The PowerLung Respiratory Trainer is designed to be used for exercise and training of your respiratory muscles by using a method known as threshold resistance to train and strengthen the respiratory muscles that support your breathing. Each model in the range is designed to improve respiratory muscle endurance dependent on your level of activity.
The device will train your inhale and exhale muscles, which are vital in breathing. PowerLung has been proven to increase lung capacity by 25% and respiratory power by 20%. By using the device as little as 5-10 minutes twice a day, it will help you to breathe deeper, reduce breathlessness and build endurance.
Please note, PowerLung products are designed to be used for exercise and training only. Any other use is not recommended. PowerLung products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any condition. Consult your GP before using it.
How Powerlung Works
Some muscles support your breathing. Just like any other muscle in your body, the best way to make them stronger and more efficient is to strength train them. Imagine a person who trains or exercises with weights, machines or exercise bands.
How to increase lung capacity with PowerLung
In this case, lifting and lowering the weight. The weight creates a workload resistance for the muscles to work against and overcome. The more the person repeats the exercise pattern, the stronger his or her muscles become. As it becomes easier to do the exercise, the person can increase the threshold to help make the muscles stronger.
That is threshold resistance, a proven method of training used only by PowerLung. When you breathe in and out through the device, you work against a threshold of resistance that is the same for every breath. You are not breathing through a restricted orifice where the load can be reduced by changing how you breathe.
