POWERbreathe EX1 EMT Breathing Trainers
The POWERbreathe EX1 Expiratory Muscle Training (EMT) breathing trainers from POWERbreathe use pressure threshold loading to challenge the expiratory muscles. The training is like weightlifting for your expiratory muscles.
The precisely calibrated resistance spring provides the breathing load. The higher the load is set (measured in cmH2O), the harder it is to exhale against the resistance and to open the valve to enable exhalation through the device. This challenge on your exhalation to open the valve enhances expiratory muscle structure and function and improves expiratory muscle strength and endurance.
POWERbreathe EX1 Training Protocol
The established training protocol for expiratory muscle training is 5 x 5 x 5:
- 5 x exhales
- 5 times a day
- 5 days a week
