POWERbreathe Inspiratory Muscle Training
POWERbreathe has been specifically designed to strengthen and develop the breathing muscles using pressure threshold training. The POWERbreathe system is essentially a weight-training device for the diaphragm and intercostal muscles and has been dubbed as a ‘Dumbbell for your diaphragm’.
POWERbreathe works by making the user breathe against an adjustable calibrated resistance. The breathing muscles work harder to open a valve inside the device and over a short period of time the breathing muscles adapt to cope with lifting the weight. The result is improved breathing power, strength, endurance and recovery.
Whether the user is a professional athlete or suffering from a respiratory illness POWERbreathe offers a range of devices to suit the specific demands of the user:
The new POWERbreathe Kinetic range offers the latest in electronic breathing training technology. This innovative hand held device, delivering results in only 30 breaths twice a day, automatically calibrates to the users training requirements and provides personalised training sessions. Training results can then be reviewed to monitor performance improvements, including increased respiratory muscle strength and endurance.
With scientifically proven applications ranging from sports performance (training and testing) to medical use (COPD, asthma, emphysema etc.), the Kinetic range is now available in three different models, from the base K1 model to the more advanced K3 model including a 38 session memory.
