage to the lungs.
What is the Flutter Used For?
The Flutter can help with conditions like Cystic Fibrosis, Bronchiectasis, Emphysema and Chronic Bronchitis as well as COPD.
Loosens Mucus in the Airways
The patient exhales air into the device, which causes that ball to spin. The vibrations then travel back to the lungs, loosening the airways and lungs of mucus.
Effective alternative to physiotherapy
The Flutter is a viable alternative to physiotherapy, with brief sessions that typically last between 5 and 15 minutes to achieve maximum results.
When the flutter has eased the mucus, gentle coughing eliminates airways and helps prevent the build-up of mucus.
Small & Portal
