The Breather® is a respiratory trainer/exerciser that improves lung strength and capacity by improving oxygen uptake to vital organs. It trains both inspiratory and expiratory muscles independently with the dial control features. The Breather® is used by patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), dysphagia, and neuromuscular disease, as well as anyone interested in healthy aging and feeling their best.
The expiratory muscles in particular have been shown to improve swallowing and cough, helping individuals with dysphagia. Expiratory Muscle Strength Training (EMST) has been shown to activate the movement of the hyolaryngeal complex, and this improved hyolaryngeal excursion during swallowing helps to facilitate airway protection and assists in opening the upper esophagus. Respiratory Muscle Training (RMT) in athletes and healthy individuals using The Breather® led to improved respiratory functions, heart rate, peripheral muscle strength, and exercise performance.
The Breather® trains both inspiratory and expiratory muscles independently with the dial control features.

The Breather® is designed for respiratory, speech, occupational, and physical therapists, as well as patients who are diagnosed with conditions including COPD, asthma, trach / vent weaning, dysphagia, stroke, hypertension, Parkinson’s, chronic heart failure, ICU, and acquired weakness. Many people that are involved in sports use this to help with their muscle training for breathing.
"I’m an Speech Therapist, very good research shows respiratory strength training can help with voice and many other health issues. Using The Breather, a recent patient had immediate improvement with severe vocal weakness (such that person couldn’t be understood)." – Speech-language pathologist
"I have been a respiratory therapist for 37 years. I do pulmonary rehab now in skilled facilities. I use The Breather for COPD and PTS with dysphagia. With time I see their short of breath decline and ability to ambulate further. I also instruct users to help with anxiety that prevents PTS from doing pursed-lip breathing." – Virginia G.
"I’m end-stage emphysema, 23% lung capacity. I began using The Breather about a month ago and have seen tremendous results. My endurance is much better, I don’t use my oxygen as much (hardly at all during the day) and my overall breathing is better. I would highly recommend the Breather to anyone with respiratory problems, it’s been a game-changer for me!" – Michael S.
"I have COPD and purchased The Breather to strengthen my diaphragm muscles. I have significantly improved my breathing by using it every day. It also helps to empty your lungs of phlegm which makes breathing so much better. I have and will continue to tell people about how great this product is. Thank you so much. It is worth every penny!!" – Robert B.
