What product is most important to have if you have a respiratory disease? 

The main concern when you have a respiratory disease is that you are able to breathe without struggling.

How can life at home with a respiratory illness or disease be more comfortable? 

Comfort is such a huge priority, especially when you’re suffering with respiratory issues. Here are a few tips on how to be more comfortable at home:  

  • Drink plenty of water: Water helps loosen mucus trapped in your lungs and can help you breathe better.  
  • Build a caddy: Keeping a caddy containing your necessities near your bed or chair can prevent the need to constantly get up and down, especially when breathing becomes challenging. 
  • Have a caregiver or RT close by: Keeping someone close by in case you run into an issue can help keep your independence but also keep you safe if an emergency arises.

AffloVest is designed to mimic the gold standard CPT by utilizing 8 oscillating motors that are anatomically positioned to create personalized therapy.
