Respiratory Training Device

The Respiratory Training Device is designed for in-home use for those more susceptible to respiratory disease and infection, including people with spinal cord injury, which can lead to more serious, long-term health complications. It is used to improve and maintain your respiratory health.

With over 15 years of research focused on pulmonary and cardiovascular function after spinal cord injury, it has been  shown that respiratory training can improve the function of both the heart and the lungs in people with spinal cord injury.


“Overall I have found that the Respiratory Training Device is a good exercise for my lungs and breathing muscles.  It is definitely harder than it looks and I feel like it has helped with my breathing capacity.  I like that I can increase the load whenever I’m ready and I can see how my strength has improved.  It is easy and convenient to use at home and requires minimal assistance.  The Respiratory Training Device is easy to store, travels well, and is easily cleaned.  I would recommend it to others who are looking for in-home training options.”
